With only 6 rooms and a family cottage, Norman Carr Cottage retains that small lodge feel and the owner Taffy is always on hand to recommend activities or sit back and recount stories with you about his adventures in Africa. Evening and morning boat trips on the lodge boat Alfie provide wonderful opportunities for snorkelling, swimming, feeding the fish eagles and a perfect platform for sipping Malawi gin and tonic as the sunsets over the lake. While the fishermen set off in their dugouts to search for their nights' catch, dinner is served on the beach with the sound of the waves just metres away. Rooms are designed by the owners and the unique outdoor bathrooms and huge double beds make guests feel thoroughly spoilt!
