On arrival in Lilongwe (Malawi) you will be met and transferred to your flight to Likoma Island (a quick 1 hour hop), where you will be met by the Nkwichi boatmen who will transfer across the lake to the lodge – roughly a 2 hour cruise (with a short stopover at Malawi immigration and in Cobué to stamp into Mozambique).
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 tranquility. 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 practicing 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.
Transfer by boat back (via Mozambican and Malawian Immigration) to the spectacular Kaya Mawa Lodge (Malawi) where you can relax and enjoy your escape from ‘The Mainland’.
