Underwhelming and lackadaisical could be said of a few of my prior capitals on that there continent. Examples that springbourne to mind are Porto Novo (Benin), Lome (Togo) and Kampala (Uganda). In Malawi, I also stayed at Mufasa Eco Lodge in Monkey Bay, as well as eating fish by Lake Malawi and backpacking at Cape Maclear and Dedza.

I originally was only going to backpack the sights of Lilongwe on a day trip but eventually decided on a night here. Backpacking in the capital city of Malawi will hardly be a highlight from this humungous continent but I still got to see a bit of this capital, which houses just under 1 million people.

I’ve skipped a fair few African capital cities down the years. By that I mean never even went to them yet was in their country. I byballed Mbabane (Eswatini), Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania),  Kinshasa (The Democratic Republic of Congo), Rabat (Morocco), Lusaka (Zambia), Harare (Zimbabwe), Gitega (Burundi) and Maputo (The Bake). Finally I rocked up to backpack Lilongwe which I nicknamed “The Long Way”. I stayed in a textbook backpackers hostel here. Mabuya is definitely a decent spot.

Mabuya Backpackers Hostel in Lilongwe was only $12 US Dollars a night for a dorm bed.

I was top bunk loyal in an 8 bed dorm where some foreign freak coughed spluttered and farted all night as a COVID loyal freak.
