Africa’s most bio-diverse lake awaits you
A halcyon paradise hidden on the pristine Mozambican shores of Lake Niassa (Lake Malawi).
More than a lodge, Nkwichi is a complete experience offering a unique taste of Africa with exquisite lakeside scenery and unparalleled tranquillity. With 8 secluded beaches set on 4 km of Rift Valley coastline, Nkwichi is the perfect setting to discover a lost world; a fresh-water oasis. The Nkwichi boat team will make your arrival incredibly special after a private chartered flight or four-hour drive from Lichinga, Mozambique to Cobue, a small fishing village where the road ends. The secret Mozambican shore offers a chance to experience an Africa untouched. Virgin woodland, teeming with life, ancient rock formations and scattered, secluded bays by the dozen.
Tucked away in the treeline, each chalet is unique. All individually designed and built using local materials to blend in to their surroundings, they deliver absolute luxury in a natural setting. Complete privacy and intimacy, hand-crafted furniture, including 4-poster beds, rock-pool baths carved out of primordial boulder, and mesmerizing views of the lake. For those looking for the ultimate retreat, Nkwichi’s private houses, with open-plan, spacious design designed for groups and families, offer sanctuary in a sumptuous setting. You’ll have your own private chef and private beach. The ultimate way to savour Lake Malawi, Nkwichi’s ‘Lake of Stars’ Bed’ is a unique and unforgettable experience. Set on a deserted, virgin beach surrounded by breathtaking baobabs, or on a private rock island close to the shore with Fish Eagles soaring overhead, this is the perfect way to see the wonders of an African night-sky.
The crystal-clear freshwater of Africa’s most bio-diverse lake awaits you – explore secluded bays, untouched beaches, towering monoliths and an underwater world of wonder. Stand Up Paddle and play in pristine fresh-water. Enjoy a snorkel safari through a world of brilliantly-coloured tropical fish. Canoe along the magical Rift Valley shoreline, watch the world go by in a sunset dhow cruise and savour fishing trips in a traditional dug-out canoe.
