Danforth Yachting brings the South African tradition of excellent, informal and owner-run lodges to Malawi. Situated right on the lakeshore, with warm friendly hosts, and watersports galore, this is ideal for those who want an active beach break in a laid-back setting.
Perfect forActive families.
In the knowHoward and Michelle, owners of Danforth, also own Mufasa, a live-aboard catamaran. For yachties, we’d definitely recommend a night or two on board, exploring some of the lake’s more distant shores.
