Makokola Retreat is located just north of Mangochi, on the palm fringed southern shore of Lake Malawi and is the perfect place to relax.

Magical natural green gardens reveal spacious beach villas and rooms perched along the shores of Southern Lake Malawi.  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.  This showpiece property captures the essence of African design, culture and tradition.

Water Sports available include parasailing, catamarans, dinghies, snorkelling, water skiing.  Sunset Cruises are popular around Bird Island, and the Golf course is a par 3, 9 hole course.

Excursions can be organised to the National Park, Zomba Plateau, Mua Mission or Fishing Village. Alternatively relax in the spa with five treatment rooms hidden in the lush gardens..
