Nkopola Lodge, Lake Malawi

Nkopola Lodge on the shores of Lake Malawi was the first lodge/hotel which I managed as the ‘in charge’ way back in the 70’s when I was young and green! Not eco green either! What a great experience it was and what a wonderful location. Even in the days of Kamuzu Banda we were ‘where it was at’ and judging from a recent press announcement I saw (below) it is still the case. Water skiing, fishing, mini-sailing or just swimming in the lake……daily…..just imagine the life!

“We are proud to announce that we have once again partnered with Sunbird and will be bringing Lake of Stars to the amazing Nkopola Lodge. The venue is situated on the lakeshore road, 22km north of the town of Mangochi in the southern region of Malawi.

There is a huge range of accommodation in the area, from five star resorts to backpacker lodges, camping and guesthouses.

To book your accommodation and arrange transport to the festival please get in touch at festivaltravel@lakeofstars.org

As well as announced acts Peter Mawanga and Skeffa Chimoto, a host of artists from Malawi, South Africa and the UK will be performing by the lake this September. Our partnership with Proflight Zambia will also allow us to fly some of the best talent in from Zambia, all to be announced very soon.

Hope to see you this September at the festival that Metro has called one of the best three African music festivals for 2014 and that CNN included in their seven African music festivals you really have to see!”
