Lake Of Stars

Lake Malawi is a mesmerising experience of light over water, whether you are watching the African sun dance off midday waves or the soft lanterns of fisherfolk float over the silky lake at night.

Below the waters of this inland lake a pristine freshwater ecosystem thrives. Diverse marine life, with 400 species of colourful cichlid fish, many of which are endemic, create equally magical viewings for goggle-wearing swimmers. Steep, tree covered hills enclose the lake, and sandy beaches and large granite boulders characterise its shores. The calls of African fish eagles fill the air above.

If you could choose an island in Lake Malawi to be castaway on, Likoma would be it. They say you are never lost on Likoma Island, because the locals will always point you home or walk you back themselves.
