The plateau is actually a large flat mountaintop, which is criss-crossed by streams, tumbling waterfalls and still lakes.  At 1,800 metres high, Zomba has a unique high altitude tropical micro-climate and the views from the top are magnificent, once described as ‘the best in the British Empire’. Wildlife here includes leopard, although sightings are rare.
