Hotels and lodgingEdit

Nthcisi Forest Lodge is in a remote area in Ntchisi Forest Reserve and provides mid-range accommodation and some of the best food in Malawi. It is nicely decorated and, though comfortable with nice beds and a great open fireplace, is run as a bush lodge without electricity. Hot water is provided through solar heaters, and the lodge grows a lot of its own food in the kitchen gardens. It lies inside the forest reserve and has a lot of cool activities both in the forest and in nearby villages untouched by mass tourism.

AttractionsEdit

Ntchisi Forest Reserve is a stunning place not far from Lilongwe (about two hours north-east). It covers Ntchisi Mountain, which provides excellent hiking on marked trails through some of the last remaining rainforest in southern Africa. The forest really is truly amazing, and many viewpoints give you views over the Rift Valley escarpment. On clear days you can see to the other end of the country and across Lake Malawi to Mozambique's mountains.
