Chelinda Lodge

Nyika National Park, Malawi


Stay at Chelinda Lodge

Chelinda Lodge is set against a pocket of hagenia woodland overlooking vast tracts of Nyika National Parks rolling grasslands dotted with large herds of wildlife.

The lodge consists of eight double-storey twin log cabins each with two three quarter beds (can be converted to doubles on request) on a raised deck. Dining takes place in the main lodge.

The cabins are made of pine and are essentially warm log cabins with a fireplace for the cold highland nights. They each

have an en-suite bathroom with a bath and a shower, and an upstairs viewing area or room for accompanying children. The chalets are joined to the main lounge area by an elevated wooden walkway. During winter hot water bottles and extra blankets are provided.

There are also two chalets that are interconnected and can be used for a family for four.

It’s been nearly ten years since we last visited Malawi, that time we just went to Lake Malawi after we’d been on safari in Zambia. This time we wanted to experience a bit more. It was amazing. We loved the Nyika Plateau and our stay at Mkulumadzi was one of our most memorable safaris. I don’t think there’s anywhere better on earth than Kaya Mawa – it’s the dream!
