Pumulani is situated on the Westside of the Nankumba Peninsula in the South end of Lake Malawi – romantically called "The Lake of Stars". The Nankumba Peninsula is recognised as one of the most beautiful shores of the Lake and borders Lake Malawi National Park. This Park was established in order to protect the cichlid fish unique to the area. In 1984 the park was designated a World Heritage Site.
The central dining and bar area is high above with an expansive deck leading to spectacular views. The infinity swimming pool is on a lower terraced deck whilst the lake shore bar offers light snacks as well as refreshments. The ten villas are built up the hillside and are individual in shape and style but all have a spacious bedroom, bathroom and extensive sitting area. The front sliding doors open onto the deck - elevated above the ground giving optimal views. Privacy, space and a sense of well-being are key elements.
Guests can simply relax in the beautiful and tranquil scenery or enjoy the many activities on offer. These include snorkelling, kayaking, waterskiing, fun tube, wake boarding, sailing, fishing and scuba diving. For those who want to get acquainted with true African life we offer village walks. Birdwatchers will be in paradise - there is an abundance of birds on both the lake shore beach and gardens as well as the hillside woodland. At the end of the day, guests can enjoy Africa's most spectacular sunsets from the pool on the upper terrace, from the beach or on board our dhow. This twelve metre wooden boat has been handcrafted by local inhabitants of Likoma Island.
The lodge is part of Robin Pope Safaris, one of the finest safari companies in Africa. With high standards and friendly service guaranteed, Pumulani is the perfect location for a relaxing beach holiday, or a magical place to unwind after a wildlife safari.
