Views from the kondi in our chalet were perfect. We sat having coffee while watching kids playing in the waves. A beautiful, quiet lodge where we were the only guests. Walked along the coast from Mango Drift to here and it is a stunning walk

About
Description
Idyllic setting on the West Side of Likoma Island. Brilliant snorkelling in the clear waters of Lake Malawi. Amazing bird life including Osprey, Kites, Eagles, and Kestrels. Deluxe Eco Chalets, Superior More Chalets & Standard Chalets all near the beach with stunning lake views. Bar and restaurant on a wooden deck - the perfect place for a long cool sun downer while the sun sets into the lake. In the four years since we opened we have gained the reputation for the best food on Likoma Island with lots of fresh veggies and fruit from our garden. Campsite and Dorm for budget travellers. Less
