Accommodation is comfortable and varies between a tented chalet, two family tents, 4 luxury chalets and 5 safari chalets - which are tailored to those with an interest in water sports. One of the family tents provides direct access to the lake while the tented chalet is made for couples, with room for 2 adults, a king size bed and views of the lake.

The activities based around Lake Malawi are one of the main reasons to visit and Blue Zebra doesn't disappoint. Get as close as possible to life under the waves with scuba diving; there are a number of dive spots dotted around the island and both beginners and experienced divers can have a go. Kayaking, snorkelling and boat trips are also on offer, while birding provides a constant delight with African fish eagles quite common.
