Guest House

The Friendly Gecko Guest House offers you the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful Lake Malawi and experience authentic Malawian village life.
Our guest house is located in the village of Lifuwu, right on the shores of Lake Malawi. We are only a 20-minute car ride, or a beautiful hour walk, along the Lake to the nearby Senga Bay resorts. As we are located in closest proximity to Lake Malawi from Lilongwe, we offer an alternative to the busy and touristy Cape Maclear or Nkhata Bay. Take a vacation by the lake on a budget and visit nearby resorts and attractions – go for a quick morning hike or go kayaking and watch the sunset, and return to a reasonably priced and quiet place at the end of the day.
We offer an affordable and genuine adventure for guests looking for a culturally enriching experience. Explore the community – visit the local market, rice fields, or the line of boats along the shore, and play with the resident children in the lake. Additionally, guests can visit our community projects within walking distance to the guest house to gain insight into Malawi’s educational and health care systems.
