What To Do

Livingstonia has a fascinating history and a visit to The Stone House Museum is essential. We also recommend the local coffee shop – lovely locally grown coffee, homemade scones and even homemade ice cream! Locally produced honey and banana jam are also on sale here and all proceeds from the Coffee Shop help the Orphan Care Programme in the area.

The Woodcarver’s Craft Shop is ideal for gifts and souvenirs – all made locally using traditional methods.

The mission town has historic links with Scotland through the Scottish Missionaries who built it and there is a “Scottishness” to the architecture. The Church has an impressive stained glass window featuring David Livingstone – Dr Livingstone never made it to this area (although he got as far as Chitimba) and the town was named as a tribute to him and his contribution to the lives of the people of Nyasaland (Malawi). A stroll around the town reveals that Scottish flavour mingled with the friendliness of the local people. There is a small market and a few shops selling typical local produce.

The famous Manchewe Falls are a modest walk from the Lodges and are truly spectacular. Do take care near the edge – these are the highest waterfalls in Malawi!

Feeling active? Local guides can provide walks to the famous Water Source or up Chombe Mountain: wherever you go, the scenery is fantastic and the local people are incredibly friendly.
