Lake Malawi A superb bush and beach escape.
This reserve has been established to restore game stocks and rehabilitate the surroundings in conjunction with the local community. The wilderness area has diverse flora and fauna. Visitors to this Mozambique reserve will find luxury lodging, lake and land activities including walking or canoe safaris. Access is via Lichinga, Cobue or Likoma Island on the lake.
With no light pollution for many miles around, the lake beach is perfect for stargazing. Gazing at the stars while sitting around a campfire inevitably leads to everybody sharing stories.
Tucked away on the magical Mozambican shores of Lake Malawi, there are a variety of ways to reach the hidden paradise.
Through Malawi (arriving on Likoma Island, a small Malawian island next to the Mozambican coastline)
Small charter plane from Lilongwe to Likoma island where a boat will be waiting for you.
Experience a Fish Eagle’s eye view of Lake Malawi. Transfers take 50 mins and depart every day.
Through Mozambique (arriving at Cobue, a small village on the lake, where the road ends)
4×4 transfer (or self-drive) from Lichinga to Cobue where Nkwichi’s boat will be waiting on the lake shore. The drive, which takes 4 hours, is one of Africa’s most scenic drives, taking in the Rift Valley escarpment and the coastline of the lake.
Please note: boat transfer depends on lake conditions and there is a risk of winds and rough weather from June – September.
