Zomba Forest Lodge
Zomba Forest Lodge
Zomba Forest Lodge is a cosy and intimate guest house nestled in 20 acres of mixed woodland. A perfect forest retreat where relaxation is guaranteed.
The house sits in 20 acres of stunning gardens and mixed woodland, varying from indigenous rainforest in the valley by the stream, to pine on the slopes and giant eucalyptus trees overhanging the garden. There are 3.5km on nature trails and a huge variety of birds, including the rare yellow-throated and White-winged apalis, Bertram’s weaver and the double-coloured forest sunbird feeding from the flowers mere inches from the veranda, a real treat for the eyes.
Completely off-grid and with no electricity, Zomba Forest Lodge is an ideal place to hide away, to take it slow, to sit back and relax, away from the pressures of ‘real life’! Guests have indeed found that switching off is in fact a luxury in a day in age when being connected is seemed to be so important – Come and try it out.
You can step it up and go walking on one of the many trails around the lodge or on the Plateau or, you can simply lie back in the hammock and enjoy the bird song, the butterflies and a good book.
However, Zomba Forest Lodge isn’t all about relaxing and hiking, it is also about enjoying great food. At ZFL, guests will enjoy some of the best home-cooked food available in Malawi.
ZFL is much more than a lodge, it is not a hotel: guests are treated like friends in their home and the owners Tom and Petal will make sure that you are well looked after. The lodge does not pretend to offer 5 star accommodation, it is a forest retreat – however you will enjoy a 5 star experience.
