What guests do we welcome


All our rooms are designed with the idea that at least two people can occupy them. Single guests are more than welcome and receive a discount on the total room price. This works out that as a single guest you pay 20 dollars on top of the prices per person per night that people pay for sharing.


Just some time off in the weekend or traveling through Malawi; Ntchisi Forest Lodge is the perfect getaway to spend some time with your partner. There is plenty of time to relax, do activities and enjoy our lovely food. Depending on your mood spent some time in one of our en-suite rooms in the lodge or take a more adventurous approach and stay in a luxury tent or indulge yourself at the Forest Cabin.


We welcome families and their children. In the lodge the Ensuite Plus and Delux can be used for families. The Forest Cabin is designed with a family set-up in mind. Prices for children (including breakfast and dinner) in the lodge are:

0-2 years: free of charge | 2-11 years: 30 dollars per child | 11-16 years: 50 dollars per child

Business people

Despite the fact we are operating in a remote area we do have an Internet connection at the lodge (keep in mind that connection times are a bit slower than in Lilongwe). Our Ensuite rooms also have a desk where you can work on and are therefore best suited to our business guests.


We get many honeymooners at the lodge. You can expect a perfect setting for a peaceful stay, a bottle of champagne on your room,  romantic candle light dinners and on cold nights roaring log fires to keep both of you warm.
