We only spent 4 days here, but the experience was so great! The location is superb and you have access to the lake from any of the rooms you are given. They have plenty of activities for you to choose from and the staff is so polite and ready to help you if you need assistance. The rooms are spacious, cleaned every day and offer everything you need: hot showers, running water, electricity, fans and air-conditioning. Given all the things you can do at Danforth, you wouldn't want to spend time in the room during the day anyways.
Everyone was friendly and Mr. Howard and Mrs. Michelle made us feel like part of the family. Oh, and Barbara and Justin were so cool! Our kids loved them!
Activities done: kayaking, snorkeling, tubing, eagle feeing, a bit of fishing and we watched the sunset from one of their boats. There are even more things one can do, but we were limited by our short stay.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Danforth for you next Lake Malawi holiday. We will for sure go back!
