Central African Highlands
Mount Mulanje and the Zomba Plateau

Rising 1,800 metres in the south is the Zomba Plateau - another mountainous paradise of lofty waterfalls, pristine lakes, verdant valleys, and dramatic table-top peaks. Below is the town of Zomba, the former colonial capital of Malawi and worth visiting for its lively market and colonial architecture. Further south is Mount Mulanje, Central Africa’s highest peak. Rising to almost 3,000 metres and covering an area of 600 square kilometres, this impressive massif of granite forms part of the Mulanje Mount Forest Reserve.
