Chelinda Lodge

Set on the magnificent Nyika Plateau, Chelinda Lodge is the gateway to the surrounding natural beauty and stunning countryside. Make sure you bring warm clothes when staying at Chelinda: the high altitude of the plateau can leave a chill in the air but there are perks to this, with the area malaria free and a perfect excuse to enjoy a roaring log fire.

The property is a timber and stone build, which lends to an authentic, cosy feel. Accommodation takes the form of 8 log cabins, which span two floor and possess a stunning veranda, open plan lounge, en suite bathroom and double beds.

The main area of the lodge is comfortable and comprises a dining room with decking, a central lounge and bar. From the lodge explore with mountain biking, guided walks and game drives.
