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.

Dear Linda M, Thank you so much for your kind review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your time at Ngala Beach Lodge! In response to your valid comments: Food prepration times depend on menu item, nearly all our food is homemade and freshly prepared, being cooked to order, but apologies if this took a little longer than expected. Skyband Malawi provides the internet service at Ngala, we feel they offer the fastest and most reliable service, we charge according to there pricing structure. They do offer our customers 250MB of data daily, free of charge when using your Facebook account to log on. We are looking forward to getting low cost, high speed internet in Malawi soon (-: We really hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels and can make it back to visit us again one day! Kind Regards, Dan & Trish
