The jewel in the crown of the country’s tourist attractions is Lake Malawi, “discovered” by the missionary-explorer Dr David Livingstone just over 150 years ago. Although totally landlocked, Malawi is not denied its “inland sea”. This vast body of freshwater fringed by beaches of golden sand is not only a scenic wonderland but it provides watersport opportunities for those looking for something beyond sun, sand and swimming.
Latitude is a new contemporary and exclusive boutique hotel in the heart of Lilongwe, combining a bold style with instinctive personal service. The luxurious rooms are individually designed and each enjoying comfort and spaciousness, all providing Wi-Fi, large bath, rain showers, flat screens and climate control.
The restaurant is undoubtedly one of the finest tables in Lilongwe. Award nominated Chef Richard Greenhall and Andrew O’Hallaran have created an eclectic menu that transports the diner from Lake Malawi to Asia and the distant Mediterranean. The exceptional wine collection from South Africa complements the culinary journey.
Bed and breakfast
A stylish and unique lodge situated in a remote part of South Luangwa National Park with abundant and uncongested game viewing on the doorstep. Lion Camp has just nine canvas and thatch chalets accommodating a maximum of 18 guests. Built on raised wooden platforms, they are linked to each other and the main area by a raised wooden boardwalk. Each chalet has either a four poster king-size double bed or twin beds, and a walk-in mosquito net. They are all en-suite with a shower and toilet, and have private decks overlooking the open plain in front.
Luxury safari tent
On Mumbo Island the theme is barefoot luxury – there is everything that you need and nothing that you don’t, including no electricity. Lantern light is provided at night , allowing guests to appreciate the starry night sky. The tiny island camp sleeps only fourteen guests in tastefully furnished tents with shaded decks, hammocks, and en suite hot bucket showers and ‘eco-loos’. A dining room and bar, with a lovely lounge under a baobab tree, complete camp infrastructure.
Mumbo Island is an eco-friendly, unspoilt, sub-tropical island in a remote area and a rare opportunity for a true island experience. A pristine and deserted tropical island floating on the expansive waters of the Lake Malawi National Park. With a maze of massive underwater boulders, innumerable species of colourful cichlid fish and calm, clear water, the national park offers what many consider the best freshwater snorkelling and SCUBA diving in the world.
Bed and breakfast
You can find Pumulani subtly nestled in the lush hills amongst the trees and craggy outcrops. The ten villas with their grass roofs to help reflect the heat provide the ultimate in space, design, comfort, and privacy.
Guests can relax on the white sandy beach or enjoy an elevated view of the lake from the stylish infinity pool. For those seeking some activity, we offer waterskiing, sailing, kayaking, walks in the hills, sunset cruises on our hand-built dhow and snorkeling and diving.
Underwater activities never fail to amaze as the diversity of fish life is very surprising and experts say that this lake is home to more native fish species than any other in the world.
