Kiboko Safaris, internationally-known for their safaris and their two lodges in Lilongwe; Africa House and Mitengo House, are still operating during the pandemic with social distancing and hygienic measures all put in place. And to avoid contact with others, Kiboko Safaris are also offering guests a stay at their own self-catering cottage with a private beach in Senga Bay. An idyllic private escape to social distance!
Kuwona Cottage, an all-year-round vacation destination on beautiful Lake Malawi, is great for romantic couple’s getaway, to a friend’s weekend or even a work retreat. The cottage has four bedrooms (1 en-suite double Master bedroom, 1 double bedroom and 2 twin bedrooms). All bedrooms have air conditioning and all beds come with box type mosquito nets.
There are two bathrooms with a shower and toilet and a comfortable living room. A fridge freezer, gas stove, and electric stove with oven are present in the kitchen together with all the required cooking equipment, cutlery utensils etc. The cottage has a solar battery system connected to the light switches in case of any power cuts.
Built on some rocks high above the lake with stunning lake views everywhere, the cottage also offers activities down by the shore with kayaks included in the hire of the cottage! Relax on the cottage’s private beach or stay on the comfortable veranda area whilst enjoying the spectacular views and warm weather. Fish eagles are regular visitors of the lush garden compound and more bird spotting can be enjoyed in short walking distance around the area.
Upon request, Kiboko Safaris also offers a full board option at Kuwona Cottage and transfers from Lilongwe to the cottage and back. From the parking to the cottage, guests will have to descend some relatively steep steps to get to this little piece of paradise on the shores of Lake Malawi.
The caretaker and chef Lucius is always happy to assist in preparing meals and he can arrange freshly caught fish from the lake as well as some seasonal vegetables and fruits. The professional staff will make sure that all the guests’ needs are taken care of to make it an unforgettable stay.
Naturally, the health and well-being of all guests and staff members is of the highest priority to Kiboko Safaris. The situation is constantly monitored and all precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are strictly followed.
