Mount Mulanje is a dramatic towering slab of a mountain that lies to the east of Blantyre, and Cycle Malawi can take you there. Combining hiking with cycling can offer you more chances to discover remote parts of Malawi that you simply cannot cycle up! There are around six potential routes to follow up Mount Mulanje, with clearly marked paths, well maintained huts and plenty of rest stops on the way. Once you’ve conquered the peaks of Mulanje, head out on the Satemwa Bikes & Tea Tour to discover the lush tea plantations, and beautiful scenery as you cycle down the winding lanes of the estate. To finish off, you can head to Huntingdon House for lunch, and even visit the factory to taste a sample of the many teas produced at Satemwa.
