Lake, Malawi

Domwe Island Lodge is on the largest unpopulated island in Lake Malawi, with a circumference of 11km and a highest point of 400m above lake level. This exclusive camp is situated behind a small beach on the west side of the island. There is a dining area, bar and water sport gazebo, all of timber, thatch and canvas, and all adhering to the principles of eco-architecture.

The Island lies within an private concession area, in turn part of the Lake Malawi National Park, the first freshwater marine reserve in the world. With crystal clear waters and innumerable species of cichlid fish, the National Park offers what is often considered the best freshwater scuba diving in the world. There is no electricity on the island. Domwe Island Lodge works off gas, and all lighting is by means of hurricane lanterns.


The Lodge comprises three large safari tents tucked into the lush foliage. Each tent is raised on timber decks under thatched roofs. Facilities are not en suite: privately situated dry composter toilets and a bucket-shower suspended from a Baobab tree with fire- warmed water. Each tent has mosquito netting over all openings - Viewing deck overlooking the lake and a hammock.
