Malawi works on a totally different tourism model to southern African stalwarts like Botswana and South Africa. Instead of every mod con conceivable, Malawian camps tend to be unpretentious and down to earth with warm hospitality their trump card. We have travelled extensively in Malawi and find that our selection of tried and tested small intimate camps and lodges in the key areas of the Lake satisfy our visitors time and time again.
On the central lakeshore we like to use Chintheche Inn with its flat sandy beaches, friendly local community and offshore island for diving and snorkelling. Nkwichi on the Mozambique shore offers an exceptional ecotourism experience with local community involvement, while Kaya Mawa on Likoma Island in the northern half of the Lake and Pumulani in the south have a charm all their own. Our favourite camp is Mumbo Island – an environmental sustainability showpiece with extensive use of solar technology and other innovations. Mumbo is located within the Lake Malawi National Park and supports no fewer than 7 cichlid species found only here.
Each of the camps caters to a slightly different market, whether this is honeymooners, families, safari-extensions or adventure activities and we will ensure you stay at the right location for your requirements.
