          We were returning to Malawi after +25 years, with our daughter who was in Malawi for her first time. Danforth did not exist then, and we were delighted when Safari Consultants booked this for us. We stayed three nights, and enjoyed the host Howard's company...More

          Hi, I am staying here in November and just wondering, although our accommodation is already paid for, can we pay for extras with visa credit card or is it best to bring cash and if so which currency is best? Also, are towels for swimming and bathroom supplied?! Thanks Sue
