Nkwichi Lodge

About Nkwichi Lodge

Located on the shores of Lake Malawi, one of Africa's Great Lakes, Nkwichi Lodge has been built and designed with its guests' comfort and privacy in mind. With a focus on intimate stays, the lodge allows a maximum of only 14 guests at anyone time, ensuring you get the best possible level of service. The lodges sit in the trees set back from the beach, allowing you to enjoy the feeling of being isolated in nature away from everything while continuing to be comfortable.


Built to fit in with the surrounding environment, Nkwichi Lodge combines traditional building techniques and materials with a sense of truly modern comfort.


Situated on Lake Malawi's Mozambican shore, this lodge grants access to the clear waters which contains a more diverse selection of indigenous fish than anywhere else in the world. On land, there is a wide variety of flora and fauna waiting to be discovered by Nkwichi's guests.

Accommodation & Facilities

Made up of six beautiful chalets and two houses, the accommodation at Nkwichi Lodge is designed to provide the guests with complete privacy and intimacy. Each chalet comes with a four-poster bed and its own private rock pool carved out of locally sourced primordial boulders, while the houses boast their own private beach and fantastic views over the lake. Both accommodation options are designed for exclusive use by either families or large groups. Make sure to try out the lodge's "star bed", situated either on a stretch of private beach or a private rock island, where you can stargaze in comfort as night rolls in.


You choose where you want to eat at Nkwichi Lodge, with the local chefs preparing a selection of exquisite meals made up of fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Dining in the lodges is catered for by your own private chef and culinary team who will ensure your dining experience is tailored to your tastes.


The list of activities at Nkwichi Lodge is extensive, with a wide variety of water-based activities on offer including kayaking, snorkelling and fishing. For those looking to encounter terrestrial wildlife, day trips can be taken into the hidden wonders of the ancient Rift Valley landscape, granting you access to an incredibly diverse ecosystem. You'll also have a chance to immerse yourself in the traditions of the region when spending time with the local Nyanja tribe, known also as the ‘People of the Lake’.
