I visited the Namizimu Forest Retreat last summer when I was visiting a friend in Malawi and traveling around the beautiful and unique country. Tara, who runs the Retreat is warm and welcoming (you feel right at home). She grew up in Malawi and is good relations with the local community. In other words she is a FOUNTAIN OF KNOWLEDGE for all of your questions about Malawi and Malawians.
The grounds are incredible...truly breathtaking views of the Lake and surrounding towns and forests. Time seems to slow down when you are here... you can hang out in hammocks, by a fire pit, take a dive in the pool, read a book and enjoy being in surrounded by the sites and sounds of Malawi's flora and fauna.
I really want to go back to the Namizimu Forest Retreat one day!
