Pub quiz
trivia night

We organise  quiz nights every 2 months. Dr Mike makes 6 rounds of fairly difficult questions. Usually with a picture round, entertainment, sports, science & nature, and pot luck. It starts at 7PM and finishes around 10PM. Teams of 5 people (MWK 2,000 per team). The winning team gets a round of drinks.


Yoga and Pilates

Yoga is good for mind & body. Sometimes we organise low-budget no-frills yoga events in a weekend. We are looking for a yoga teacher to teach classes on Tuesdays and in the weekends. We occasionally have Pilates classes if there is a teacher available. 

dance workshop

Pakachere can organise all kinds of experiences; from hikes to home visits, workshops, golf classes, historical walks and more. Just ask!

DJs playing at Paka

We love music and we love to dance. Sometimes we invite DJs to play till late. In the dry season we organise garden parties with live music,
food and drinks. We also have the occasional karaoke night. Every year in May we organise Zomba City Festival – not to be missed!


Carlos chilling
and relax

Just chill! From live music to Paka Tuesday; we like offering entertainment, but we are a lodge so your REST is important. More often we have NO events, so you can relax, have a good night sleep, play bawo, and/or enjoy our garden. The garden is spacious enough for physical distancing.


Make your own filled chocolates, coffee/tea, bring home a box of your creations.

Minimum of 10 people, 48hr advance booking.

Mk 15,000 per person
