What a place. It might ruin your two wheel car to drive the 7km to the lodge but it's worth it. Situated next to one of the villages that make up Malealea, it's a well equipped, well run lodge with a stunning range of accommodation...More

Thank you for your review. Malealea is located within a community where running water and electricity to homes does not exist. We try to offer basic but comfortable accommodation where electricity is provided by a solar system and therefore air conditioning is not an option....More
