Malawi Lodge - Run by two British motorbikers
It is with great pleasure that I announce that Rachel and I have opened Malawi Lodge (Malawi Accommodation, Lilongwe Guesthouse, Cheap Lodge in Lilongwe
We have been travelling the world (first by motorbike and then by campervan) for the past few years and we have finally settled in Malawi.
We love overlanders and have a number of trips under our belts. We have ridden motorbikes from the UK to India, UK to Mongolia and more recently driven a VW Campervan around South America we hope with all that experience that we know what you're after!
With comfortable accommodation, delicious food, roof top terrace, hot showers, cold
s and mechanics on hand you can't go wrong. Breakfast is included (a decent one - not just bread and jam! Eggs, fruit, decent coffee etc).
We actually set up the lodge to house volunteers for a school and sports centre the charity we run (Charity Gifts, Volunteer Work Africa, Malawi School UK
) is building over the road. So if you fancy hanging around for a while and playing some sport or even helping out with building we will set you to work. There's not a whole load of sightseeing to do in Lilongwe and we think it's the best thing to do in the city (we are a little biased!).
We understand the mechanical disasters that can happen on the trip and we will help try and sort you out with reliable mechanics and parts suppliers. Some people have in the past used us to store their bikes and have parts delivered to us. We will help you out!
The lodge is in the West of Lilongwe (-13.943387,33.729475). It's in a village called Mtandire. Head North on the main road from African Bible College. When you are at the dip in the road where all the buses meet (this is called 'spearhead') Take a left and head up through the village. Ask anyone for 'Lingadzi Academy' and they will know where. But it's just 5 minutes up the road.
We look forward to meeting you!
Tom and Rachel
