Fantastic location, staff happy to help in any way possible, a very safe and stimulating environment for the students. Our students all said it was their best trip ever and had an amazing experience on the game drives, nature walks and at the campsite. We were amongst the antelope and saw beautiful birds at the dam. We will definitely be coming again!

This is a beautiful place. The food is very nice the breakfast buffet was really good.the staff very friendly and welcoming. The only problem we encountered was at the golf. The reception told us to pay mk4000 only and at the golf they kept on charging and the price was shooting. The golf staff told us it's a different department.,the people at the reception don't know their prices. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay

Excellent break within easy reach of town. Great food and service, so much space, and lots of things to do, if you're feeling active. Great value, fantastic scenery and curious but unafraid wildlife everywhere you look.

Lilongwe, Malawi3 contributions
Game Haven is one of the best places in Malawi for relaxing in luxury or bringing guests, and definitely the best deal for the price. We've participated in most of the activities offered (golf, biking, walking safari, game drive), but much of the time, we just like resting in the amazing rooms knowing that we can opt in or out of any activities if we want to. Our favorite part of the day is the full (included) breakfast on the hill, watching to see what animals are close. I love the full tea service available in the rooms, the porches, and the big bath tubs. The staff are friendly, helpful, and flexible - they have assisted us with late check-ins and early check-outs over our trips. For a weekend away as a couple, a first stop for someone visiting the country, or a place to travel with friends, I really can't recommend this highly enough. This will continue to be one of our favorite retreats, well worth the drive from Lilongwe for the experience.

A great gate away from the city life to catch up and appreciate what Mother Nature has to offer. Loved the room, food 😍, and all activities we did including bike riding and game ride. Coming back for fishing 😉. Honestly, I would have rated 5 stars but the bar service was a bummer.
