nkwichi lodge, lake niassa, mozambique
Many have traveled to Lake Niassa in between Malawi and Mozambique. beautiful fresh water lake with largest amount of indigenous fish of any lake in the world. the lodge was started by a cool guy from South Africa and has created an amazing, rustic group of chalets on the shores of lake niassa. much of the power is by solar and there is a huge emphasis on renewable energy. amazing dinners on beach and tons of trekking in the bush, not too mention crystal clear water for snorkeling. From Malawi Fly from Lilongwe to Likoma Island , then you'll be taken in a boat across lake to the lodge. about $250 for hour flight to Likoma, $60 for the 40 minute boat ride. the people and villages around are all part of the operation with farmers and cultural emphasis part of the design. the owners empower the locals with education and inclusion in many aspects of the tourism in a responsible way. the stars at night here are like no other place on earth.... believe me! go to this place once. an arduous journey, but it will remain with always. the photo I shot on Likoma island,upon leaving after a week stay, on an airstrip in the grass surrounded by cows and bright eyed children.
