Thawale Lodge is a peaceful haven from which to experience Majete Wildlife Reserve, the only Game reserve in Malawi where the “the big five” can be viewed. Completely unfenced, the Lodge is regularly visited by wildlife. Situated in the lower Shire valley in the south west of Malawi, approximately 70 kms from Blantyre’s Chileka International Airport, Sunbird Thawale Lodge offers four twin tented chalets, two double tented chalets and one family chalet all en-suite and each with its own private veranda overlooking the waterhole. The more luxurious chalet has a unique open air bathroom built among the rocks with a shower and a sunken bath and views of the floodlit waterhole. The chalets are spaced out to offer visitors privacy and an individual bush experience. A communal lapa (traditional lounge area) and kitchen is available where you can enjoy both local and international cuisine.
We recommend combining this safari with the Lake Malawi itinerary and also the Ku Chawe itinerary.

Majete also has a fully equipped boardroom available for meetings. Catering for up to 20 people, make your meeting, workshop or function an enjoyable event and combine it with some game viewing in the reserve.
