Doesn’t matter if you are the adventurous active type of person or if you are just looking to relax on a paradisiac beach, at Nkwichi you can choose the level of activity to suit total relaxation to adventurous activities and excursions.

1. Snorkelling – The tropical fresh waters of Lake Niassa are ideal for snorkelling. There are a variety of routes to help you explore this underwater treasure. Dive down to see a variety of rock formations and here you will begin to see many shoals of blue and yellow fish. There are around 600-1000 species of fish to count in Lake Niassa, which is apparently more than North America and Europe combined! Just dive in underwater wonderland and crystal clear waters on this remote and untouched section of the lake. To avoid disappointment if we don’t have your preferred equipment, you may want to carry you own snorkeling equipment if you have it.

2. Star bed – This is a unique experience recommended for all star-gazers and romantics. On a secluded beach, you will gaze up to a star-filled sky while flow and ebb of water and the cry of the distant animals serenade you to sleep.

3. Kayaking – Kayak along the magic Rift Valley shoreline. This is the ideal activity for exploring the rocks, rivers and beaches along the shoreline and also an excellent way to watch birds. Go on an early bird Kayak safari; wake up when the sun rises and experience and marvel at the red sky as you paddle along spotting the birds catching their breakfast.

4. Hiking – Discover and explore the wilderness area surrounding the Lodge and hike along the rugged coastline of one of Africa’s oldest paths. Put your shoes on and be rewarded with the many amazing walks and hikes available. From panoramic vistas of the lake, village visits, waterfalls, to tracking game through the pristine Miombo Woodland, together with the local guides you can discover the hidden wonders of this ancient landscape.

5. Camping –For the most adventurous travellers! Camping safaris can be arranged to explore the Lakeshore and the Manda Wilderness Community Reserve. From just one night to a four-day adventure, hike the Rift Valley Mountains or explore the beaches from our boat for unforgettable nights under the stars. Camping trips must be booked before arrival.

6. Relaxation – We are sure we do not need to tell our guests how to relax and unwind, but together with other activities, this can be one of the best things Nkwichi has to offer. Either lying on a sun-lounger on the beach reading a thrilling book, in your chalet lying on a hammock, or just playing a board game, the result would be the same… Relaxation! And if you feel like after, join us for sun-downers by the fire with the first flickering of twilight.

7. Culture – Get a glimpse into the customs and culture of the Nyanja tribe. The best way to achieve this is by exploring traditional village life and experience any of the cultural events that happen through the year. Join traditional dances beneath the mango trees, enjoy the outstanding melody and rhythm of African choirs at sunset, marvel at the work of local artisans, and experience the warm welcome of the village life.
