Zomba Plateau

There are very few places as evocative as the Zomba Plateau. It is easy to forget you are in Africa as the roads twist and turn their way up the 1800m rise into this highland paradise.

The very top of the plateau is a beautiful place. Streams cross one another, fighting their way to the lakes and waterfalls. Naturally, the views from this height are magnificent. There is an extensive network of paths that meander their way through the forests making Zomba perfect for hikers and ramblers.

The views from the plateau are worthy of a visit in themselves but Zomba is also home to leopards, baboons, stunning giant butterflies and birds of prey including the long crested eagle and the augur buzzard.
