There is lots to do in this quaint little spot due to its location, in the Ntchisi Forest Reserve. You can choose to head out on a lovely short stroll into the forest, or hike for a few hours and take a lovely picnic with you and sit near one of the rivers or waterfalls. Look out for the incredible birdlife around or the gorgeous orchids that continue to pop up along the way. Hard to imagine this is just outside the busy capital city…it is heavenly.

One of the newest jewels to the lodge, the forest cabin is perfect for an intimate and private stay, enjoy it with close friends, you and a loved one, or even the family. Although hidden within the forest it is still close enough to the lodge itself. Enjoy some peace and quietness on your veranda and in the colder months, you can enjoy a roaring fire in the comfort of a communal area.

Want to enjoy the simple pleasures in life in a gorgeous location just outside the capital of the busy Lilongwe? At Ntchisi you can do just that, good food, a healthy climate and surrounded by natures beauty. The lodge uses minimum electricity, and everything is run on solar, including the hot water that is provided. Create your own atmosphere, candlelit dinners, warm roaring fires and the company of your loved ones…the simple things are sometimes just what we need to make memories and experiences.
