The Lodge

Imagine a cove so remote, so exquisitely untouched, that no road leads there…


Zulunkhuni River Lodge


Between Nkhata Bay and Chitimba is the least developed stretch of coastline on the Malawi lake shore. This area is populated by tiny fishing communities, often cut off from the rest of the country with access only by boat. This is due to the unique topography of steep forested escarpments and roaring waterfalls which make the area a road builder’s nightmare and an ecologist’s paradise.

Zulunkhuni River Lodge is an eco-lodge set within this paradise.
