We are approximately a two and a half hour drive up the M1 from Mzuzu or, if coming from the North, it’s two hours from the Tanzania border. You arrive at Chitimba and this is where your Livingstonia adventure really begins, at the foot of the amazing Girodi Road. From Chitimba on the lakeside it’s a slightly scary, always exhilarating drive up the Girodi – 21 hairpin bends later you’re in Livingstonia and enjoying the best hospitality that “the warm heart of Africa” has to offer. Some of our guests have their own vehicle (good ground clearance is essential); others choose to walk or cycle up; or we can arrange transport in a trusty Landcruiser!

Buses travel regularly between Mzuzuz and Koronga and will drop you off at Chitimba. Guides are available to lead you up the hill (a two and a half hour strenuous walk) but there are often vehicles and it’s pretty safe to hitch a lift in a passing pick up.
