  • Unfortunately, sights and monuments in Malawi are not well cared for. This one is an exception. Easy to visit, just of the main road (M3), with free parking. An important tribute for brave Malawian.  more »
  • Our guide shared some history regarding this site but I feel there is more history as this is an exceptional monument.  more »
