Pumulani Luxe Lodge on Lake Malawi 9-Dhow sail trip on Lake MalawiMalawi may be a small land-locked country in Africa whose claim to fame in recent times is probably Madonna’s adopting a Malawi orphan. There is of course more to the country, blessed with a natural beauty, although less known for its safaris, compared to her neighbors Kenya and Tanzania. And not having a coast doesn’t stop Malawi to mesmerize with her beautiful beaches on Lake Malawi. Pumulani Lodge is your perfect base to explore her natural assets.

Pumulani offers the perfect mix for a memorable holiday. Enjoy being active or simply relax in the beautiful and tranquil scenery.

Pumulani is situated on the westside of the Nankumba Peninsula in the South end of Lake Malawi. The beauty of this lake is indescribable. The beautiful sparkling colours shimmering over the water, the clear blue skies and the panoramic vistas truly make you feel like you are in paradise. David Livingstone named Lake Malawi ‘Lake of Stars’ for good reason. According to experts this lake is home to more native fish species than any other lake in the world.

The ten villas are situated in such a way that they blend in completely with the natural surroundings and the cooling grass roofs reflect the African sun.

Each villa has its own distinct character. The villas consist of a bedroom, sitting area and bathroom with double showers, double basins and toilet. The bedroom and sitting area open out on to an elevated deck. The sitting area has a coffee/tea corner and a small fridge for cool drinks.

The main area with restaurant and bar is set high above the Lake with magnificent views. Meals are served either on the beach, in the gardens, in the restaurant or on your private deck.

At Pumulani we offer many activities. The lake is ideal for water sports such as snorkelling, kayaking, waterskiing, diving or fishing. Sail the impressive lake on our traditional wooden dhow. We also offer village trips for those who like to experience true African village life.

The flora and fauna surrounding the lodge is amazing. It is a bird watchers paradise with over 300 different bird species. A popular combination is a walk along the trail heading through the hills, finishing at a secluded beach and kayaking back to Pumulani along the shoreline of the National Park.

Families are most welcome in our two bedroom family villa.

The Lake combines excellently with our safari camps in South Luangwa.
