Nestled in the highlands of Nyika National Park, Chelinda Lodge is a 16-bedded exclusive classic camp that lies against a magnificent backdrop of towering pine trees. Situated high on the plateau, the eight luxuriously appointed chalets offer panoramic views of woodland patches, rolling plains and montane grasslands (often dotted with herds of antelope).
The cabin styled chalets are constructed of stone and pine, and each is fitted with an en-suite bathroom, fireplace, an upstairs seating area and a viewing deck. Meals can be enjoyed in the spacious main lounge or on the grand outdoor deck that overlooks the grasslands.
Nyika National Park is one of Malawi’s most scenic and spectacular wilderness areas. It boasts an incredible mixture of scenery and landscapes – pristine brachystegia woodlands, mature mountain forest patches, crystal clear running streams and miles and miles of open rolling grasslands.
Leopard sightings are common on the plateau as well as sightings of Burchell’s zebra, roan antelope, reedbuck, eland, bushbuck, warthog, bush pig, spotted hyena, side-striped jackal and serval. Birdlife is prolific with over 400 species inhabiting the plateau. The park is also one of the best places to see leopard in Malawi. Activities include day and night game drives, guided walks, mountain biking, the Livingstonia Trail, the Sangwala Trail and seasonal fly fishing. Guests can also visit a nearby school during their stay.
Chelinda Lodge is run by Central African Wilderness Safaris (CAWS).
