The premises is well maintained and situated just outside a military base. As I love history and especially historic war graveyards, this visit was a bucket item for me.

The King African Rifles Monument is a sobering insight into the contributions of British colonies to global efforts of the empire. The names of hundreds of Malawian soldiers killed in WW I are engraved in the plaques positioned around the monument. Worth a short stop!

The KAR Monument is a memorial to soldiers from Nyasaland that perished during World War I. Access and parking are easy, it is well kept up and there were no hawkers when we visited. All as it should be for this type of monument.
