The Nyika Plateau- Malawi’s answer to Switzerland, with breathtaking grassy vistas, summer carpets of alpine flowers and more zebras than you can shake a stick at.
Rooms at Chelinda Lodge
In keeping with their highland setting, the eight cosy log cabins at Chelinda Lodge owe more to alpine chalets than African safari camps. Made of pine and stone, they have fireplaces for the cooler winter nights and floor to ceiling windows to admire the views.
Food and facilities
If you need marble swimming pools and an on site gym, stop reading now. The food is homely and the main building is cosy rather than glitzy. However, this is Malawi, the warm heart of Africa. Service comes with a huge smile, and outdoorsy guests will succumb to the lodge’s wholesome appeal.
Activities at Chelinda Lodge
Day and night game drives (and with such stunning views, these are as much about the landscape as the wildlife), fly fishing, mountain biking, walking and birding.
