Recently a number of guests enjoyed Lake Malawi National Park around Cape Maclear hiking up the hill behind Danforth Lodge to enjoy the incredible views. Lake Malawi National Park was listed a UNESCO World Heritage site 30 years ago for its global importance for biodiversity conservation http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/289.
The views over the bay and the expanse of the lake are breath taking and it is fun to spot our yacht Mufasa, Cedar Wood Ferry Shenzi and swimming pool from up there.
Back at the lake, the sparkling waters are gradually warming up again after the winter and are perfectly refreshing on the now hotter days. One of our guests spontaneously decided to learn diving and passed his PADI Open Water Diver with flying colours. We hope he will find plenty of opportunity to practice his new skill and maybe even comes back to Lake Malawi one day to dive our various sites.
And last but not least, congratulations are in order: a young couple who had been staying with us already for a few nights went out kayaking to Otter Point on their last afternoon. And came back engaged! Needless to say the happy occasion was celebrated with a bottle of champagne in the evening. We wish them a lifetime full of happiness!
Wonderful, relaxing, amazing! Excellent food and service. Snorkeling off Thumbi Island magnificent! Sunsets never disappoint.

We brought our family here after 8 days amazing experiences on safari in South Africa - so Danforth had a lot to live up to!! Well, we had an amazing time - water sports great- our youngest to our oldest (7 - 11 year old) could water ski and snorkel by the end of our stay. Kate, Dean and Eva - fab. Thank you Michelle for the yoga. All 10 of us loved being here. Thanks also to your lovely local staff.
