What more can be said about this perfect place? Everything is taken care of even before you can start thinking about it, perfectly equipped for any watersports, perfectly organised from sunrise to well after Sunset (especially the Sunset cruise on the catamaran), the perfect "seaman's fare" poached egg, the succulent prime beef, the subtly scented variations on the thai coconut-curry theme, the chutneys and deserts. So we must talk about the heart, the passion, the total commitment of the entire team into making everyone, Young, old and anywhere in between feel at home, all the time. Diving in Lake Malawi can be just gazing at colourful fish but with the expert explanations from Howard it becomes a study in animal behaviour, understanding who is doing what to whom and why. An early morning low number of species birdwalk turns into a story-telling academy, every activity in fact turns into a story-telling academy. A wonderful place with formidable people running it. The kids felt like Kings.

Danforth Yachting is a wee touch of paradise within one of the best countries in Africa. The hosts, the staff, and the ambiance was warm, welcoming and delightful. The food was as good as you'd find in a 5* venue anywhere in the world, and the Chef and his staff provided special dietary catering that was outstanding. You couldn't ask for a better balance of intimate surroundings and outstanding activities, and you couldn't find nicer people as hosts and welcoming staff.

We stayed here for three nights and I wish it had been longer. From the moment we arrived we were throughly looked after. After travelling a gin and tonic in the infinity pool was perfect. The food was excellent and loved the afternoon home made cake every day. Snorting, kayaking and scuba diving kept us occupied. Will definely return one day!!

Hosts Michelle and Howard are excellent. They couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. You can tell how much pride they take in their beautiful lodge and how they have worked so hard to achieve such a high standard. They have a wealth of knowledge of the area and various activities available and are wonderful people. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was also five-star. Altogether, superb. Thank you.

Small scale, very comfortable place to stay with terrific hosts who facilitate your stay in whatever way suits you best, from very active to quiet R&R. The location is beautiful. Apart from hosts Michelle and Howard and their excellent support team, the outstanding feature was the food. We loved going out on the boats to snorkel and to see fish Eagles close up. The rooms have every facility you need, but in case it matters to you, the decor is not contempory chic.
