I've stayed at Heuglins several times, each time for 2-3 weeks. The service is great, and the rooms are very clean. Additionally, the food is delicious - breakfast is hearty and dinners are good. The staff are very friendly and helpful- after all of my trips, I"m sorry to say goodbye to them.

Stayed here for a week. Felt like home. Fiona and her team are awesome. They make you feel comfortable. Fiona is very knowledable about Malawi and gives advice /tips. Food was good. The ambience in the lodge is good and loved the birds around.

I've now stayed at Heuglin's for nearly a month all told, and I would go back in a heartbeat. Fiona, Sungeni, Jane, Kezias, and the rest of the team made me feel absolutely at home...which was deeply appreciated, given how far from my wife and kids I actually was. My colleagues and I have likened staying at Heuglin's to staying... More

This place is amazing for its hospitality and the unique way it operates. Guests have dinner together and the menu is fixed but let me assure you that the food is excellent. Even as a vegetarian, the variety and quality I received could not have been better. My room happened to be the biggest one in the lodge with a... More
