I spent a brief weekend-stay at Ntchisi Forest Lodge during my time in Malawi in May 2017. Goal of my weekend plan was to do some interesting and exciting hiking in Ntchisi Forest. My stay at Ntchisi Forest Lodge did not dissappoint me the least....More

Thansk for your great review!
We are glad you enjoyed the hiking. An easy hike can well be done in one day, but to get a glimpse of both the miombo and the rainforest it is better to stay at least one night over. It...More
Great staff, wonderful food. Nice views, good hiking trails. The dining is shared family style with other guests. There isn't wifi or much cell service, so it's a nice break from our digital hectic life.
The road to the lodge is not paved, but passable...More

Dear Kim & Jeremy and Amaya,

Nice that you enjoyed our food; we believe that the way to the heart goes via the stomach...More

Thanks for your feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed the lodge, the beautiful scenery and the friendly staff. We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with our managers during your stay and want to apologise for that. Since we are a small...More
The place is beautiful and it's the only tourist-appropriate place to stay near Ntchisi Forest. It's one of the more upscale lodges in Malawi, and the prices reflect American pricing more than local pricing. The food is great. Angelina, our host, was fantastic.More

Thanks for you review, we always appreciate the feedback from our guests. The isolated spot where the Forest Lodge is located has many advantages, especially the quietness from the forest and the great views over Lake Malawi. We serve homemade Western style food...More
