Zomba Forest Lodge

Zomba Forest Lodge has been a rest house/lodge for the past 30 years or so but it is now not just a lodge, it is our home. It is not just a business, it is a lifestyle we choose. If you would like to visit us, we will treat you like friends, guests to our house so please do not expect anything too formal!

The atmosphere  here is intimate, cosy and friendly. We want to make sure that you have a great time, whatever you wish to do, whether that is hiking all day or spending a hard day relaxing listening to the sounds of the forest.

As 2021 begins, the shadow of Covid-19 continues to loom over us and so we want to assure our guests that we will continue to follow the health and safety guidelines for as long as we need to.

On the plus side, our Green Season rates are BACK

.... but we are having to adjust them due to the increase in the price of goods :)

AND we are offering extra discounts for social bubble bookings and mid-week bookings, as well as the possibility of 'ZFL Lite' rates for mid-week bookings only (Monday to Thursday)


The Lodge

Zomba Forest Lodge has 4 lovely en-suite bedrooms, and like everything else in the house, they are small but perfectly formed. Each one is simple but stylish and tastefully decorated.

Some impressions





As much or as little as you want...

Zomba was the old capital of Malawi (it even once won the prize for being the prettiest capital in British Colonial Africa) and although it has lost some of its grandeur, it really is a pleasure to explore.  And Zomba Plateau is literally right on its doorstep so there is plenty to do around here.

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it is not.

Dr Seuss - The Lorax

Due to the increase in population and the need for woodfuel for cooking and heating, Malawi has lost 85% of its trees in the last 20 years, and as the graph shows: at current rates of population growth and deforestation, by 2025 the country will no longer have enough biomass to sustain the population.
