We love the rustic atmosphere, the nature trails, the animals, kayaking, swimming, and the restuarant is well organized so you don't have to wait hours for food like you would virtually everywhere else in Malawi. We live in Lilongwe and for us, this is a great way to spend some time in nature and get out of the city once in a while.
