    It's a beautiful mountain range to climb. Organised a Hash Day out. Beautiful. To go to the second mountain is challenging

    The World War Memorial is set in the same compound as a statue of Hastings Kamuzu Banda. There are some staff who can give one a tour, which is largely just a climb up the inside of the tower. There is no fee, but a tip is expected. There is not lift, one must go up a flight of stairs, before virtually scaling up vertically, on some metal bars to the top. At the top, one can get a good view of Lilongwe; Capital Hill, Parliament, even Bingu Stadium, and the wilderness and greenery that defines Lilongwe.

    A place to go if you need to buy presents to take away or to your own home. Or if say if you love African Art, Souvenirs, you must shop at Old Town Mall

    We spent most of the morning here before setting out for Nyika NP, a long drive away. #Birding was quite good along the small river that flows thru the preserve. We also saw a troop of Vervet monkeys

    The trails in the preserve are well maintained and suitable for children as well as adults.

    This is well worth spending a morning.

    Located next to the Parliament Building. There is a person from the Ministry to give you a tour and background on the late President and the mausoleum. Free but I gave a donation.

    This is the Muslim House of Worship which is near Lilongwe Central. Walking distance to major attractions and surely an advantage for Muslim tourist to perform their prayers while being in town.

    We found the gardens because we had heard of the excellent prices for plants. We were shocked when we paid ~ $USD40 for 200+plants.
    We walked around a little while there, but it was delightful to see how many people (groups of 10 - 50) were enjoying a picnic or nap under the trees.

    Nice little market with a good few stalls selling arts & crafts, wood carvings etc. A good place to pick up some gifts/souvenirs. Be prepared to haggle.

    The congregation is very festive and the mass has an obvious African flare. If you like the hustle and bustle of praise and worship, be sure to join the 8am mass. For a quieter and more relaxed mass, join the 17:00 mass. This is a beautiful parish in need of some good people for fresh ideas.
