OUR CAPE MACLEAR COTTAGE
Cape Cottage is Kayak Africa’s own beachfront accommodation in the village of Cape Maclear. It is a beautifully built reed and brick thatched cabana right on the beach within Kayak Africa’s reception compound. The cottage is open plan and features a queen-size bed and a double bunk: ideal for a couple or a family of four. There is a fully-equipped kitchenette and a bathroom en suite with a shower and toilet. On the front deck is a dining table and chairs overlooking the lake; perfect for al fresco dinners. A converted wooden boat projects from the deck to form an ideal sundowner or stargazing spot. Many local restaurants and bars are within walking distance, otherwise you can self-cater, or hire a chef from us and have your meals on your deck. However you choose to do it, this is lakeshore accommodation at its best!

Malawi offers exceptional opportunities for active multi-sport tours through a secure and real African landscape.
Mountain-bike the limitless footpaths and tracks that criss-cross the south-central African bush; hike the giant granite massif of Mulanje Mountain – at 3001m the highest peak in south-central Africa; then kayak among the islands and peninsulas of the Lake Malawi National Park.
Sea kayak safaris and small-boat cruises to the places between the places that tourists normally go. Do not expect a hotel!
That said, it is not about suffering. The boat-supported trips are for any camping enthusiast or inquisitive sort; while the kayak-only trips offer fit or experienced paddlers 250km of the real thing on the best sea-kayaking route in Southern Africa!
