Nkwichi Lodge
Lake Malawi, Malawi

Nkwichi Lodge is set on a beautiful white beach in the Mozambican section of Lake Malawi (known in Mozambique as Lake Niassa). There are no roads within 10 miles of the lodge which helps create a feeling of remoteness and tranquillity. Built to blend in with the surrounding scenery, the double storey building has expansive views over the lake. It's up to you how much or how little you do in a day - you can swim, snorkel, sail, canoe, explore the surrounding Manda Game Reserve and visit local villages and community projects.

The lake's fresh water is crystal-clear and contains a greater variety of indigenous fish species than any other lake in the world. After a morning's activities you can always return to the beach to relax, sunbathe and read a good book. Nkwichi prides itself on practising responsible methods of tourism development and is committed to protecting the environment and community development. Consequently, the lodge has won numerous awards for its philosophy and dedication to quality service.

Each of the six chalets at Nkwichi Lodge has been discretely tucked into the treeline to preserve the natural setting and keep each chalet private from the next. Each chalet is unique and incorporates the surrounding trees and rocks into its design.

The luxuriously rustic chalets include a romantic four-poster bed draped in mosquito netting, electric lighting each evening, and an en suite bathroom designed so that you can bathe outside under the tree canopy in complete privacy. All the bathrooms have showers hung from overhanging branches with hot and cold running water and some of the bathtubs have been carved from the natural rock.

Out in front of the chalets is a thatch-covered veranda with comfortable armchairs and hammocks to relax in.

For a private and exclusive experience for your family or group of friends, stay in either of the two Nkwichi Houses. Makolo House, with its high thatched ceilings and upstairs platform, has two en suite bedrooms and private access to the lake for swimming.

The Songea House and Chalet is set in a beautiful position overlooking the lake and a private cove. Socialising happens in the sunken lounge and open dining area while accommodation is provided in an upstairs room with its own balcony with views of the lake as well as in a separate chalet with an en suite bathroom.
