Booked 1 night as stop-over between Lilongwe & Livingstonia, but changed it to 2 nights when I read Tripadvisor reviews saying they wished they had stayed longer.
As it turned out, a broken rental car key enforced a 4 night stay in what turned out to be one of our favorite venues.
George & Christine were tireless hosts. The staff, especially the chef supplied wonderful meals & service. The setting is sublime with extensive garden & forest walks.
Our highlight was a 5 hour trek to the Fire Tower as described in the excellent Info pack supplied. A troop of 25 baboons crossed the road in front of us then played in nearby trees - what a start on day 2 in Africa!
we also had a memorable family sauna at the bottom of the garden.
Tip: try to avoid driving the forest track to the lodge in the dark!
