The Norman Carr Cottage is situated along the sandy beaches on the southern lake shore of Lake Malawi, in the beautiful sheltered bay of Namakoma just 15 km south of Monkey Bay. A gentle and restful place where you are guaranteed a memorable Malawian experience. You will be left with fond memories of this charming African country where time stands still, the pace is gentle and the scenery is stunning.
Malawi has much to offer, sun drenched beaches, turquoise waters abounding with brightly colored cichlid fishes, great for snorkeling and diving.
There are over 600 species of fish in the lake with new species being discovered all the time. The fish life is abundant which makes snorkeling very popular. The Cottage's boat - the M.V. Bonnie Alfie - goes out daily to various dive sites. You can enjoy a spectacular show from the fish eagles on these trips.
Canoeing is a lovely family activity as the paddle skis are very easy to use. The lake is so clear on calm days that you can see the fish swiming under you as you gently paddle along.
The Norman Carr Cottage consists of 4 Executive Suites, 2 Courtyard Rooms and a 2 bedroom Family Cottage with a shared bathroom. The rooms are spacious and airy with signature open air showers, kingsize beds and coffee/tea making facilities.
The renowned cuisine offers full catered home cooked meals that are enjoyed in the open beach dining area overlooking the sparkling waters of Lake Malawi.
All meals, and 2 activities per day (snorkelling or a sunset cruise) are included.
