What Visitors Say About Us

Dec 2022

December was my 3rd time to Fish Eagle Bay and this time with my entire family including my brother from overseas from Sweden. We took the two self catering chalets at the bottom of the premises and had a great time for a week. Staff are brilliant, accommodating an always willing to assist wherever they can. The restaurant and bar are fantastic, especially when you feel like not cooking below. We made potjie by the bar as well which allowed us to watch the football. This has become my place to go at the lake from Lilongwe and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Always a pleasure to go there and will be back soon for a long weekend. Great setting and friendly staff always make it a home away from home. Keep up the great work!!!

Despite a few negative reviews – we visited this lodge on 20 June 2022. We found it to be in excellent condition. Trevor who manages the lodge is friendly & could not do enough to help us. There are some rumours amoungst the locals that it had closed down? This is defintely not the case. The rooms are immaculate & the location & setting is outstanding. Included in the very reasonable rate you get free use of the kayaks. I would highly recommend visiting this lodge.
