Chelinda Lodge, Nyika, Malawi

Chelinda Lodge is a Classic Camp

Big and small game – in the "African Alps"!

Chelinda Lodge is set against a pocket of hagenia woodland and overlooking vast tracts of Nyika National Park's rolling grasslands dotted with large herds of wildlife. Consisting of eight double-storey log cabins, each has a fireplace for the cold highland nights. The ground floor features an open-plan bedroom and lounge, en-suite bathroom and a veranda. A viewing area upstairs functions as additional living space – also ideal for children. The main building has a convivial dining area around a fireplace, and a lounge that opens onto a deck for sundowners.


  • Idyllic escape in the highland wilderness of Malawi
  • One of the log cabins is larger, offering ideal accommodation to families
  • This area is the only big game Afro-montane area in south-central Africa
