I spent an amazing six nights at Baobab backpackers lodge. It definitely felt like home and I was genuinely sad to leave. Aron (the owner) made sure I had everything I needed, recommended places to go and organised a return private taxi service (at a very reasonable rate) for me to go hiking at Michiru Nature Sanctuary (highly recommend!).
His staff Tiyamike and Abdulrahim were very helpful and great people to chat to about Blantyre and advice for getting around on your own, which I often like to do. There are also two lovely dogs at the property, Auber and Peter who are the sweetest pets. I'm a cat person but those dogs are just adorable. There is so much lovely green space on the property and I enjoyed having breakfast and yoga practice outside. I love that you can cook your own meals and the market is just a 30 min walk away. There's also food and drink available for purchase if you don't feel like cooking.
There's no doubt in my mind that I'll be staying here when next I return to Blantyre. Thanks for a great experience!
