Pumulani is situated at the south end of Lake Malawi. The main area of the camp, restaurant and bar are set high above the Lake with magnificent views. The beauty of this lake is indescribable. The sparkling turquoise and deep blue colours shimmering over the water, the clear blue skies and the panoramic vistas truly make you feel like you are in paradise. David Livingstone named Lake Malawi ‘Lake of Stars’ for good reason. According to experts this lake is home to more native fish species than any other lake in the world.
The ten villas are situated in such a way that they blend in completely with the natural surroundings and the cooling grass roofs reflect the African sun. Each villa has its own distinct character. The villas consist of a bedroom, sitting area and bathroom with double showers, double basins and toilet. The bedroom and sitting area open out on to an elevated deck.
The lake is ideal for water sports such as snorkelling, kayaking, waterskiing, diving or fishing. You can also set sail on this impressive lake on the traditional wooden dhow. A highlight is also a visit to the local African village.
The flora and fauna surrounding the lodge is amazing. It is a bird watchers paradise with over 300 different bird species. A popular combination is a walk along the trail heading through the hills, finishing at a secluded beach and kayaking back to Pumulani along the shoreline of the National Park.
