Blue Zebra Island Lodge - Lake Malawi

By Anouk Zijlma
Africa Travel Expert,
One of my favorite places on earth is Lake Malawi and the Blue Zebra Island Lodge is the perfect spot to enjoy the best the Lake has to offer. The Lodge was built in 2012 on Nankoma Island part of the Marelli Island Archipelago. To get there takes just a quick 2 hour drive form the capital Lilongwe, and then a fun boat ride out to the Island. The Islands are a birders paradise and for those into snorkeling, an unparalleled riot of color in the Lake's clear, warm waters.

Blue Zebra Accommodations[post_ads_2]

Blue Zebra Island Lodge offers exclusive tented en-suite chalets each overlooking the lake with some of the chalets boasting private lake access. The chalets are set in an unspoiled environment so you can enjoy the bush and beach to your hearts content.

The lodge caters for each guest’s needs on a full board basis, with plenty of fresh options, meal choices, and can cater to those with dietary restrictions.

The Fig Tree Bar offers a large selection of drinks and cocktails including some Malawian specialities (try a Malawi Gin and Tonic, or a refreshing Malawi Shandy). Tucked in and around the resort are several comfortable and secluded lounges in which one can relax and admire Lake Malawi's glorious views.

Guests are free to chill at the infinity pool, kayak around the islands or enjoy a game of volleyball as part of the full board package. The lodge also offers free use of snorkeling equipment to view the unique colourful fish that inhabit every inch of the coastline.
