Club Makakola is situated on the southern shores of Lake Malawi about 30 kms north of the bustling town of Mangochi. Set in ten acres of immaculate gardens with a large white sandy beach front, it has wonderful views over to the lakes' eastern shores and to nearby Boadzulu Island.
The hotel has two swimming pools, a squash court, two tennis courts and a mini soccer field. The brand new Mlambe Golf Club - a nine hole course, beautifully sited adjacent to the hotel in a grove of Baobab trees with spectacular water hazards to provide both experienced and amateur golfers with a challenging and enjoyable course. All water sports are available from fishing to para sailing and diving. Sailing safaris may be organised to the islands in the Lake Malawi National Park, the world's first fresh water conservation area.
Non-motorized water sports are included in the general tariff while several extra activities are available for a small fee payable locally. These include road transfers to visit the scenic Cape Maclear area and boat cruises on the luxurious MV Sunbbird, a motor launch fitted out for comfortable local cruising. The rooms have recently been refurbished with local designs and crafts and the hotel manages to offer the luxury and amenities of a resort style hotel while still being small enough to focus on superb service in a friendly atmosphere.
