Pumulani Lodge, Lake Malawi

The explorer David Livingstone called it ‘The Lake of Stars’. Had he explored Pumulani, he’d have pronounced it the Lake’s brightest star.

What makes Pumulani so brilliant? It overlooks the sparkling waters of Lake Malawi, for a start. Its hillside setting will give you a perfect view of the sandy beach at your feet and beyond – across the turquoise waters towards the far horizon.

Then there is Pumulani itself. As well as having the setting, the facilities and luxuries that make it a prime destination in its own right, this idyllic African beach lodge makes the ideal spot for a between-safaris break.

Explore the marine life of the lake, laze on soft sand, experience the thrill of watersports, indulge in fine cuisine…it’s all yours at Pumulani.
