  • Unfortunately, sights and monuments in Malawi are not well cared for. This one is an exception. Easy to visit, just of the main road (M3), with free parking. An important tribute for brave Malawian.  more »
  • Our guide shared some history regarding this site but I feel there is more history as this is an exceptional monument.  more »
  • The premises is well maintained and situated just outside a military base. As I love history and especially historic war graveyards, this visit was a bucket item for me.  more »
