Activities & Experiences

Sunbird Lilongwe offers a variety of activities and experiences for you to enjoy and experience first hand.

Lake Malawi

An hour’s drive south of Lilongwe, on the M1, is Dedza Mountain. In Dedza itself, the famed Dedza pottery creates and exports its wares worldwide. This is their only viewing house. On your way, there are unimpeded views from the mountains here across Lake Malawi to the East, and far into Mozambique to the West. The pleasant climate and reliable rainfall means the area supplies much of Lilongwe’s fruit and vegetables.

Game & Lakeside trip

Kuti Game ranch, just outside Salima, is also an hour’s drive from Sunbird Lilongwe. It covers 3000 ha and is a haven for wildlife, from big mammals to hundreds of species of birds. Minutes from here you can visit Africa’s third largest lake to sample the fresh waters of Lake Malawi at Sunbird Livingstonia Beach.
