The room was comfortable! Kyle, Guy, and the staff were great. It’s a family owned business and can really sense that from the the people there. The property was gorgeous. The food was fantastic - as were the drinks. I wish I had more time to explore the area. They have another property on the lake that I would have loved to visit. Hopefully I will have the opportunity in the future.

Looking for a place to stay in Lilongwe - look no further than Kumbali! This is a very special place that Maureen and Guy have created and we had the most relaxing and wonderful week's stay. The rooms are large, comfortable and well-appointed - with beautiful views over the well-manicured landscaped lawns from the verandas - went very well with the sunset glass of wine! We thoroughly enjoyed walks across the farm and through the banana plantation. And as for the staff - friendly and attentive, without being overbearing. Added to all this is the excellent cuisine - will be back, so see you soon!

Having to travel to travel to Lilongwe for business I looked for a hotel with superior service and comfort and am pleased to say Kumbali hit the mark. The staff were extremely polite and responsive to requests. They were proactive in every manner. The managers took the time to address me by my name. The rooms were very large and comfortable. We took advantage of the airport transport and used their car service a few times, which was timely and safe. The food service was also good. Best of all while this would be a great place for a vacation, as I was on business the WiFi service was perfect. Fast and reliable.

Thank you for you a wonderful time at Kumbali Lodge. In spite of a few issues, that staff was very accommodating and made our stay a wonderful experience. Beautiful rooms, excellent vegetarian meal options and outstanding staff. My husband went on the bird tour while took advantage of a relaxing morning on the terrace. Again, thank you for kindness.

We picked this luxurious lodge as it was a beginning of a new decade & also Madonna the Queen Of Pop's favourite place in Malawi. The Best Lodge in Lilongwe. Beautiful spacious rooms, well manicured gardens. The pool was green 🤭. Well stocked bar. What away to celebrate 2020. For all your needs, please contact Bernadette (Lodge Manager) 🙏🇱🇰🙏
