Less than 2 hours from Lilongwe you will find yourself on an unspoilt island paradise, surrounded by nature and luxury.
Tucked away on Nankoma Island, a part of the Marelli Island archipelago, is the Blue Zebra Island Lodge. Under the protection of the Lake Malawi National Park, the Marelli Island archipelago offers a unique opportunity to see rare species of Malawi's colourful cichlid fish that have earned this site its UNESCO World Heritage Site accreditation. The area is also renowned for a dazzling array of birdlife - Malawi boasts over 650 different species of birds, 10% of which are native species non-existent anywhere else on the globe.
Various activities include kayaking - a great way to get out and explore the coves and coastal wildlife up close; boat trips to explore the stunning, natural archipelago, enjoy a spot of fishing, or simply experience the pleasure of cruising across the calm and clear waters of Lake Malawi; sunset boat trips - enabling you to experience an awe inspiring Lake Malawi sunset and witness an unforgettable event as the sun gently dips below the low lying Nkhotakota hills in the distance; snorkelling - literally just a few meters off the shore, you will experience Malawi’s renowned cichlids in all their natural splendour; and scuba diving - from experienced divers to beginners there is a dive that is suitable, or for the complete novice, why not spend some time with the dive instructor in the pool to familiarise yourself with the equipment and procedures before you head out into the deep blue.
