We spent a couple of nights in a fitted tent, and this camp is by far one of the nicest places I have ever been. The scenery is truly fenomenal, everything is eco-friendly, and the staff are among the warmest people I have met in Malawi.
We were lucky enough to share the island with only one other couple, making the back-to-nature experience unforgettable.
Although we gladly spent our money on this location (and we don't regret it), we do feel that it was overpriced.
Basically, you already pay a huge amount of money just to stay there for one night, but that money doesn't include anything else other than the fitted tent.
You pay extra for the boat to get there (and even more if you use the kayak), you pay way too much for a drink, you pay extra for snorkelling, you pay too much for a kayak, etc, etc. And although the place is self-catering (so bring your own food), you need to pay 35 (?) dollars if you want the chef to prepare the food that you already bought yourself (!!!). Of course we did not use this option, that's just ridicilous. All of this adds up to a sum of money that is actually too much in comparison to what you actually get...
I'm glad we did it, but I wouldn't do it again unless prices become more reasonable.More
