Mangoes in Malawi


A key fruit in Malawi is the mango. Both cultivated and wild, mango trees are found throughout Malawi, which has the perfect climate to grow.

Mango season in Malawi starts around October and finishes in January (depending on when the rains come, the season has started as late as December).

Many different types of mango grow in Malawi, from the small, sweet mangoes in Karonga, to the larger and more mellow-flavoured mangoes that grow along the central Lake Malawi shore around Nkhata Bay and Chintheche. In fact, visit Sambani Lodge around this time and the staff will collect and serve you mangos whenever requested!!

A word of warning though - eating too much of this sweet fruit can give you a pretty serious case of 'traveller's tummy'!
