From the staff to the scenery to the food, everything is perfect. And this is coming from someone who had a long-term stay at the lodge — a total of 3 weeks.” (Jenna, TripAdvisor)
The lodge has changed it set-up to provide more space for physical distancing. ‘Paka’ now has 2 big safari tents outdoors for people who rather not share with strangers. The big dorm will have no more than 5 guests (unless you travel in a group) and beds will be on rotation to give the bedding time to air. We aim to have beds and rooms empty for at least 24 hours after every guest. We provide sanitiser and disinfect surfaces in public spaces a couple of times per day.
Pakachere won the award for Best Hostel in Malawi 2020 (Hostelworld) and scores an average of 8.7 on booking.com. “The location is great, with a large garden space and lots of different comfortable common areas. The food was good, and the staff was wonderful!” (Booking.com).
