Our Backpackers

Funky's Story

Growing up in Malawi, Allen and Mike spent their childhoods at the lake. Friends would visit and would always be amazed at the beauty and fun to be found. These visits sparked a dream in them, to one day run a backpackers lodge on the shore and share their home with many more.

Years later, and a few Greens along the way, the Funky Cichlid was born with an ethos of joy and a love for their home, Malawi.

The Funky Cichlid is now the perfect place for adventurers to unwind and have a whole lot of fun! Come and join us…
