Home away from Home...

 Zomba Forest Lodge has been a rest house/lodge for the past 30 years or so but it is now not just a lodge, it is our home. It is not just a business, it is a lifestyle we choose. If you would like to visit us, we will treat you like friends, guests to our house so please do not expect anything too formal!

The atmosphere  here is intimate, cosy and friendly. We want to make sure that you have a great time, whatever you wish to do, whether that is hiking all day or spending a hard day relaxing listening to the sounds of the forest.

As 2021 begins, the shadow of Covid-19 continues to loom over us and so we want to assure our guests that we will continue to follow the health and safety guidelines for as long as we need to.

To that end, we are taking a maximum of 4 guests at a time, unless a bigger social bubble group would like to book.

On the plus side, our Green Season rates are BACK :)

AND we are offering extra discounts for social bubble bookings and mid-week bookings, as well as the possibility of 'ZFL Lite' rates for mid-week bookings only (Monday to Thursday)

This year has been tough and it looks like we are not out of the woods yet.

But, thanks to our family, friends and frieguests, we have made it through and we continue to smile.
We wanted to thank you all for your continued support and look forward to a brighter future together :)
