We stayed at the Forest Lodge as our first stay in Malawi on a trip organised by the Responsible Safari Company. The lodge is quite high so it is not too hot and makes an ideal introduction to the country. The meals in the lodge...More

Dear fhdCornwall, thanks for your nice words and recommendation. Especially in the warmer months it is a real treat to visit us at 1400 meters altitude. When it is getting a bit colder (July and August) it is good to know we have a fireplace...More

We had a great time at Ntchisi Forest Lodge. We stayed for 2 nights in the Forest Cabin, a little glass cabin in the forest close to the lodge. We did a few hikes which are well marked. But the highlight was the hike we...More

Dear Martin, thank you for your positive words! We recently cleared the trails and refreshed the signs in the Forest. Hopefully a lot more people realise that Ntchisi Forest is the last remaining afromontane rainforest in the South of Africa (not only of Malawi) and...More

Everything about our stay at Ntchisi was fantastic! We could only stay for one night but would have stayed for the whole of Christmas if we hadn't made other plans already! The forest is absolutely spectacular and we could have spent weeks walking around it...More

Dear Rob, It’s a pity you couldn’t stay longer. But of course you are always welcome at the lodge. We are sure there is a lot more to explore in the forest. No leopards (although…) but other beautiful flora and fauna. We were very happy...More
