The Norman Carr Cottage

The Norman Carr Cottage

The Norman Carr Cottage is situated on the southern lake shore of Lake Malawi, in the beautiful sheltered bay of Namakoma just 15km south of Monkey Bay. A gentle and restful place where we promise you 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.

Discover the magic of the open air aquariums which the southern lake shore is renowned for. We offer daily trips to various dive sites and remote islands for snorkeling. One can witness the majestic flight of the fish eagles on these trips.

Lake Malawi lies in central Africa at the southern end of the great rift valley. With an area of 30 000sq km it is the third largest lake in Africa. When Livingston first saw the lake with its winking galaxies he called it a ‘Lake of Stars’. As the sun catches the many facets of the water, the lake twinkles like the stars above. As day turns into night and the moon replaces the sun the lake takes on a whole new beauty with the moon creating a “stairway to heaven”. The lake definitely has a magic of its own.

Malawi is known as the warm heart of Africa for its friendly and peaceful people. Believe me,Malawi will steal your heart.
