Named after Dr. Livingstone's birthplace in Scotland, the commercial and industrial city of Blantyre is in a pretty setting in southern Malawi. Be sure to visit the Church of St. Michael's and All Angels (built in 1891) and the National Museum (historical displays), then drive up Soche Hill for an impressive view. The Blantyre area can easily be seen in about six hours, but several nights could be spent there if trips are made to Mount Mulanje, Lengwe National Park, the Zomba Plateau or the Michiru Mountain Conservation Area, which has picnic areas and nature trails. 145 mi/235 km southeast of Lilongwe.
