The Lodge

Set on the pristine Mozambican shores of Lake Malawi, Nkwichi is more than a lodge: Nkwichi is a unique experience of a remote African paradise, with exquisite lakeside scenery, virgin wilderness and unparalleled tranquillity.

This is the perfect place to get off the beaten track and escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world. Life at Nkwichi is lived at a simple pace, dictated only by the rhythms of nature: the rising and setting of the sun, the phases of the moon, the seasons and the weather. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our secluded fresh-water oasis in an untouched corner of Africa. 


Tucked away in the treeline, each house and 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
  • Mesmerizing vistas of the lake

Outdoor DINING

We love to find new locations to serve your meals, whether it a picnic on our spectacular viewpoint, lunch beneath the spreading branches of our ancient Baobab tree or dinner under the starry night-sky on the rocks overlooking the lake.

With the current focus on self-catering, our team of trained, local chefs will cook your choice of meals. You provide the ingredients and we take it from there. Let us know if you prefer us to do the shopping for you and we will do our best to make this work. Where possible we support local business with the purchase of fresh fish and vegetables.
