Lilongwe

3.9
The capital city of Malawi and its largest, Lilongwe serves as an important center of economy and transportation for the area.

Stroll through the markets filled with local produce, in an ambience of African music and dancing. A trip to Lilongwe wouldn't be complete without a visit to its wildlife sanctuary.
