The Lodge

Aqua Africa

Aqua Africa has a beautiful on-site lodge with a range of accommodation and a cafe open all day, available to both guests and day visitors. Located right on the lake shore with a private beach and spectacular views of the whole bay, this is the perfect place to have a bite to eat or stay for a while to do some diving. You’ll be sure to receive a warm welcome and get plenty of travel advice and tips while you’re here.

Nkhata Bay is known for its friendly and laid back atmosphere and The Lodge is a perfect place to stay during your travels and enjoy the beautiful clear waters of Lake Malawi. We are perfectly located only minutes (right next door to the ferry port) from the Town, so our guests are able to explore this vibrant port town with its weekend markets, local restaurants and bars.

If you or your travelling partners are not diving, there are plenty of other things to keep you busy.

We can arrange kayaking tours for just an afternoon or for several days. Horse riding is also possible along with a variety of water sports.

Aqua Africa is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Nkhata Bay and you can easily visit the local market, or look for something special from one of the town’s wood carvers – perhaps even order one of Malawi’s famous Chief’s Chairs!

And if it’s peace and quiet you’re after, simply make your way down to our secluded beach and enjoy the view. Before long you are sure to be treated to a sight of one of the local fish eagles as well as an array of kingfishers, egrets, herons and weavers.
