The centre of Nkhata Bay is small and home to not more than 2000 people. But there are many villages nearby that make Nkhata Bay the infrastructural centre of up to 20,000 people. Tourism and fishing are the main industries of the town. Nkhata Bay is a lively place, especially on Sundays and Mondays, when people from the islands and remote villages along the lake shore come into town to sell their weekly catch.
Safari Cottage is run by Budget Safari, who offer Malawi and Zambia tours (primarily camping) as set itineraries and on a tailor made basis.
