Thyolo Tea Estates

Between Blantyre and Mount Mulanje are the Thyolo (pronounced "Cho’lo") tea estates. Tea has been grown here since 1908 and the primly trimmed bushes (strictly trees) give the whole area the appearance of a neatly kept but vast garden. By arrangement it is possible to tour some of the estates and see something of the work of these plantations. The Thyolo Forest Reserve offers a haven for walkers and birdwatchers.

Accommodation is available within the tea estate at Huntingdon House, origionally a family home built in 1928. Also close by is Game Haven, a private reserve between the tea estates and Blantyre
