Zomba Forest Lodge
Ranked #1 of 10 Speciality Lodging in Zomba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2011

Our second visit to the Lodge confirmed this as one of our favourite Malawian desinations. The accommodation is within an old colonial-style house set in a beautiful garden on the outer slopes of the mountain. Yes, the access road is a bit rough but still passable in a saloon car in the dry season and well worth the effort. The hospitality is warm with a very welcoming owner and ample supplies of tea and coffee. The rooms are quite adequate with en-suite facilites and a comfortable bed. The sitting room, lit by oil lamps (no electricity in the house) and heated by a large log fire makes a very pleasant focus for an evening of conversation with the other guests (max 8 in all). Food is superb, prepared and presented by an old-style cook and eaten around a large communal table. All together an excellent stay

Room Tip: The front room adjacent to the sitting room has always been good to us.
