Njaya Lodge, Nkhata Bay Malawi

By paulnorrish | Njaya Lodge opened for business in 1993. The lodge was built and developed from scratch on what was originaly a maize field on a steep hill overlooking the clear blue waters of Lake Malawi. Over the years it has become more than just a tourist business. Njaya is a labour of love and we like to think a 'work in progress' as well as an established part of the community. As well as a beautiful and welcoming place for people to have a wonderful holiday or a stopover en-route through Malawi, the lodge has become a catalyst for local and international charity initiatives. Quite simply a place that actively sets out to help the local population, and a place to do tourism differently...........
