  • Returning to Ngala Beach Lodge Malawi

    Back from another trip to Ngala Beach, as usual Trish, Dan and the staff made me feel very welcome. It doesn’t matter whether it is a holiday on my own or with the family, it’s a great place to relax and enjoy the weather, food, beautiful grounds, clean beach and water of the lake. Trish and Dan have invested in many improvements since my last stay including new kayaks and told me they are hoping for a new larger boat for trips on the lake shortly. Pizza night is a must, home made and fresh from the wood burning oven. BBQ’s on the beach. If you haven’t booked for Christmas and New Year and they have space, it’s a great way to spend the holiday season, I would highly recommend you book.
