The Lodge is ideal for time away. Even a 1-night visit felt completely rejuvenating, although I would recommend staying at least 2 nights to feel totally relaxed and to take advantage of the many walks/hikes, the fireplace in the lounge, and the opportunity to just do nothing. We stayed in the Deluxe Double, but would be just as happy in any of the other rooms or the gorgeous glass 'Tree House.' The food was plentiful and delicious. We appreciated being able to bring our own wine & not pay outrageous corkage fees. All of the staff were genuinely gracious. Eston, the local guide, is an incredible resource; his knowledge of the forest and the history of the area is invaluable. We can't wait to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
