Nkwichi is proud to introduce Mpasa, our new and superfast Boston Whaler. This newest addition to our fleet can limit the transfer time from Likoma to Nkwichi Lodge to one hour! With sun cover, comfortable benches and seating on the front deck for the more adventurous, it takes up to 6 passengers at a time. The name â€˜Mpasaâ€™ refers to cichlids endemic to Lake Malawi, and Mpasa really is like a fish in Nkwichiâ€™s waters. Want to try? Contact us!
