A charter flight from Mfuwe via Lilongwe will take you to Likoma Island in the middle of Lake Malawi. Kaya Mawa represents the best that the lake has to offer in secluded luxury. Kaya Mawa means 'maybe tomorrow' which fits perfectly into the lifestyle there, it's an amazing escape in itself either before or after your safari.

There are 4 houses (2 family and 2 standard) with plenty of activities to enjoy both water, and land based. As with any remote island hide-away you will want to put plenty of time aside for simply lapping up the beauty and serenity that surrouds you.

The houses:

Madimba - at the far end of the Kaya Mawa beach lies a grand house. A huge bedroom with a mezzanine sundowners spot, twin showers and a bath with a view over the deck to the pool or relax in the sitting room with a private bar. What more could you want?

Mainja is a two bed roomed house with a Tanzania style seating area in the middle. Sit and relax or cool off in the beautiful plunge pool with views across to Honeymoon Island. Mainja is ideal for a family break or even friends staying together.

The family houses:

Yofu - wanting to stay as a family? Yofu is an ideal chalet with two separate rooms enough for a family of four. Nestled into the back of the beach partially hidden by a large mango tree, perfect for families wanting to spend as much time as possible on the beach and in the lake.

Ulissa, Kaya Mawa's second family beach chalet. Big enough for a family of 5. A two roomed house with an interconnecting bathroom. The main room looks down across the beach straight into the lake. The other room perfect for children can fit two single beds with space for another that hangs from the roof leading out on to a shaded terrace.
