Just North of Mangochi, on the palm fringed southern shore of
Lake Malawi; an extraordinary lakeside paradise resort - Club
Makokola - awaits you. Club Makokola is spaciously laid out in
well-tended gardens, but it is the beach that will draw your
attention. The lodge has its own vast expanse of pale sand, dotted
with low palms and thatched sunshades, under which lie sun loungers
with padded cushions. A waiter will take your drinks order and
deliver it to you on the beach.
It is perfect for such water sports as sailing and windsurfing.
While diving and snorkelling are done at a stunning little offshore
island, where tropical fish abound beneath the surface and fish
eagles are ever present above it. The lodge has an enormous
swimming pool 44 metres (143 foot) long and 16 metres (52 feet)
wide. You can get some serious exercise in this pool! Paddle up to
the pool bar for some cool cocktails and ice cold beer.
The resort has 56 rooms set amongst beautifully landscaped
gardens. The rondavel suites facing the beach have a lounge and
large double bedroom with African ethnic interiors and four poster
beds swathed in mosquito nets. Bathrooms are roomy with a shower
and bath. There is a honeymoon suite which has its own discreet
plunge pool. Family rooms are in a new double-story wing
