Location: In the hills north of Lilongwe. 15 kms east of Ntchisi. See the website.
This is a guest house run by a friendly South African woman who fell in love with Malawi several years ago and now has a lease to run this charming old house built in colonial days, for guests. She employs locals to help stoke the fire for the hot water, cook the meals, attend to the laundry and garden. They live in harmony, just like a family. Visit the kitchen and chat to the cook. The air is cooler than the lowlands and very agreeable. The surrounding forest has some wild monkeys and many different birds. There are walks to take and villages all around with friendly locals.
