Njaya lodge is set up a short way from the waters edge of Lake Malawi. The accommodation is fairly basic but comfortable enough. The staff were very helpful, especially Dixon, and when we requested fish for dinner then went and sourced some for us. Breakfast...More

hi there thanks for your review and sorry that you really didn't enjoy Njaya. But a few things; You stayed for one night and paid $60 not $120, we don't have rooms at $120 per night. You booked a Garden chalet (@$60 per night) not...More

About
Description
Opened for business on Christmas Day 1993, Njaya Lodge was built as a labour of love in cooperation with the people of our adopted home. In fact, many of the staff who helped build Njaya and make it what it is today, More are still there extending their typical Malawian warmth, humour and character to all our guests. Nestled into the side of a hill, and overlooking magnificent Lake Malawi, we've built a collection of chalets and houses spread over lush gardens and terraces that lead down to beautiful Chikale beach, the only beach in Nkhata Bay. There should be something to fit every budget, from brand new cottages perched over the water, to family houses and garden chalets, all ensuite with four poster mosquito-netted beds, fans and views. "The kind of place you could wake up in one morning and realise that you were supposed to be back at work months ago" from the book, 'Swahili for the Broken Hearted' by Peter More (Bantam Books).
