Lukwe means ‘a place of natural beauty’ and is perched on the side of an idyllic valley, where the Manchewe and Kazichi Falls plunge 80 metres below into a deep and untamed gorge.
The view from the deck at the main lodge, where meals are served and dreams are dreamt, crosses a valley with Nyika plateau in the back drop, leads you to Lake Malawi and takes you across the great expanse of water, into Tanzania and the Kipengere mountain range. Lukwe offers tranquil lodging and camping on 5 hectares of Brachystygia and Miombo woodland.
Meals are served under the stars or near a crackling fire in the colder months, when the clouds roll up the valley. The lodge is solar powered and wood fuelled. Drinks are cooled by the sun and we serve home baked bread and meals from our wood burning stoves.
Lukwe truly is an ecological tourism site in Northern Malawi. The concept of integrating tourism, sustainable living, free range food and community service at Lukwe goes back to 1996, when Lieza and friends first set up camp in the bush at Lukwe.x`
