Where to stay in Mangochi

About Mangochi

Mangochi is a lively resort town set at the southern tip of Lake Malawi. Once a colonial defence post known as Fort Johnston, today Mangochi lures holidaymakers in search of sand and sunshine. Swaying palms and street stalls laden with fresh coconuts give the town a laid-back, tropical feel.

Things to do

Mangochi is a gateway to some of the best lakeside resorts in Africa. From laid-back luxury to absolute opulence, you’ll find resorts for every occasion. Most feature beautifully designed bungalows set in lush gardens, complete with your own private beaches.

Stroll around the Mangochi town centre to see beautifully preserved colonial architecture built by British settlers. Peer into the magnificent Catholic Cathedral and gaze up at the Queen Victoria clock tower built in the 20th century.

Lake Malawi Museum charts the rich history and heritage of Mangochi and Lake Malawi. Marvel at colonial guns and check out a scale model of the Gwendolen, a famous British gunboat. Other exhibits spotlight the ethnic traditions of indigenous Malawi people.

Mangochi is peppered with restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy traditional Malawi food. Hauled in from Lake Malawi, fried chambo is a local delicacy served in a spicy gravy. It’s often accompanied by creamy corn porridge known as nsima. For dessert, enjoy soft sweet potato cookies served with coconut cream.

Mangochi is a gateway to Lake Malawi National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that protects cobalt-blue bays and jungle-covered mountains. Crystalline water and vibrant underwater ecosystems make Mangochi a world-class snorkelling and scuba destination while kayaking trips offer a chance to explore hidden offshore islands.

Getting around

Taxis are a quick and comfortable way to get around Mangochi. Local buses are also a good way to get around. Lilongwe International Airport is a 3.5-hour drive away.
