Owned and managed by Taffy and Jenny, Norman Carr Cottage is a wonderful Lake Malawi retreat with only eight cottage-style rooms in the Namakoma Bay on the southern lakeshore. Norman Carr Cottage is famous for its huge four poster beds and uniquely designed outside bathrooms with its outdoor showers.
It offers boat trips, sunset cruises as well as delicious home cooked meals in their beachside restaurant. The local staff are a huge part of Norman Carr Cottage and will serve your dinner, chat with you on the sunset cruise and throw fish for the eager fish eagles.
This lakesides retreat of the legendary Norman Carr, who pioneered walking safaris in the Luangwa valley, is a little piece of paradise! The emphasis is on quiet relaxation, good food and nothing that may be a vexation to the spirit. Meals are taken on the open beachside deck and the ambience for the evening meal is created with warm candle light. The lodge consists of 8 charming rooms. Six front executive suites facing the beach, and a two bedroom family cottage at the back. The rooms are fresh and airy with 4 poster king size beds, crisp white percale linen and simple hand crafted African decor.
The abundant bird life wakes you every morning, the cries of the fish eagles are heard all day and the giant eagle owls guard the night. Protected from the south wind and in a calm and gentle bay, Norman Carr Cottage is a home away from home.
