Pakachere has different kinds of facilities for overnight guests. But even when you are not sleeping at Pakachere, you are still welcome to use of our facilities!

Bar & Restaurant


Our bar and restaurant are open every day to everyone from 7AM with last orders at 8:15PM. You can take time to relax in our newly refurbished lounge area, chat with friends in one of our summer huts, read a book, have a drink & some good food. Sometimes we dance until the early hours, we organise a pub quiz, and we have Paka Tuesdays with ‘informal’ yoga (6:30PM; informal because we just get together and share our moves and poses)

Laundry service


Pakachere offers a laundry service 7 days a week. Make sure you bring your laundry in the morning (before 11 am). Depending on the weather it will be ready by the end of the day!


  • Half bag 800 MWK

Shower & towel


Feeling sweaty after one of our trips? Or just need to freshen up? Our high pressure geyser will give you a nice hot shower (if we have power; we hope to get solar boilers in 2018).


  • Overnight guests: Free
  • Non-sleeping guest shower 500 MWK
  • Need a towel as well? Ask one at the bar! (add 500 MWK)



Pakachere has several big lockers where you can keep your luggage safe during trips or a day out in the field. We offer free locks, ask for one at the bar (1000 MWK deposit).

Free Wifi


Our free Wifi is open for all residents who spend the night at Paka from 5PM untl 5AM. Ask the password at the bar, and join our Wifi in the garden or the creative centre! If you want to use wifi outside the free hours, you can buy Globe Hotspot vouchers at the bar (30 mins/MWK 350 – 60 mins/MWK 600). We do depend on power for the router to work, so if there is no electricity, there is no Wifi… pepani!
