Situated in Majete Wildlife Reserve, in the Lower Shire Valley, one hour drive from Blantyre. Thawale Lodge provides excellent accommodation for visitors wishing to enjoy game viewing in the newly re-stocked reserve. Long neglected, Majete has been the scene of an impressive programme of re-location. Up to date 2,559 animals from 14 different species have been reintroduced including the big five, leopard, elephant, buffalo, black rhino and lion. Other mammals reintroduced were eland, sable, waterbuck, nyala, hartebeest, impala, zebra, warthog and bush pig. This makes Majete one of the only reserves in Malawi where the BIG FIVE can be viewed all year round. The re-birth of Majete has been the work of the organisation African Parks Network.
Situated within Majete around a serene floodlit waterhole that attracts a variety of wildlife, Thawale Lodge is a peaceful haven from which to experience Majete. Completely unfenced, the camp is regularly visited by wildlife.
Thawale Lodge offers six double and twin tented chalets all en-suite and each with its own private veranda overlooking the waterhole. The more luxurious chalet has a unique open air bathroom built among the rocks with a shower and a sunken bath and views of the floodlit waterhole. The lodge also has a newly built family chalet. With two en-suite rooms, a kitchen and small living area it can sleep up to six people. The chalets are spaced out to offer visitors privacy and an individual bush experience. A communal lapa (traditional lounge area) with a fully staffed kitchen is available in the centre of the camp. Fresh meals are served in the beautiful thatched restaurant and bar with a birding veranda. Thawale is fully electrified and chalets have sockets, phone network and fans.
