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.
