I stayed at Madidi for 2 nights at the beginning and end of my backpacking trip through Malawi. The lodge was the perfect place for some proper R&R after a tough 2 weeks by bus. The lodge is really an Oasis in Lilongwe with its beautiful vegetation and crystal clear swimming pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful. By the end of my trip my funds were limited but still the staff saw to it that i had a meal before my long journey back to South Africa. my gratitude goes out to everyone involved. Both Madidi and Malawi are absolute gems, I will definitely be back soon.
