Snorkeling – 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. Our boat M.V. Bonnie Alfie goes out daily to various dive sites. One 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 one can see the fish swiming under you as you gently paddle along. 

Water skiing –  or other fun activity can be arranged behind our speed boat

Bird Watching – The bird life is varied and plentiful. Bird watching can be done in the bush behind the lodge , or just sit in the garden and they will come to you.

Monkey Bay visits – Another favorite is a tour of the Monkey Bay. Here one can get the real feel of village life. Go shopping in the market with Erika for the daily fruit and vegetables.

Relax and read you book in  one of our hanging chairs on the beach, or enjoy a Malawi gin and tonics in the swimming pool.

Mountain Climbing – There is a rather challenging climb to the top of the mountain behind the lodge. Once you get to the top the views are stunning so well worth the effort.

Golf – There is a 9 hole mashie course about 20km from our guest lodge. One can hire golf equipment from the pro shop if need be.

Sun down cruise –  An evening cruise with a chilled glass of wine to watch the magical sunset over the lake end another day at The Norman Carr Cottage.
