We spent 3 wonderful days at Danforth. As we arrived we were greeted by Michelle and Howard and from that moment felt we were part of the family. The rooms were charming, clean and welcoming. The location unbelievable, right on the shores of the lake, food excellent, good variety and we loved the afternoon teas and all the chats with Michelle and Howard, we wanted for nothing. Ryno and Maike are the perfect team, ready for anything never intrusive just full of advice and enthusiasm. The boat cruise was spectacular and the snorkelling exciting, diving excellent and the braai on the Senza and then feeding the fish eagles made for a perfect day. The sunset cruise on Mufasa was something we will remember for always and on return to shore my sandals waiting for me, how thoughtful was that. A truly perfect holiday everything taken care of and all we had to do was relax and enjoy the experience.
Michele, Heinz and Mischa.

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!

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!!
