We just spent a few days here, such a lovely surprise and so glad they found room for us. Friends had told us how amazing it is, it was lovely to find out for ourselves.
Our room was clean and comfortable with en-suite shower room, air con, fan and mossie nets, all opening out onto an amazing view of the lake.
The garden, pool, bar, beach and eating area, under the most amazing thatch, is immaculate, with plenty of places to sit or lie and enjoy the view.
There are lots of options for, kayaking, sailing, snorkelling etc...we paddled to otter point, took a boat ride round Thumbi island to swim, while watching the fish in the clear water, there are fish eagles too.
The food was all delicious and very generous portions, with any special needs (vegetarian) catered for, the muesli at breakfast was very good! early morning coffee and afternoon tea are served too.
A trip on the famous "mufasa" is fabulous, watching the sun go down, champagne in hand , perfect...I had to do it twice!
Howard and Michelle are very experienced hosts, always ready to chat and very knowledgeable, nothing is too much trouble.
We loved our time here and will definitely be back on our next trip to Malawi.
