Just 58km from Lilongwe, Dzalanyama is a range of steep sided hills that run 70 km from the northwest to southeast of the central region forming the border between Malawi and Mozambique.
The location of the house above the crystal-clear Makata stream is ideal as the surrounding Brachystegia trees attract a wide variety of birds and butterflies. There is a magnificent waterfall and stunning pools only a couple of kilometres away and the house is kitted with maps of the different hikes, walks and mountain biking trails as well as a species location map for the birding enthusiasts to ensure that you make the most of your weekend away.
Dzalanyama´s main attraction is the abundant bird life, it is renowned for being a fantastic location to see the Sterling´s Woodpecker. However hyena, leopard and recently a small group of sable antelope have been spotted, along with the regular sightings of baboon and duiker.
