Pumulani Lodge

Pumulani is ideally located to fully take advantage of what Lake Malawi offers in terms of activities. They boast their own wooden dhow (traditional sailing boat) used for sunset cruises, the best way to end an African day. Watersports enthusiasts are catered for as guests can snorkel, fish, and sail in the clear waters off the beach at Pumulani. For a small extra cost the lodge also offers waterskiing, wakeboarding, fun tube rides and diving. All non-motorized sports are included in the daily rate. They have a fridge in each villa room stocked with soft drinks and beers

Pumulani can also arrange birding walks and visits to the local village.

Our favourite activity is the morning walk followed by kayaking back to the lodge for breakfast- the pefect way to start the day! And it is included in the price.
