Mgoza Lodge Cottage

Mgoza Lodge

A homely lodge on the shores of beautiful Lake Malawi

The perfect base for a water based adventure

Nestled in luscious gardens, this cosy thatched lodge effortlessly combines comfort and charm

Mgoza Lodge is situated in Chembe Village - a vibrant Malawian fishing community - in the middle of Cape Maclear on the stunning southern shores of Lake Malawi. The beach is just a few sandy footprints to the door of your accommodation, and with dazzling blue waters and mountains towering high, what more could you want from a holiday?

Mgoza Lodge has different configurations of accommodation to suit all tastes and requirements, ranging from A-framed thatched dorms and huts to en-suite chalets with a truly African vibe. All rooms contain extra-large double beds and have flowing mosquito nets. Featured in the rooms are artwork produced by local artists, which is complimented by the breath-taking views of the lake from the individual verandas. Shaded by leafy trees, the outdoor swimming pool is the perfect place to cool down from the hot sun, and there are plenty of shady spots in the garden to relax. The restaurant focuses on using the freshest and most local produce in its restaurant and serves traditional dishes.

A short walk from Mgoza Lodge is Cape Maclear Scuba Diving Centre which caters for beginners or more experienced divers. On your underwater exploration, keep your eyes peeled for cichlids, and other vibrantly coloured fish. Going on a boat cruise is the best way to soak up the renowned sunsets, or take a solo kayak trip out to Thumbi Island or Otters Point to appreciate the serenity of the lake.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
