Luwawa Forest Lodge

Explore Malawi

Set high in the Viphya Mountains, Luwawa Forest Lodge is an ideal accommodation if you plan to get away from it all. The lodge is situated at around 1650 m above sea level, so expect an incredible wilderness experience and a beautiful setting with the surrounding woodlands and walking trails waiting to be explored.

There are a number of accommodation options to avail of at the lodge that range from tents to en-suite chalets. If you don't mind shared or low cost accommodation then the Bunk House might work for you, as the name suggests all beds are bunk beds. A large campsite is also found at Luwawa with a number of facilities, including hot and cold water and flush toilets. Guests can also avail of self-catering cottages and family en-suite chalets.

Thanks to its stunning mountain setting the lodge has some exciting activities on offer. For a real adventure take a wilderness trail from your perch in the Viphya to legendary Lake Malawi or for a gentler excursion take to one of the trails in the lodge's surrounding area. Theses trails vary in length and difficulty but are a great way to immerse in the forest and see some local birdlife. Mountain biking and rock climbing are also on offer.
