Our Accomodation

We are proud of the beautiful accommodation we offer here at Sangilo Sanctuary, all of which was painstakingly built from scratch.

Our six tastefully furnished cliff side chalets look out along the peninsula over the Lake Malawi and the mountains of Tanzania and all have their own decked terrace.

We also have the spacious Family Cottage available for larger groups or families, which comfortable sleeps five. And, for those of you on a budget we also offer camping on our secure, shady campsite.

All of our accommodation was designed, by us, to ensure that we could offer our guests the perfect stay. We offer free tea and (real) coffee every morning to all guests staying in our chalets.

We often have special offers and deals on rooms…contact us to find out more.

Our Ensuite Chalets provide guests with a spacious living area, decked out with wonderful hand carved ornate wooden bed frames, window shutters and furniture.

Each ensuite chalet each has a private terrace with comfortable deck chairs, and a magnificent view of Lake Malawi and of the mountains in the distance where you can relax and unwind.

Large, mosquito nets are included with each bed to protect you from mosquitoes at night, and we provide solar powered lighting and electric points for these chalets.

Our standard chalets also come with their own private balcony and deck chairs with a view of the beach, meaning you have a peaceful place to relax away from everyone else. All of our beds come with mosquito nets to keep you safe from mozzies in the night and each of the standard chalets are positioned closed to a shared toilet and shower so that you don’t have to walk far to use the facilities.



If you are travelling as a family or you’re in a larger group and all want to stay together then why not opt for our marvellous Family Cottage? This new addition to Sangilo Sanctuary can easily sleep five guests. It has two large rooms, one living room/bedroom and one large master bedroom as well as a lovely and clean bathroom with a shower.

The Family Cottage also has its very own outdoor sitting area and a large wooden deck where you can relax as a family, looking out over the lake.


$10 per person

If you’re travelling on a budget, or on a camping holiday, then we can offer you a lovely private, shaded campsite to pitch your tent. You can enjoy all of the facilities of our chalet guests including our private beach, plunge pool and our fantastic restaurant and bar.
