About Luwawa Forest Lodge
Luwawa Forest Lodge, situated at 5,000 feet above sea level and malaria-free, is nestled in an ideally situated area of the Viphya mountains, in one of the most tranquil and beautiful scenic locations in the north of Malawi. There is something for everyone at the lodge, whether you come for our team building courses, bird-watching with one of our expert guides, or just the peace of this fine, comfortable location.
The lodge offers huge opportunities to explore beautiful woodland, highland plateau trails and rural Malawi life on one of our wilderness adventures. If it's safaris that you want, we can organize touring safaris to the north of Malawi and parts of Zambia, including the Luangwa Game Reserve. Whether it is a day trip out to places of specific interest and scenic beauty or something more exciting, we will do our best to arrange it for you.
Luwawa Forest Lodge is about 200 km north of Lilongwe and 10 km off the main M1 road between Lilongwe and Mzuzu. The lodge itself is situated in a forest reserve with a combination of pine and indigenous woodland. The lodge contains most things that you would require for a relaxing stay, including a sauna. There is plenty of room in the dining area of the lodge and all the food is freshly prepared using fresh organic vegetables from our very own vegetable garden. Our staff take great pride in producing wholesome, homely and very tasty organic meals for everyone to enjoy. We serve breakfast, lunch and evening meals, and you can also order afternoon snacks if required. Self-catering facilities are available at the lodge for those who prefer to do their own cooking, and the lodge also contains a fully stocked kitchen, a lounge area, famous for its Baobab fireplace, and a fully stocked bar where guests can enjoy refreshments and exchange stories of their days activities.
In addition, special events can be arranged and hosted at the lodge, which have included in the past evenings with some of Malawi's top musical entertainers. We also provide a safe and fun range of do-it-yourself or guided activities to suit all ages and abilities. We offer exciting corporate leadership and team building initiatives which are ideal for business, friends or school groups, as well as a range of activities and adventures.
We pride ourselves on our walking, hiking, 4x4 and mountain bike trails, with many beautiful routes in the vicinity of the lodge.
