Photographer's Note

The Mulanje Massif, also known as Mount Mulanje, is a large inselberg in southern Malawi near the city of Blantyre, rising sharply from the surrounding plains of Chiradzulu, and the tea-growing Mulanje district. It measures approximately 13x16 miles (22x26 kilometres) and has a maximum elevation of 3,002m at its highest point, Sapitwa Peak.

Much of the Massif consists of rolling grassland at elevations of 1800-2200m, intersected by deep forested ravines. It has many individual peaks reaching heights of over 2500m, including Chambe Peak, the West Face of which is the longest rock climb in Africa.

The Mulanje Massif offers great views to the hiker. Here the Chambe Basin with Chambe Peak in the background is visible. There we spend the night before.
