Stunning setting on a plateau overlooking Chitimba and the lake. Owners are hilarious and lots of fun! Very happy to help and hang out. Food is the best we’ve had in Malawi. Fresh, organic food homemade with love from their garden. Cool accommodation options. It’s a bit difficult to get to but well worth the effort. It’s a 2-2.5hr hike up the mountain (not too strenuous if you stick to the road) or you can try your luck at the bottom and wait for a lift. One of the best lodges in Malawi, don’t miss it!
