The Norman Carr Cottage

Follow the history of Norman Carr as he started his journey in Malawi as elephant control officer in Zomba and see where he wrote his books.

We follow his tradition of keeping things quiet and simple. A place to get away from it all - no wifi, tv, airconditioners, room service. 

Lovely fires on the beach, boat trips on Alfie, the restored boat that was build for Sir Aflred Beit from the Beit foundation in 1951 - 70 years old this year 2021!

Awaken to the call of the African Fish Eagle for another glorious day at the charming Norman Carr Cottage situated along the sandy beaches on the southern shores of  Lake Malawi. This idyllic romantic retreat is right on the beach tucked away under a canopy of large indigenous trees, a perfect hideaway of sun-drenched beaches and turquoise waters.

Our renowned cuisine offers full catered home-cooked meals that are enjoyed in the open  beach dining area overlooking the sparkling waters of Lake Malawi.
