Pumulani enjoys a spectacular setting on the unspoilt western shore of the Nankumba Peninsula. The lodge is surrounded by Lake Malawi National Park – a World Heritage Site – where hundreds of species of fish, including rare and colourful cichlids, swim in the clear blue water.
Situated on the shores of Lake Malawi.
Accommodation and facilities:
Accommodation is comprised of ten individually-designed villas spread out along a lush hillside overlooking the lake. Each villa boasts a large bedroom, a spacious living area and a private deck with lake view. Their distinctive grass roofs reflect the heat of the African sun while the simple and elegant interiors ensure comfort and privacy. Each of the villas is different, varying in size from a generous 125 square metres up to 175 square metres. Each has a large bedroom, a comfortable sitting area and a well equipped bathroom with bathtub, double shower and twin sinks. The gently curving lines of the villas reflect the patterns of the lake, while interior design details are inspired by the surrounding nature – the beach, the flora and the marine life. The bedrooms open out onto private decking where guests can enjoy the morning sun, while the lounge areas have sliding doors that give access to a private deck with stunning lake views.
Guests can relax on the sandy beach or at the stylish infinity pool. For those seeking activity, there is waterskiing, sailing, diving, wakeboarding, kayaking, snorkelling, fishing and birdwatching.
At sunset you can take a scenic cruise on a traditional wooden dhow, a 40ft sailing boat handbuilt by local craftsmen. This is the perfect way to experience the beauty of Lake Malawi, described by the explorer David Livingstone as The Lake of Stars.
