Sit back, relax and imagine this scene.
You are in Africa, sitting under the shade of a fig tree, looking out over one of the world's largest freshwater lakes.

To your right rock pools filled with crystal clear water, teem with fluorescent coloured fish darting amongst smooth ancient boulders.

On your left lies a white sandy beach stretching away from you, backed by pristine forest. All you can hear is the warm waters of this tropical lake lapping against the beach. Out on the lake the silhouette of a fisherman in his wooden canoe passes by as he paddles home with his day's catch.

Sounds like the perfect place to relax? At Nkwichi Lodge, on the shores of Lake Niassa in Mozambique, it's just the end of another day in this peaceful corner of Africa.

Nkwichi. The ideal romantic interlude. The perfect match for an African safari.

Honeymoon Chalet: Called 'Nkwazi’ meaning African Fish Eagle and this impressive bird of prey is often seen on the tree in front of its veranda. Nkwazi is spectacular; the setting for this chalet is truly impressive - overlooking the lake with its own unique dining spot named Venus Beach, where guests can enjoy romantic dinners under the stars. Here you can enjoy the stunning views whilst relaxing outside the chalet and you may see a hyrax or two scampering around the rocks. Nkwazi offers all the comforts of the other chalets, with just a little more of everything!
As well as the lodge, there are two private houses available;
Makolo House: Makolo House offers the ultimate private retreat, located deep in the African bush. Hidden from view amongst the trees the house overlooks the lakeshore and offers complete peace and relaxation. The house is cleverly designed using natural local materials and has two en-suite bedrooms (1 Twin & 1 Double) with a high thatched roof providing a great feeling of space. There is an upstairs platform which is a perfect place for the kids to hang out, or to relax and watch the sunset over the lake. The location is ideal for taking walks out to explore the bush, and there is private access down to the lake for swimming and snorkelling. Meals will be provided on site by your own chef, and you are a ten minute walk from the main lodge - where you can take full advantage of all the facilities.
Songea House & Chalets: For a private escape with family or friends, this unique house and two double chalets trio combines idyllic accommodation, a great 'entertaining’ venue, luxurious outside dining, a secluded private beach and breath-taking views of the lake. The main house has an extremely spacious open-plan design, with a grand dome thatched roof. The main feature of the house is a large circular reception room with a unique sunken sitting area. An attractive staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom which has a balcony overlooking the central room downstairs.The two separate chalets are a short distance from the main house providing additional accommodation - making this the perfect choice for small groups. The open design of the chalets gives a very natural feeling. The first has picture-perfect views of the lake, while the second is located just meters from the water’s edge, with surrounding trees concealing the chalet in a natural hideaway. The en-suite bathrooms have wonderful double-baths (great for sharing!), and is cleverly designed so that you can enjoy the views across the lake while relaxing in your bath or shower.
