The accommodation is very average compared to other places we stayed at on the Lake. I was so glad I had brought soap with me as none was provided for the shower in our room. They did however provide liquid soap in the basin for washing your hands. The place is a bit run down and in need of some... More

Great campsite, on the beach overlooking Lake Malawi. The staff here are very friendly and helped organise trips to neighbouring attractions. The food is also good quality and reasonably priced. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We stayed 3 nights at the campsite in our roof top tent. The pitch is good ( electric hook up provided ) and facilities good. The staff are friendly and helpful. Food in the lodge was very good. Would recommend the catamaran excursions. We went on the so called sunset cruise - fantastic.

We spent 4 nights in the campsite in July 2015. The lodge and campsite is very well placed at the end of the village which means that it is quieter but more importantly you have the beach to yourself. In other parts of the village the locals do their washing and are bound to haggle you to buy some of... More

The surprise was as good as the service. The resort is clean, well run! and well managed by Husband and Wife team (Karel and Marelize). The rooms are cozy and very comfortable. Bath rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant will cater to most tastes (Vegetarian included). Just speak to Marelize if you have any specific dietary requirements and I'm... More

Even if the road was not the best all the way and you have to pass through all of the almost roadless Chembe village to get there, this lodge is the best place to stay in the Monkey Bay area. Small but clean and functional bungalows and good food. It is a bit more quiet than the other places in... More

We stayed at Chembe Eagles Nest for two nights and found the campsite one of the best in Malawi. There are two excellent camping spots: one is right on the beach and the second is a little higher up. Both have access to electricity points. The other campsites do not have any views. The bathroom facilities are clean with hot... More

This was a beautiful night. We enjoyed our evening walk seeing the giant Coconut crabs. THE HIGHLIGHT WAS THE SNORKELLING. Gorgeous. The food was good and accommodation good under the organic circumstances with this being an ECO estate. The sand toilet was interesting. The island was very romantic and the beaches beautiful.

Cape Maclear is certainly worth a visit and this hotel did us just fine. The little chalets on the beach were clean and comfortable. The menu was very limited at dinner and the food was ok but not anything special. What makes this hotel is definitely it's secluded location with a lake full of activities and beauty quite literally on... More

We stayed for 6 nights and had plenty activities to keep us busy and relaxed. The lodge has exclusive beach, away from the bustling of village life, but close enough to participate with local activities. We saw the most splendid sunsets every evening, sailing on the Catamaron, snorkeling, swimming, and hiking. The kitchen provided a variety of fresh and balanced... More
