Comment: Our 4-day trek on Mulanje Massif, was excellent from start to finish. We were warmly welcomed and well briefed.

Our guide was first class, very knowledgeable and sensitive to our individual needs. Arrangements for porterage and cooking were good too and the meals were excellent (and copious).

Weather conditions, in July, were perfect for walking. We will go again and stay longer!!
