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 was even greater, it was a very well, nice, fresh 3 course dinner where I like to say that it also was very healthy and out-ranged a lot of good restaurants in Lilongwe on originality and use of ingredients. I would love to state that I would go there also only for a dinner.
The surroundings are beautiful and the rain-forest is a surreal spot of beauty and tranquility, if you go, go for 2 days and 2 nights at least. You can walk nice walks and the garden is a spot where you can relax, read or spot birds. We also where friendly invited to visited the forest cottage which is a beautiful architectural piece of art.
Also Rob, Irene and the Ntchisi Forest Lodge team are very professional and pleasant hosts. All the compliments to them. I hope we can visit the lodge soon again.
- 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
