|Location / Directions
We are 20km from Mangochi and 35km from the Chiponde border, which makes us an ideal stop-off point for those wishing to travel to and from Mozambique.
For those travelling from the Chiponde border, turn right and drive towards Mangochi, you will see the sign for Chowe Village after 35km. Afterwards, look out for Namizimu signposted on the right.
For those travelling from Mangochi, take the road east over the bridge, crossing the
Shire River, heading towards Mozambique. After a few km along
the flat valley plain, the road climbs up the steep hill to
Chowe Village. A hundred metres beyond the village sign,
Namizimu is signposted on the left.
The final approach consists of 1.5km of steep dirt track up to the main retreat buildings.
Alternative parking in the village and porters can be arranged for those with low clearance vehicles. Let us know how you plan to arrive and we can offer advice and have help on hand.
