the lodge has excellent accomodation, very good service and great food. The owners Trish and Dan are very nice people. I have stayed there the third time in February / March 2022 and will be back in July. I recommended it to some friends for a easter holiday and they were absolutely delighted.

November 24th, 2021 Definitively the best experience we had so far ashore the Lake. Camping along the beach, on large grass area and under shady trees, very quiet place, nice swimming pool. The rebuilding of the bar/restaurant is not at all a nuisance. We had diner served at our campsite along the beach ! And most of all, the hosts, Trish & Dan are just wonderful ! Caring about their guests, giving useful information and telling nice stories about Malawi. It’s a 100% for this place.

Back from another trip to Ngala Beach, as usual Trish, Dan and the staff made me feel very welcome. It doesn’t matter whether it is a holiday on my own or with the family, it’s a great place to relax and enjoy the weather, food, beautiful grounds, clean beach and water of the lake. Trish and Dan have invested in many improvements since my last stay including new kayaks and told me they are hoping for a new larger boat for trips on the lake shortly. Pizza night is a must, home made and fresh from the wood burning oven. BBQ’s on the beach. If you haven’t booked for Christmas and New Year and they have space, it’s a great way to spend the holiday season, I would highly recommend you book.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing location, you can’t find a better place. The beach is quiet and clean, the sunsets over the lake spectacular, and the lodge has amazing ambience, with delicious food, and great and friendly staff. You won’t want to leave!

What a refuge - After many days overlanding this was a beautiful resting spot. The campsite is delightful - flat , well grassed, shady, close to the beach and great amenities . Showers and toilets clean and hot. Beach was clean and isolated. Hosts Trish & Dan are professional and caring what more could you ask for - well worth spending some time at Ngala Beach Lodge

Stayed here with two local friends, and happy to recommend. The room was fine, the beds among the most comfortable I've slept on, and the hosts very helpful. My friend was very late in arriving (1 a.m.) and Dan the manager kindly waited to give him a ride from the bus stop. Beach very nearby, grounds nice, food also good. Might seem a bit on the expensive side, but in fact it's very fair value.
