General Information

Lake Malawi is the second deepest lake in Africa. It has more fish species than any other lake on Earth. Lake Malawi is known as the Calendar lake because it is 365 miles long.

Lake Malawi is Malawi’s gem a beautiful fresh water lake measuring approximately 360 miles x 52 miles; third largest fresh water lake in Africa and the eighth in the world. Being landlocked has made Malawi, as a whole, hidden from the rest of the world. Even though Malawi encourages tourism, the lack of it has meant this area of Malawi is practically untouched, beautiful, natural, peaceful, with the most golden beaches in the country and of course the friendliest people in Africa. 

Lake Malawi has a wide variety of bird and fish sanctuaries which can be visited by arrangement with your resort, alternatively local fisherman also offer trips.

Majority of bird and fish sanctuaries are a brilliant place to snorkel or have a barbeque. If you decide to get into the water, you’ll probably find yourself surrounded by hundreds of different coloured fish which swim into your hands if you stay still.

Lake Malawi National Park can also be visited offering sites of Malawi’s big game, baboons and a variety of birds. A must try while visiting the Lake is the famous Chambo fish, you could easily buy fresh fish from local fishermen early in the morning and either barbeque them yourself or ask the resort to do it for you.
