Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
Ntchisi Forest Lodge is committed to ensuring the local community benefit from tourism and supporting the local economy is an important part of a stay at the lodge. Local community members are encouraged to produce goods that they can sell to visitors and nearly all the produce served at the lodge is bought from local suppliers, for example the home-made fig jam at breakfast. The lodge has set up Ntchisi Forest Lodge Community Trust, which is a committee of people from the locals who propose development projects in the hope that slowly tourism can bring prosperity to the local community. They are keen to push tourism in the area and ensure the community as a whole benefits from ecotourism activities.
