Chelinda Lodge is set against a pocket of hagenia woodland and overlooks vast tracts of Nyika National Park's grasslands dotted with large herd of roan, eland and zebra. This forest backdrop provides perfect shelter for an idyllic escape in the highland wilderness of Malawi.
Accommodation at Chelinda consists of eight double-storey log cabins, each with a fireplace for the cool highland nights. The ground floor features an open plan bedroom and lounge, with en-suite bathroom, queen-sized beds, seating area and a veranda. Upstairs there is a viewing area which functions as additional living space and is ideal for children. One of the log cabins is slightly larger, offering ideal accommodation to families.
All the cabins are connected by wooden walkways which are landscaped on the hillside around the lodge. The main building has a convivial dining area around the fireplace, and a quiet lounge which opens onto an outside deck for sundowners.
Activities at Chelinda Lodge revolve around day and night nature drives which explore the hills and evergreen forest of the Nyika Plateau. Nature walks and mountain biking are also very popular.
