We stayed at Maliba Mountain Lodge for 2 nights. The location in the mountains is absolutely spectacular and you could easily spend all day relaxing on the deck taking in the views. However there is also plenty to do including hiking and a local village tour. We did the latter and thoroughly enjoyed it, particularly a visit to the local school where we were greeted like rock stars and entertained by the children with songs. We handed over some pads and pens to the teachers which were greatly appreciated.
The food at the lodge is great and they were very accommodating for a vegetarian in our party. Two of us were celebrating birthdays while at Maliba and we really appreciated a visit from one of the waiters with a cake and song in recognition of this. The accommodation was lovely - very roomy, private and quiet with everything you could need.
The staff deserve special mention. They are just about all locals, many of whom were involved in the Lodge's construction who were then retrained to continue to work there. So they have a real commitment to the place and this shows in all they do. They are so welcoming and friendly and seem to always be available.
We had a fantastic stay at Maliba and would recommend it enthusiastically to anyone looking for a great break in the mountains. We only wished we had had more time to enjoy everything it had to offer.
