Plateau Stables has now closed down in Zomba, but operates from Luwawa Forest Reserve . Luwawa is 4 hours drive north of Lilongwe. Only short rides or 2-4 hour rides at the moment, but they plan to do multi day trips later. One self catering hut at the site or more accomodation at nearby Luwawa Forest Lodge.

Maggie at Luwawa Forest was great to work with! Her staff were scheduled to have the next day off but they accommodated our family of 4. She and her staff were friendly. We're all beginners, our only other time riding was at the Zomba location with Anne (that was also a great experience).

The horses seems to be well taken care of and the staff was very friendly and polite. The ride is an excellent way to experience the Zomba plateau!

Maggie and Brian displayed a natural sense of hospitality and ensured that everything we had everything we needed during our stay. The whole experience ran smoothly and we were happy share it with them. They are very passionate and knowledgeable about horses. They displayed professionalism towards beginner and advanced riders and guided riders at their own pace. We absolutely loved the horse riding and the experience as a whole, and highly recommend this to anyone visiting Zomba or Luwawa. We stayed in a newly well built cottage in Luwawa, which is fully equipped and self catering. The views are jaw dropping and privacy is ensured. Make sure that you have all the food you need as there aren't any stores near by. It is 2 hours from Mzuzu and +- 4 hours from Lilongwe. This is a must in Malawi.

My friends and I camped at Luwawa at the end of November for a few nights and so glad that we were able to organize a ride while we were there. Maggie, her husband, and team were easy to communicate with, flexible on the scheduling as it was rainy season, and very kind and welcoming. We had varying experience levels riding horses (from previously competitive riders to just riding on vacations as a kid) and Maggie was able to select horses based on this and our comfort levels. We were provided with helmets. The scenery was absolutely beautiful and Maggie and our guide were knowledgeable about the trails, knowing where we could trot/canter a bit during the ride. Felt very comfortable during the whole experience. The horses were beautiful and well taken care of. Definitely would recommend this experience and hope to go back soon!
