Ntchisi Forest Lodge is a remote eco-lodge in a historial building in a rainforest location with the most stunning view in Malawi. Here you can experience the real Africa, either on one of our many rainforest or mountain hikes, or you can participate in some of our cultural activities in remote rural villages still untouched by tourism. We also arrange volunteering stays, on which you can spend a few days or weeks delving a bit deeper into Malawian culture and feel that you give something back as part of your holiday. The lodge runs enterily on renewable energy and we grow most of our own herbs and vegetables. You can stay in one of the 5 lodge rooms, our newly build Forest Cabin or stay in one of our two luxury tents. Here you can experience the real Africa in comfortable and safe surroundings and with a good conscience.

I came with a few friends and we stayed for 2 nights doing the cultural package. It was an incredible cultural experience that was supplemented by some beautiful hiking during our free time. The lodge staff were very friendly, and the food was delicious! I would recommend

Dear Ken and Di, Thank you very much for your positive feedback! We know you had a hectic trip and wanted some quietness. We are very glad that you found that at our lodge. As many visitors do. Hopefully you were refreshed enough to cope with the goodbye party at the Lake. We hope to see you back some day at the lodge! Warm regards, Rob & Irene on behalf of the Ntchisi Forest Lodge team.

Me and my wife rented one of the 2 safari tents which is a spacious, clean beautiful way to sleep in the forest. It would be great though if these tents get their own shower en toilet facility closer by, but the resent situation is beautiful enough. Breakfast was great, dinner

Dear Camilio, thank you for your kind words and all the compliments of the food! We enjoyed your stay at the lodge as well and appreciated the nice conversations and exchange of information and ideas. We hope to see you and Erine back at the lodge. We don't know if the tents will have a private shower and toilet by then but we certainly take the suggestion in consideration. Rob & Irene on behalf of the Ntchisi Forest Lodge team

Dear Ken, Thank you so much for your kind words! The guests of Rhythms of the Rainforest festival had very different backgrounds, ages and interests, all did go along very well. But off course music unites. We noticed that you had a really good time and enjoyed every minute of it. So did we! We hope to see you again. Warm regards, Rob & Irene
