Nestled in the highlands of Nyika National Park, Chelinda Lodge is an exclusive 16-bedded classic camp that lies against the magnificent backdrop of towering pine trees. Situated high on the plateau, the 8 luxuriously appointed pine chalets offer panoramic views of woodland patches, rolling plains and montane grasslands (often dotted with herds of eland, zebra, roan antelope and reedbuck).
Pure luxury awaits guests at the rustic yet elegant lodge. Cabins are constructed of stone and pine, each is fitted with an en-suite bathroom, fireplace, an upstairs seating area and strategically placed viewing deck. Staff members pride themselves on extending the greatest care and service to guests. Meals can be enjoyed in the spacious main lounge or on the grand outdoor deck that overlooks the grasslands.
Guided walks, mountain biking, game drives, fly fishing and the Livingstonia Trail are some of the activities on offer. Guests can also opt to visit a nearby school and meet members of the local community. Nyika is considered one of Africa’s most iconic wilderness areas and the park was featured extensively in Lauren van der Post’s Venture to the Interior. The rolling plains of the Nyika Plateau are distinct and reminiscent of the Scottish highlands, and the park is often heralded as one of the continent’s most unique areas of wilderness, that is unlike any other location in Africa.
