Consider combining a lakeside holiday on the Lake of Stars in Malawi with a safari adventure in the nearby Liwonde National Park where the big game can be encountered. Malawi offers a unique twist on this popular African holiday trend so that you get the best of beach and bush accommodation in this warm heart of Africa country.

We recommend Pumalani Lake Lodge set within Lake Malawi National Park on the west side of the Nankumba Peninsula, the embodiment of grandiose luxury and serenity. Find this splendid lodge perched on a hillock affording sweeping panoramas of the lake. Each of the 10 villas is uniquely designed by a Dutch architect who ensured they blended into their own bit of the lake shore at Pumulani, an ideal destination choice for adventure travellers into Africa who want to snorkel and scuba dive.
