We always heard of cape Maclear from travel magazines. Once we got there it was just breathtaking. We booked ourselves into Thumbi view lodge which was recommended to us by friends, it was just heavenly. The rooms are very clean and staff is amazing. The meals are also fantastic but the pizza was awesome, you need to try it. Thumbi family, thank you for a wonderful weekend.
This spot came highly recommended for stays at the lake and they did not disappoint. From the family room ably shared by 3 of us girls to the never ending cocktails to kayaking what seemed to be halfway across the lake to a delightful guitar show to end the night. Tranquil, peaceful and well placed spot with tremendous views of the lake and plenty of beach access. Piece de resistance is the pool perched high above the beach that gave you a nice place to chill with your drink. Also easy access to craft vendors right outside the gates gave us our fill of souvenirs to take back home. Hint - i wished I had ordered my very own floppy hat (made to order using the local chitenge) on the day I arrived as it would have been ready for me the next day and at a reasonable price.
Thumbi view lodge has a great vibe.A welcoming and professional service is always offered. The location on the shores of Lake Malawi is perfect for a relaxing and comfortable holiday.The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Great place all round.
Awesome place to stay for anybody. Groups, single travellers, backpackers, young, old, everyone is welcome here and are being taken care of in the best way possible. I stayed in a lake facing room which was spacious, clean and very comfortable, with hot water, fan, mosquito nets. And the beach is on your doorstep!
We were looking for accommodation at the lake and it was through the personal service of the owner (she gave good advices via whatsapp) that we’ve chosen for this lodge. It didn’t disappoint us: what a great place to relax. The rooms were Nice, the food was good! Highly recommended.
