Due to the corona crisis, we are temporarily closed
WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO THE CORONA CRISIS. Have a look at our different room types. We offer (bunk) beds in dorms (18 beds; $10/$15), 2 private en-suite rooms ($40/$50), 2 private rooms with shared facilities, as well as tents in the dry season! We also cater for groups. Please contact us for information & bookings..
*NEW* DELIVERY SERVICE WITHIN ZOMBA ON TUESDAYS ONLY. Have a drink in our relaxing garden, or come for a nice meal in our restaurant. Our restaurant serves local & international freshly prepared food from 8AM till 6PM. We cater for most diets (vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, lactose intolerant, etc.)
OUR MEETING PLACE IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. We organise events & training courses in our meeting room and the space is available for meetings and studying. Don't hesitate to contact us if you want to use the room for a meeting or if you want to organise a show.
WE WILL STILL OFFER TRIPS & ACTIVITIES DURING THE CORONA CRISIS. Ready for some action? Pakachere offers different kinds of trips & workshops. We also share our personal experiences of traveling around Malawi with links to nice places to stay in the country. Have a look and book your favourite!
We organise ONLINE quiz nights every 2 months. Dr Mike makes 6 rounds of fairly difficult questions. Usually with a picture round, entertainment, sports, science & nature, and pot luck. Teams of 4 people via WhatsApp. Start 7PM on Zoom and usually finished by 10. Check our Facebook page for dates!.
Yoga is good for mind & body. Sometimes we organise low-budget no-frills yoga events in a weekend. We do yoga most Tuesdays at 6PM (K1,000) and if there is not teacher available, we use videos or share our favourite moves. WE HOPE TO RESTART SOON
We love music and we love to dance. ONE DAY WE WILL BE BACK WITH PARTIES. Sometimes we invite DJs to play till late. In the dry season we organise garden parties with live music, food (barbecue & cakes) and drinks (cocktails and more). The garden parties are usually on Saturday or Sunday afternoon and are child friendly. We also have the occasional karaoke night.
Just chill! From karaoke to charity events and Paka Tuesday; we like offering evening/weekend entertainment, but we are a lodge at the end of the day so your REST is important. More often we have NO events, so you can relax, have a good night sleep, play bawo, and/or enjoy our garden. WE HOPE TO OPEN THE GARDEN AGAIN SOON!

This backpackers, nestled away in Zomba, was much appreciated after long, hard travel through Malawi. We camped on the grounds and just enjoyed the lovely atmosphere of Pakachere's itself.
I came to stay for two nights and wound up staying for four. The location was perfect being just a short walk into town and a couple of hours walk up to the plateau. The food was amazing with good portions served and for a good price.
