Lake Malawi | Malawi

Kaya Mawa

With its almost supernatural vibe, there is nowhere else on earth quite like Kaya Mawa. Hidden away on Likoma Island in Lake Malawi, at Kaya Mawa you will be transported into a world of simple pleasures. Embraced by the warmth and hospitality of the enchanting Malawian staff you will enjoy timeless luxury and only the best of modern conveniences. “Kaya Mawa” translates as “Maybe Tomorrow”… the Likoma Island version of mañana… without the urgency.

Each of Kaya’s eleven rooms, and private villa, is unique and offers something very special. Serene and secret decks for sunbathing or romantic dinners; secluded lakeside chalets with private lounges. You may find yourself showering under the stars, taking a midnight dip in your private pool or simply walking hand-in-hand after moonlit supper on the beach.

If all the relaxation is too much, your days can be filled with everything from stand-up-paddle boarding, kayaking, kitesurfing, waterskiing, sailing and quad-biking; plus a full PADI dive school. And as the sun goes down on another perfect day enjoy a massage at the spa, nestled in the rocks on the lake, and have the last of your cares soothed away as you wonder to yourself “Shouldn’t I be leaving?…maybe tomorrow”

Time your visit with Malawi’s seasons

Broadly speaking, Malawi has two seasons: dry and green. The dry season is from May to October. Within this, May to August is a cooler time of year with bright sunshine and fresh evenings.

Temperatures start to rise in September and remain high throughout the rainy season, which runs from November to April. The heaviest rains are often in December, January and February.

Because of Malawi's varied landscape, regional variations in weather are significant. The lower lying lake shore areas are warmer all year round, while temperatures in the highlands are refreshingly cool in the day with chilly evenings; particularly in winter.
