  • Dedza Delight

    My husband and I stayed here in 2017 and again in 2020. We live in Lilongwe town so this haven outside of the city serves as a beautiful, cool, quiet, green getaway. The rooms are very spacious and always nicely kept including a small fridge & pantry. We’ve enjoyed hiring guides to take us to the top of Dedza Mountain, to the rock art and on tours around the pottery making shop. We never leave empty handed always bringing home some new pottery! The food has always been tasty and we also never leave without some cheesecake. A great getaway to enjoy the green gardens and cool weather.

  • Repeat visit, still excellent service

    Travelled by cycle from Lilongwe. Cyclists made welcome, which is part of the warm and helpful manner of the staff. Cycle storage will give visitors reassurance. Excellent food which lives up to the high recommendations. There is also an excellent pottery shop on site for memorabilia/gifts. I would strongly recommend visitors to Dedza to visit this venue in atleast one of its capacities.

  • A nice overnight stop, great food

    This is a very reasonable lodge with great food. I loved the cheesecake and the lasagna! The views of Dedza mountain are so beautiful, even or especially in the rainy season with alternating clear blue skies and misting clouds It also has very reasonable rates for exploring the rock paintings in the Dedza area which was my goal.
