We urgenlty needed to travel to Malawi on business and our stay turned into a delightful mini-break as a result of staying at Kumbali, where the renound "warm heart of Africa" hospitality is at the centre of this lodge.
We last stayed at Kumbali ten years ago, when the lodge was first built. It has grown into itself and the gardens are now very established with huge indeginous and exotic trees set amongst the extensive rolling lawns. Our room was enormous and positioned in such a way that we felt we were the only people staying at the lodge. We watched the sunrise from the comfort of our bed and the only interruption was the sweet sound of birdsong.
Breakfast was a treat and the yogurt produced in the Kumbali dairy is divine. Jess's Malawi-grown coffee is an experience in itself and there was no better way to start the day than savoring it from the verandah, whilst overlooking the swimming pool with only the forest and distant mountains as the view, all the way to the horizon.
Service was exceptional, to the extent that my laundry was done, just because I'd left my clothes on the floor. Our urgent business was conculded very serenely and we returned to Cape Town truly refreshed and with an exceptionally full and happy heart. I would not hesitate to recommend Kumbali - it turned it business into pleasure!
