Dedza Town

We recommend that you visit Dedza Town which is located 4Km away from the pottery and lodge and is a charming and vibrant forestry town. If you don't have your own car, our reception staff can assist you with finding transport.

At an altitude of 1500 metres and located at the foot of Dedza Mountain, the town is the highest in Malawi and is only a five minute drive from the main M1 road. Dedza is famous for its old and new buildings  and the lively fresh vegetable markets. In particular, the potatoes and the "chiwaya" chips (street food) are some of the best in Malawi.
