Nkwichi Lodge Game Viewing and Activities

Lunches vary depending on what you do each day. Guests often take part in activities which take them away from the lodge during the day. One of the highlights of people's stay is the walk to one of the largest baobab in Africa. It is estimated to be well over 2000 years old. Lunch is served under the shade of this spectacular living antique. For a lazy afternoon, relax on the beach or at the dining room, which has a raised view out over the lake. A few excursions on offer are walking, canoeing, and visiting the local community, while guides provide delicious picnic lunches. The lake attracts a vast range of bird species. Some of these are indigenous to this part of Africa whilst numerous species pass through on their migration flights north and south each year. The lodge has several guides who are highly knowledgeable about finding and identifying the local bird species. After breakfast guests take a launch or dhow across to Likoma Island which remains part of Malawi despite being on the Mozambique side of the lake
