Ntchisi Forest Lodge , Ntchisi Forest Reserve
Imagine, waking up in complete silence. You get up and find yourself running or spotting birds in one of the last indigenous rainforests of Malawi. When you get back to the lodge you indulge yourself in an extensive breakfast with homemade muesli, bread, jams and marmelades.
Time for some relaxation at the khonde where - on a bright day - you have some spectacular views on the Lake of Stars. You play some games and find yourself ready for another activity. Together with our guide Eston you are ready for one of our easy or more strenuous trails, or you walk to the village and visit local shops, the chief and drink a cup of tea. You can also prepare your own local lunch dish here or have lunch at the lodge.
When the sun is about to set you will take your sundowner to sunset rock to stretch your legs and enjoy the scenery. After refreshing yourself in either an ensuite room, a luxury tent or the forest cabin it’s time for dinner. You will enjoy a candlelit homemade three course dinner – appreciated by our guests as one of the best in Malawi. After some relaxation in front of a log fire in our living room and some drinks from our Rainforest bar it’s time to go to bed. Silence sets in and your dreams take over…it’s time for another memorable day!
Ntchisi Forest Lodge sits on the foot of one of the last remaining indigenous rainforests in an isolated spot near Lilongwe, Malawi’s capital. Experience the warm-hearted hospitality of a part of rural Malawi where tourists are still a rarity, and enjoy relaxing and walking in the beautiful scenery.
