Villa Liwonde at the doorsteps of the top ranked Liwonde National Park is a great place for HIPPO and BIRD watching who love to pool there in early afternoon hours in the river. A place that renews your spirits. This gem offers optional self-catering facilities assisted by a cook in stunning greenery. Fully equipped kitchen, bbq stand, campfire site and even a "fairy-tale" oven house in the garden for wood oven pizza. With prior notice we can also offer full board. You can hire the cottage exclusively or rent rooms and share the community facilities. This gem can easily be reached all year round even with public transport and without a 4x4. Safaris start next door twice a day. Rooms with modern comfort (air-cons, all ensuite except one) in African classic design combinded with nature!
We are happy to open Villa Liwonde to a wider public and make the Liwonde National Park Experience affordable. The place has been a great source of inspiration for poetry and art.
