Njobvu Cultural Village Lodge is a cooperative initiative of several villages near Ulongwe, Balaka District in Malawi. It started around 2002 as a way of generating income and of educating the local people about the importance of conserving Liwonde National Park's resources for tourism purposes.
Njobvu Cultural Village Lodge is run by and employs local villagers and is an important source of revenue for the community. This income reduces the need to poach within Liwonde National Park. Benefiting from park tourism encourages communities to conserve their valuable natural and cultural resources. A percentage of the funds are used to support a nursery school and in the future to support village elderly.
Visitors of the lodge experience the real Malawian life, by sleeping in the traditional mud brick hut in the village and meeting the villagers and their traditions.
