Chelinda Camp is now run by Wilderness Safaris. Chelinda is in the heart of the beautiful and unique Nyika Plateau, a montane grassland rising to 8000 ft / 2400 m in north Malawi. Made famous by Laurens van der Post in his Venture to the Interior, the plateau is a carpet of orchids in season and home to zebra, countless antelope (including the massive Eland), hyena, leopards and elephant; to say nothing of the hundreds of different bird species.
Accommodation is currently of two sorts. There are four chalets each with two double bedrooms, a dining area, small kitchen and a bathroom with bath and shower. Additionally, facing a clear water dam, are six twin bedded en suite rooms. There’s a restaurant and bar
Activities include game drives, walking, mountain biking, birding and fly fishing for trout. The famous horse riding safaris are planned to be re-introduced.
Chelinda Lodge, with its beautiful pine chalets, also re-opened in 2010. Refurbishments include enlarged windows, more spacious balconies, complete re-furnishing of the rooms and public areas, and a new sauna.
Once again, a visit to Malawi will not be complete without a visit to Nyika.
