  • Kaya Mawa's philosophy epitomises 'eco-friendly' tourism

Translated from Chinyanja, the local dialect, Kaya Mawa means 'maybe tomorrow'. Providing secluded luxury in traditional surroundings, Kaya Mawa is the ultimate Malawi safari destination for the discerning traveller. It is perhaps one of the last 'undiscovered' islands of Africa. Built by hand, in partnership with the local community, the lodge imaginatively incorporates luxury and simplicity, without intruding on the natural beauty of its surroundings.

There is a range of accommodation from luxurious private villas to comfortable rooms with fantastic beach views, each set apart for privacy. The reception areas consist of a multi level bar and dining room area with beautiful views out over the lake.

Relax on the beach and enjoy a good book, or spend some time enjoying a range of water activities, from sailing to kayaking, windsurfing to waterboarding. There's plenty to do below the waves too. With some of the best fresh water dive sites in the world nearby, a snorkeling or scuba diving expedition is a must.

Malawi International Airport is situated in the capital, Lilongwe. Privately chartered flights run directly to Likoma Island from here, a journey of just 50 minutes. Malawi International also serves Mfuwe in the impressive South Luangwa National Park, bringing these prestigious game reserves within an hours' easy flying time. Malawi, formerly Nyasaland, is one of the least known countries in Central, Southern Africa.

Malawi is known as the “warm heart of Africa” and its shoreline includes beautiful, untouched beaches. Its crystal clear waters provide for an abundance of wildlife including over 800 species of tropical freshwater fish, turtles, otters and varied birdlife.
