We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Kumbali Country Lodge. The festive season is always a delight with twinkling lights and high spirits. Our team will be happy to hear that you enjoyed the food. We do try to ensure that although you are not home during the Christmas period, you are surrounded by good food and the friendly company of our Kumbali family.

I only stayed here for one night but wish we had longer! Both the breakfast and dinner were the best food I had in the three weeks I was in Malawi. Food is grown on site and it even has its own dairy. It is a very luxurious lodge and would encourage anyone to stay.
