Welcome to Zomba


Zomba Plateau is an undulating, forested plateau rising from the eastern Rift above the town. The plateau is heavily planted with pines, but there are many easily accessible montane forests around with patches of Afromontaine forest, interspersed with grassland, pine plantations and, further down, some fine Brachystegia woodland. Zomba itself has retained some of its old charm as the former colonial capital of Malawi.

Information & Facts

English is the official language, but Chichewa is more commonly spoken.

The official currency is the Malawi Kwacha (MWK), which is divided into 100 tambalas. Travellers cheques and foreign currencies are accepted by banks, authorised hotels and other institutions in the main town centres; bureaux de change are also available. The US dollar is the easiest currency to exchange. Credit cards are not widely accepted and ATMs are scarce and should not be relied upon. Exchanging currency on the black market is not recommended.
