We spent 5 nights here and it was the perfect way to end our Malawi trip. Everyone is so warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. You can be as active or inactive as you like, the setting is breathtaking and there is plenty of wildlife, we had our own fish eagle by our room, amazing birds and entertaining monkeys. We did the hike to Peter's rock, visited the farm which is fantastic and walked to the furthest village, Patson and Richard were superb guides. The food is wonderful, lots of fresh vegetables and herbs and everything is presented so beautifully. You can eat when and where you want, we enjoyed the beach sundownerss with everyone and also chose to join with others for dinner which was always lovely.
We particularly loved our outdoor bathroom, it was just amazing to have the view over the Lake while relaxing in the rock bath,very special which sums up Nikwichi. I highly recommend at least 5 nights here.
