A hal­cyon par­adise, hid­den in the an­cient moun­tains of Lake Ni­assa, lies a place so se­cret, it's been for­got­ten in the mists of time!

Nk­wichi Lodge is lo­cated in the north-west­ern cor­ner of Mozam­bique, on the easter side of Lake Malawi or Lake Ni­assa (as it's called on the Mozam­bi­can side). Nk­wichi of­fers a touch of Robin­son Cru­soe.

Here guests can savour an un­spoilt cor­ner of real Africa and ex­pe­ri­ence how re­spon­si­ble tourism sup­ports lo­cal peo­ple and their time­less sur­round­ings, be­sides sugar-white ‘'squeak­ing' sands, washed by clear fresh wa­ter teem­ing with trop­i­cal fish.

Guests can ex­plore the wilder­ness on foot, with snorkel gear or by dug-out ca­noe. Guests will also see the dif­fer­ence Manda is mak­ing - and by stay­ing at Nk­wichi, they be­come a part of it.

Nk­wichi has been recog­nised as a pi­o­neer­ing eco-tourism es­tab­lish­ment and has been awarded many ac­co­lades, in­clud­ing the most re­cent Conde Nast Trav­eller World Saver Award in the ‘Do­ing it All' cat­e­gory for small re­sorts 2012, and a GOLD African Re­spon­si­ble About The Mozam­bique Col­lec­tion Tourism Award in 2016. Nk­wichi Lodge aims to con­tinue to work hard at push­ing the bound­aries of re­spon­si­ble tourism and redefin­ing the ul­ti­mate ex­pe­ri­ence of a beach sa­fari in Africa.

Ded­i­cated to con­serv­ing the pris­tine lakeshore and vir­gin wilder­ness in which it op­er­ates, Nk­wichi en­gages with the lo­cal Nyanja peo­ple in their devel­op­ment and helps pre­serve and en­hance their colour­ful cul­ture.

Ar­riv­ing at this idyl­lic lo­ca­tion by boat one would never know that a lux­ury lodge is se­cluded in the trop­i­cal bush.

The lodge it­self and each of the eight chalets have been care­fully tucked away in the tree line so that the pris­tine lakeshore scenery is un­spoilt and each chalet is lo­cated far enough apart to pro­vide pri­vacy.

The chalets are hand-built and sculp­tured from pri­mor­dial boul­ders, with rock pool, out­door baths, tree-hang­ing show­ers, and hand­crafted, nat­u­ral fur­ni­ture.

The Mozam­bique Col­lec­tion show­cases some of the most ex­cit­ing, unique and in­ti­mate des­ti­na­tions, ac­cen­tu­at­ing the va­ri­ety found in Mozam­bique, one of Africa's most in­com­pa­ra­ble, rapidly devel­op­ing and beau­ti­ful coun­try.

The brand brings to­gether a col­lec­tion of stun­ning prop­er­ties work­ing to­gether to pro­mote the des­ti­na­tion. The hand picked port­fo­lio of members each has it's own spe­cial at­trac­tions and ex­pe­ri­ences to con­trib­ute to the plethora of ad­ven­tures that the coun­try has to of­fer.

The un­der­ly­ing prin­ci­ple of au­then­tic lux­ury, in the true sense, res­onates with all members – to of­fer the best pos­si­ble ex­pe­ri­ences in idyl­lic lo­ca­tions, while cre­at­ing a pos­i­tive legacy for the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and en­vi­ron­ment in which they op­er­ate.
