Thawale Lodge

Address: Majete National Park, Chikwawa view map

Thawale Camp provides excellent accommodation for guests visiting Majete Wildlife Reserve. Majete has recently undergone a transformation and guests can enjoy the wildlife from their private chalet balcony and watch the evening flow of animals come to the waterhole as they are having a sundowner.


Shelley and Anissa are the new managers at Thawale with a team of fantastic enthusiastic Malawians. African Parks is passionate about community involvement and almost the staffs are sourced from nearby communities.

This is an organisation that really cares for its destination and I have no doubt it will become a number 1 destination for wildlife enthusiasts in the near future.
