See it all

At Mango Drift, we have a range of accommodations to suit all. We offer 2 types of chalets: luxury hill chalets and beach chalets. Our two luxury chalets are slightly set back on the hillside overlooking the lake. The chalets are equipped with private bathrooms and have spacious and secluded verandas, the best place to watch the beautiful sunset over Lake Malawi! On the white sandy beaches of Likoma Island, we created 5 beautiful beach chalets, just 20 meters from the lake! Believe us, you won’t leave us without having gone for a romantic midnight swim.


For the backpackers looking for a truly unique experience, we have a 7-bed dormitory, with mosquito nets, hot showers and clean toilets. We have backpackers from all walks of life and places to share a drink with at the bar. 


Do you want to be as close to nature as possible and be able to see the star-blazing night-sky straight from your bed? Then you might just prefer to camp on the beach itself! We have more than enough beach to go around! 


Each room has 3 pinned plug sockets and fitted mosquito nets. There is also a safe located at Mango if you feel the need or want to lock any valuables away.





The En-suites are private chalets with spacious rooms. Overlooking the beach, sit back and relax on your own balcony with a great view of the sunset.

  • $60 per night for single occupancy

  • $70 per night for double occupancy

Mango Drift Dormitory is 100 meters away from the lakeshore, right on the beach, shaded by Mango Trees. 8 beds available all with their own mosquito net and a clean en suite bathroom with hot shower.




Mango Drift has an expansive beach with plenty of space to camp on. There is access to a shower block with two toilets and hot showers … or just jump in the lake! We also have 2 tents to rent for $1 per night if you decide to sleep under the stars!

NOTE: dear guest, if you want self-catering at Mango Drift Camping you need to be fully equipped. We don't have any cooking facilities available and is no possibility to rent equipment/kitchen. Thank you for your understanding!
