Take a step back and get in touch with nature in a lodge surrounded by verdant forest and exotic wildlife

Zomba Forest Lodge is a secluded property set in 20 acres of mixed woodland, far away from the stresses of modern life. It is located on the Zomba Plateau, Malawi. It has a limited electricity supply so, you can rekindle your connection to nature by romantic candle-light.

The accommodation comprises of four rooms, and although small and compact they have outstanding views. All the rooms are equipped with an en-suite. Surrounding the lodge are verdant gardens, which are the ideal place to sit and enjoy a drink or two. Concerning cuisine, there is a set menu which is filled with fresh produce and can be adapted to special dietary requirements. Tom and Petal are the friendly hosts of the lodge and more than happy to advise on the best places to visit with their wealth of knowledge of the local area. Their passion for their surroundings is evident because they have set up a small tree planting conservation project to combat the problem of deforestation.

Staying at the lodge there are some amazing wildlife opportunities; if you’re lucky you might spot some rare birds, including the white winged apalis and the double-coloured forest sunbird. There are many hiking trails starting from the lodge, some of which take you up onto the plateau for some stunning panoramic views. Zomba Forest Lodge can also arrange visits to the local school and the church or even a traditional cooking lesson. In addition, in the area we recommend taking a trip to Chikala Pillars or if you’re an avid adventurer a horse ride up on to the plateau is a must do.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
