Lilongwe is the main entry point for international flights arriving in Malawi and it is surprisingly 'green', to the extent that sometimes you wouldn't guess you were in a commercial hub for all the trees and grassy areas.

 
Lilongwe became Malawi’s capital in 1975, a role previously filled by Zomba.
 
Lilongwe arts and crafts
The Old Town (to the South) is distinct and separate from the new Capital City (to the north). While the former has all the appearance of a traditional African settlement, the City has much in common with other twentieth century urban developments around the world. Its gleaming modern buildings in their spacious garden-like settings, contrasts with the hustle and bustle of Old Town. Both of these different parts of the town are worth touring. The modern shops of the City are complemented by the exciting street and walled markets of Old Town. Lilongwe’s range of services and facilities is unsurpassed in Malawi except, possibly, in Blantyre.

The State House is now the seat of parliament and the Lilongwe Nature Sanctuary lies between the Old and New towns. Within the Sanctuary is the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre - a new and exciting 'People and Wildlife' animal rescue and education facility.

From Lilongwe you can easily get to Cape Maclear, Lake Malawi National Park & Salima.
