At Madidi we know that business travelling is not as glamorous as it looks from the outside, we believe that it is our duty to make our guests as comfortable and relaxed as possible. We like to challenge the conventional approach of bland designs and uncharacteristic set ups in order to fit everybody's taste. We feel that all our guests deserve to come 'home' to a place of comfort, relaxation and inspiring surroundings with the facilities that allow to finish off that report or meet colleagues and the opportunity to unwind and regenerate their energy at the end of the day. Madidi you can expect a non-standard and inspiring set up, our services offer travellers comforts and needs such spacious comfortable rooms, FREE WIFI, flexibility on breakfast and dinner times in beautiful and unique surroundings with personalized service. The 13 animal named rooms all have outside areas & balconies and have an African feel to it. Our menu offers a variety of home made comfort food that is prepared with care and attention and with a focus on using fresh local ingredients. The unique and tranquil pool area, gym & spa are designed to offer for some 'me time' and to spoil oneself. We believe that our attention to detail, design and service will make lasting memories. We believe in operating with our environment and community in mind. Where possible, Madidi promotes and supports local businesses and artist, the lodge is a showcase of local artists and we give preference to local suppliers. Furthermore, we aim to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible by recycling grey water, compost green waste and carefully manage the use of water. Madidi is easily accessible from Kamuzu International Airport and from the main roads leading to Blantyre and Lake Malawi. The Axa Bus and National Bus Company which offer transport throughout Malawi, are on walking distance from the lodge.

Having been to Lilongwe before, I did not expect this trip to be a comfortable holiday, but the staff of Madrid Lodge spoiled us with wonderful service. Of course the pace is a bit slower in this country, and we all know that there are power cuts, water pressure issues and slow
