It all started in 2013, when Thumbi View Lodge took over the oldest accommodation in Cape Maclear. The perfect getaway spot, our charming property features lake-view rooms, as well as caters to the budget backpacker. Best of all? The best breakfast in town is FREE. At Thumbi View Lodge, we’re proud to support the local community. Every guest gets the opportunity to experience true Malawian culture by signing up for locally-guided island tours, or buying curios from our on-site craftsmen. All profits from this go straight back into the community!
