Location of Thawale Lodge in Majete Wildlife Reserve

The Thawale Lodge is ideally located in the Majete Game Reserve, on the lower Shire Valley in Malawi and is an estimate 70 km away from the Blantyre Chileka International Airport and Lake Malawi.

The Majete Game Reserve is renowned for its exceptional conservation efforts with African Parks and together they reintroduced 2 559 animals back into the wild.

Among the amazing creatures that roam the Majete Reserve are sable, buffalo, leopard, black rhino, eland, lion and elephant. The Majete Wildlife Reserve is the only reserve in Malawi where guests can view the Big Five.

Along with the restoration of wildlife in the Majete Wildlife Reserve came the improvement of infrastructure, scientific monitoring and law enforcement to make the reserve the best tourist destination in all of Malawi.
