Zomba, now a small town in eastern Malawi, was the capital of British ruled Nyasaland. After independence in 1964, Nyasaland was renamed Malawi and the capital shifted to Lilongwe. The relocation of the capital helped to preserve the colonial heritage of Zomba, which was known as the greenest capital of the British Empire. We happily guide you along the beautiful white vernacular architecture as we tell you about the colonial origins of Malawi and the key people who shaped it. You will hear the good, the bad and the ugly with the help of a multi media presentation. Highlights include the old secretariat, Sir Harry Johnston's residence, the state house and the Gymkhana Club.
In addition to tours through the historical town we offer tours around the plateau where you can appreciate Chingwe's hole, stunning views, forest air and relaxing waterfalls.
All tours are custom made to suit your time schedule and desired means of transport: on foot, by bike, or by car.
