Ng'ona Lodge

Ng’ona Lodge is an oasis in the African bush. It is in a tranquil environment on the banks of the Shire River which flows out of Lake Malawi, south to join the Zambezi River in Mozambique.

The lodge is approximately 70 kilometres south west of Blantyre.

We offer 4 chalets (building another 2), double or twin bed with a third bed for one extra person, shower/toilet, tea & coffee facilities, mosquito net, 2 powerful standing (moveable) fans and a big shady veranda. Campsites are available with built braai/grill. Campers are welcome to bring their own food and cook on the braai’s. Toilet/shower facilities are in the main building.

Day visitors are welcome from 7am to 5pm daily. Enjoy our food/drinks and the swimming pool (cover charge applies)

Most resident guests visit Majete Game Reserve which is one and a half kilometres away during their stay. We can arrange game drives in the reserve for Ng’ona residents. You can self-drive, subject to African Parks’ regulations, or you can choose to be driven in a specialist safari vehicle with a guide

The pool is Ng’ona Lodge’s main attraction. It overlooks the river. For many visitors, no other activity is required.

The abundant bird life of Malawi, has stimulated a fulfilling interest in a great number of visitors. You should carry binoculars to enhance your enjoyment of the birds wading or fishing in, or soaring over the hypnotising Shire River.

An early morning walk shows the river at its most serene with the Shire Highlands as a background. What better way to start the day than with a walk and a swim before breakfast?

Our website is up currently being updated. The new one should be live very early in 2023.
