A hidden hand-built lodge on the dazzling Mozambique shores of Lake Malawi /Niassa. A rare chance to savour an unspoiled corner of real Africa. Explore on foot, by canoe, in sailing dhows. Laze in a hammock above a secluded cove. See for yourself how responsible tourism supports local people and their timeless surroundings. Sugar-white 'squeaking' sands, washed by clear fresh water teeming with tropical fish.

I must admit to being grumpy on arrival. It was a long, long haul to get to Nkwichi. It took as long to get through immigration in Lilongwe as it took to fly from Johannesburg to Lilongwe in the first instance. Then there was a...More
You will go a long way to find anywhere as idyllic as Nkwichi Lodge. Located in a small, secluded and achingly beautiful bay surrounded by densely wooded hills that shield it from the outside world, the lodge itself is utterly charming:

The staff were so chatty and took a...More

The star bed location can be either on a rocky outcrop on the lake, atop a viewpoint overlooking the lake or on a private beach. The closest village to Nkwichi is around a 40 minute walk away, so there are not many people close to the lodge, and the star bed locations are not located near the footpaths to the village, so it is unlikely that you will encounter anyone on your experience. There are animals around, but there is no need for them to come near to you. We also do leave our guests with radios (just in case of any emergencies), and we have not had to use them yet .... I hope this answers your questions?
