Fisherman's Rest - Accommodation, Tours & Community Projects set in beautiful countryside overlooking the Great Rift Valley, Blantyre, Malawi

Welcome to Fisherman’s Rest, set in a magnificent fifty-acre private park on the edge of the escarpment, overlooking the Great Rift Valley. Fisherman’s Rest is the perfect opportunity to work alongside local people and get stuck in with projects.​ 

Accommodation

The Lodge - Our Lodge is beautifully situated in an acre of gardens with panoramic views of the Shire Valley.  The Lodge is furnished with three main bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large lounge, dining room, kitchen, a secluded khonde area and a small spare room that can be used as a bedroom for larger groups. It is the perfect place for a group or team to enjoy quality time together, to relax and to use as a base to get involved in community work in the surrounding area.

The Poolside Cottage - The poolside cottage is the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful break with your family, or to use as a base to engage with community work in the local area. With two bedrooms, a kitchen, a lounge area and a bathroom, as well as a sheltered Khonde area, there is space to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Fisherman’s Rest. The cottage is situated next to our pool where you can enjoy panoramic views of southern Malawi, even glimpsing the border with Mozambique on a clear day! We offer the poolside cottage on a self-catering, bed and breakfast, half-board and full-board basis. The cottage can comfortably sleep up to six people.

The Woodland Cottage - The Woodland Cottage is in a beautiful secluded location within our game reserve, and is a short walk from the pool and the main Lodge. Relax in the company of many varied species of birds as well as the resident impala, duiker and nyala who are frequently seen browsing, grazing and relaxing in the surrounding bush land. The cottage is ideal for a peaceful retreat or a team engaging with project work. The cottage is furnished with five en-suite rooms and a living area complete with tea and coffee making facilities. It is Ideal for individuals as well as groups.

The Bush Hides - We have two Bush Hides. The South Hide is built into the hillside and offers a beautiful secluded hideaway located in our private game reserve, overlooking the Shire Valley. The North Hide is closer to the pool and Lodge but set back a little off the beaten track. The hides can each sleep two people with either a double bed or twin bed setup. They both have a peaceful outdoor viewing platform to sit and enjoy the beauty and harmony of rural Malawi.

Our swimming pool is available to all our residents. From its location, two thousand feet up the escarpment, it offers magnificent views over the Shire Valley.

The Tea House - The Tea House offers a self-contained space for teams and large groups, which can be used as a base for engaging with a wide range of projects and activities. It comprises of five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a separate toilet, a kitchen, lounge and khonde. It has its own private car park and is set within a large garden, which overlooks the Shire Valley. We offer the Tea House on a self-catered to fully catered basis.

Madzulo Village - In 2014 we upgraded our campsite area by building five traditional style huts. This small replica homestead is known as Madzulo Village (Sunset Village) and can host up to 26 people. It is ideal for groups on a budget who would like to experience rural living. Drinking water is sourced at a water pump and boiled on site. Small out-houses provide composting toilet facilities and bucket showers. Set amongst a forest of beautiful trees and outstanding views it is an experience not to be missed.

Activities

Within the nature reserve, there are paths and tracks to follow as well as places to rest, relax and reflect. The park is filled with indigenous trees and plants and home to a multiplying population of antelope. Outside of the park, there are walks with spectacular views leading through countryside and villages. Our neighbourhood is delightful and our neighbours a pleasure to meet.

Fisherman’s Rest directs tours and holidays in and around Malawi as well as other countries in Africa for individuals, groups, school parties and other organisations. We work hard to create a holiday that will leave you fulfilled, enable you to encounter our local communities, experience the wonder of Malawi and leave wide eyed with wonder!

Whether you’d like to tour the south of Malawi, observe the wildlife in the numerous wildlife parks, engage in community projects and activities, dabble in a little luxury, or any mixture of the above, Fisherman’s Rest will ensure that the best of Malawi is available to you.
