    Stayed at the self-serve Mahindu cottages for two nights and had a fabulous time here. No network signal, just birds, colobus monkeys and beautiful surroundings. The plunge pools, the hikes in the forests are fantastic. Best of all Malu allows dogs - so our Misty...More

    Coming back to Malu after over 5 years was somewhat of a disappointment. The natural spring and forest were beautiful and definitely the saving grace of this lodge. The management has let the place run down spectacularly. What were once cosy family cottages are now...More

    Two nights and lots to do. Loved the ensuite African-sytled chalet with a verandah facing the forested hill, the hike up through the cedar forest, seeing Sharpe's starling on the canopy of the forest and more. This is the only tract of indigenous forest of...More
