By entering this competition, you stand a chance to savour an unspoilt corner of real Africa and to see for yourself how responsible tourism supports local people and their timeless surroundings, besides sugar-white ‘’squeaking’ sands, washed by clear fresh water teeming with tropical fish.
NKWICHI Lodge supports The Manda Wilderness Community Trust to ensure that local communities also benefit from the growth of responsible tourism in the region.
The Trust also manages the Manda Wilderness Community Conservation Area, which was created to protect and manage a 120,000 hectare community reserve on the shores of Lake Niassa. The Trust is registered as a UK charity. The Community owned Conservation Area protects 120,000km² of brachystegia forest, savanah, streams and rivers, mountains and freshwater lakeshore.
NKWICHI Lodge employs 59 local staff members, who directly support over 1,000 family members.
The Manda Wilderness Community Trust, in partnership with local communities has built ten schools, a maternity clinic, a maize mill, two church roofs and many bridges in the 16 villages in the area. It also runs a number of community upliftment projects. The Manda Wilderness Agricultural Project has assisted over 350 local farmers and contributed to the improvement of nutrition in the area.
Just your presence helps develop local communities and preserve the natural environment they live in – US$5 is donated to the Manda Wilderness Community Trust for every night you stay.
Arriving at this idyllic location by boat one would never know that a luxury lodge is secluded in the tropical bush. The lodge itself and each of the six chalets have been carefully tucked away in the tree line so that the pristine lakeshore scenery is unspoilt and each chalet is located far enough apart to provide privacy.
