I just wanted take a quick break and the Ntchisi Forest was exactly the place for the purpose. I enjoyed everything of the lodge; fresh air and delicious iced tea in the garden, champagne at the Sunset Rock, wine over bonfire, excellent meals, and gorgeous hi-tea served as part of the package of the Mothers Day weekend. Above all, the hospitality of Rob, Irene and their team was something that we can rarely experience in other places. I booked an Ensuite Delux room, but was offered a room of the former owner. I am looking forward to staying in other rooms in the lodge. Another things I am looking forward to are longer walk in the forest with the knowledgeable guide Eston, and clearer view from the forest towards the Lake Malawi, which I missed due to the dust caused by the dry season.
- 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
