Found on the shores of the magnificent Cape Maclear in Lake Malawi, is the superb Gecko Lounge. The area allows you to escape the madness of everyday life, with all its routines and frantic run arounds. Here you can relax in a hammock, under the shady trees and drift off to the sound of the lake just meters away.
Accommodation at Gecko Lounge: Gecko Lounge has a wide range of accommodation options from self contained, self catering chalets through to economy beds in our "reed room".
Gecko Lounge offers you plenty of rest in the fabulous self catering chalets, each with a double bed, a bunk bed for extra space, an en-suite bathroom with a toilet and a hot shower, table fans for those warm days and mosquito nets for the evenings. The lodge also offers extra rooms known as Baobab and Acacia, which are equipped with en-suite facilities as well as lovely lake views. For a large group, Gecko Lounge has shared accommodation, which consists of 2 bunk beds and 2 twin bed cubicles with all the necessary facilities.
Further accommodation is available at our sister lodge, Tuckaways which is 75 metres away along the beach. Tuckawats has 5 beachfront chalets each sleeping two. These are not en-suite but have excellent ablutions immediately behind.
Guests of Gecko Lounge can create a scrumptious meal in the comfort of their chalet, with its fully equipped kitchen, enjoy the sound of nature and the lovely smell of your meal being prepared. Enjoy a picnic out on the gorgeous lawn or on the beach while the children are playing in the water.
Our restaurant is open from 730 am until 9pm serving a variety of fresh foods including the famous Gecko Lounge Pizzas which are acclaimed throughout Malawi.
With the beach practically at your doorstep there is ample to entertain yourselves with, including boating trips to Thumbi and around, snorkeling or scuba diving in the crystal clear waters and discovering another world, craft shopping at the local village, mountain biking, kayaking on the still waters or venturing out on a guided village walk and hike.
