Sailing on the lake is possible with Mufusa, a superb yacht that can sleep up to 8 and is fully equipped for all your needs, with a dive platform and two bathrooms.

The lodge itself comprises 8 en-suite rooms that boast views of the lake or Thumbi West Island. All rooms are air conditioned and designed with cool, relaxing colour. Cuisine found at the lodge is very tasty and dining is al fresco. There are plenty of opportunities to relax, with an infinity pool and lush green lawn.

Review of Danforth Yachting


Complete contrast and a welcome rest from the exertion of safari drives. A relaxing time a little sailing swimming and snorkelling. Accommodation very comfortable...even a hairdryer!
