Mbuna Bay Eco Lodge Game Viewing and Activities
Guests may want to stroll down to the beach on a peaceful early morning and go for a quiet swim as nature is waking up with the first whispers of little bush birds or the cry of the majestic fish eagle nesting high up on a tree. For the exploration of the broader lake area, Mbuna Bay offers an individual kayak, a large Canadian canoe, several local dugout canoes and a big traditional dhow “Martha”, that will sail further south to the most remote parts of the lake or to the world famous “N’nosi Reef” (Minos Reef). The more athletic types can venture out on the lake on a windy day to enjoy the waves with our wind surfer, surf board or body boards. Teh lodge's friendly and knowledgeable local guides will conduct fascinating walks along the lake or into the surrounding hilly bush land. Having been brought up at the lake they can explain the names and habits of the vast range of birds you will encounter, explain to you the medicinal properties of trees and other plants.
On the wild shore of Lake Niassa, the 9th largest lake in the world, is where Nkwichi Lodge has been built. At 560km long and 80km wide, this lake forms the eastern border between Malawi and Mozambique. The individual chalets are tucked away on the lake shore.
