We loved our time at Ntchisi Forest Lodge! We stayed two nights in the luxury tents which were in fact a perfect blend of luxury and yet set right in the forest which was a very peaceful, relaxed, adventurous environment. The food was also fantastic!...More

We stayed at the Forest Lodge as our first stay in Malawi on a trip organised by the Responsible Safari Company. The lodge is quite high so it is not too hot and makes an ideal introduction to the country. The meals in the lodge...More

Dear fhdCornwall, thanks for your nice words and recommendation. Especially in the warmer months it is a real treat to visit us at 1400 meters altitude. When it is getting a bit colder (July and August) it is good to know we have a fireplace...More

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.
