About Nkwichi Lodge

Nkwichi Lodge is a hidden hand-built lodge situated on the beautiful shores of Lake Niassa, at one of the most beautiful points on the lake and provides a rare chance to savour an unspoilt corner of real Africa. The lake's fresh water is crystal clear and contains a greater variety of indigenous fish species than any other lake in the world.Each of our chalets has been carefully tucked away in the tree line so that the pristine lake-shore scenery is unspoilt. The lodge has been carefully designed to provide comfort and privacy for all guests, with the highest levels of service in a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. Flexibility and attention to detail is our ultimate goal in providing excellent service for your stay.The lodge is located at the foot of the escarpment in the Rift Valley, meaning that it only takes a few minutes to walk up behind the lodge, gain some height and look out over the lake towards Malawi. The scenery varies enormously as you move inland from the lakeshore through acacia woodland, grassy plains bordered by streams and rivers, and past deep rocky gorges.Explore the area on foot, by canoe and in sailing dhows or just laze in a hammock above a secluded cove. The Lakeshore Deck is a popular place to have breakfast each morning, sitting under the shade of the large fig tree eating fresh mangos and homemade muesli while gazing out across the blue water. If you are busy with activities away from the lodge, delicious picnics will be provided wherever your guide takes you.
