Danforth Yachting is by far the best place I have visited in Malawi! Stayed here for a night with sisters and we had an amazing time. The service and passion of the owners and staff is impeccable - we had a warm welcome and felt like part of a family the whole time we were there. The food deserves a special mention! Every meal from tea to dinner was amazing. If you love activities then there's loads for you to do; if you want to just rest and relax the environment is perfect for that too. To top it all off, Howard went above and beyond to help us with the car trouble we had as we were leaving - our car battery died and he lent us one from one of the boats just so we could make it home safe! We will definitely be returning for another visit because one day was certainly not enough!
