Mangochi, Malawi

The greatest concentration of lodges and hotels on Lake Malawi is on the southern lakeshore between Mangochi and Monkey Bay. Along this stretch are half a dozen or so hotels, some with adjacent camping sites. They vary from sophisticated properties, with golf course and airstrip, to more simple resorts. All have excellent uncrowded beaches of golden sand and offer a range of activities on the Lake. These hotels are all low rise and quite separate from each other, giving the visitor a sense of privacy and isolation. Their locations, just off the M10 road, make them readily accessible from Lilongwe or Blantyre. Most impressive are The Makokola Retreat, complete with its own Lake Spa, and its neighbour, Sunbird Nkopola Lodge. Newest and closest to Mangochi town is Zaburi Beach by Serendib.
