Island Trips

Boadzulu is an island that will leave you with a yearning for a return trip. For those who want to snorkel with the cichlids or feed the fish eagles. The island is 18km from our resort by boat.  A packed lunch can be arranged and of course a cooler box filled with iced beverages is a must.  This activity is on a weather permitted basis.

Our best kept secret has a special way of making you feel like you are in the worlds' biggest aquarium.    There are over 295 species of these colorful rock dwelling fish, also known as Mbuna. Cichlids are endemic to Malawi and are friendly little creatures that won't  mind an underwater selfie with you.  Lake Malawi contains the largest amount of fish species of any lake in the world.

 Boadzulu Island is  rich in bird life.  Fish Eagles nest along the island shoreline and one can hear their echoing  calls on arrival of this beautiful place.  Boadzulu Island is an important nesting area for the white-throated cormorant which number several thousand. Water birds such as the grey heron are a common sight.
