Ntchisi Forest Lodge sits on the escarpment of the East African Rift Valley in some of Malawi's last remaining indigenous rainforest in an isolated spot near Lilongwe, Malawi's capital. Guests can relax whilst enjoying stunning mountain and Lake views, experience the warm-hearted hospitality of a part of rural Malawi where tourists are still a rarity, and enjoy walking or mountain biking in the beautiful scenery.
Rare birds and beautiful orchids are abundant and there's always a strong possibility that you'll see samango monkeys, baboons, antelope and hyenas near the lodge. We serve a delicious dinner of local specialities and international dishes, which can be followed by a few drinks in our 'rainforest bar'.
The lodge itself is an historical colonial building dating from 1914 (making it one of Malawi's oldest buildings) so it is ideal for cosy evenings relaxing by a roaring log fire and soaking up the old-world charm.
We at Ntchisi Forest Lodge take our social and environmental responsibilities very seriously. The lodge is operated purely on renewable sources of energy and you will get a sense of our commitment to the environment in the delicious home-grown food and by hiking and biking in the wonderful surrounding nature.
