Blue Zebra Island Lodge

Discover Blue Zebra Island Lodge

Set on Nankoma Island, Blue Zebra Island Lodge falls within the spectacular Lake Malawi National Park. Take-in dazzling scenery, enjoy exciting activities and discover a colourful array of fish and bird life. While exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site there's the chance to see Lake Malawi's endemic cichlid: a colourful fish, their brightly coloured scales provide a vibrant display.

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.
