We prefer Malawian kwachas, but you can also pay in dollars ($; large denominations, crisp notes printed after 2009).

Only in emergencies we accept other currencies and it has to be approved by management in advance. Please ask at reception when you check-in if you want to pay in pounds (£), euros (€) or rand (ZAR).
