Check Rates

Zomba Forest Lodge is a unique small guesthouse nestled amongst the forests of Zomba Plateau. Formerly a forestry commissioner's house the lodge is now a haven for people in search of peace and harmony surrounded by nature. Hiking and bird watching across the plateau and some of the best food in Malawi sitting around the open fire at the end of an energetic day will surely be one of your best Malawian memories. Open fire and all eating together create a homely feel and the food is simply delicious!

Note that all rooms at Zomba Forest Lodge are ensuite.

The gardens are looking lush and colourful and a real treat to walk around and the birds continue to love it.

Combine your stay with exploring Zomba Plateau and enjoying Horse Riding

A community day trip to one of the villages in Zomba can be organised upon request.
