Chilema trees are found in Malaosa, in the Zomba District of Malawi. It is a tree that amazes and draws people from around Malawi and around the world. It is a tree that provokes more questions than there are answers for. For instance, can it be natural? Is it a creature of God? Or is it man made? What really happened for it to look the way it does? Nobody is certain. Very few people visit Malawi without visiting the Chilema tree – it is what beautifies our mother Malawi.
