Lakeshore International Conference Centre is situated in the Lake District of Mangochi in the southern part of Malawi, the warm heart of Africa. It is situated just a few meters from the soft sandy beaches of Sunbird Nkopola Lodge: the premier beachside resort on the south — western shores of Lake Malawi.
Sunbird Nkopola Lodge
Sunbird Nkopola Lodge, a property of Sunbird Tourism Limited, is one of the very best resorts from which to enjoy the attractions of the historic and remarkably beautiful Lake Malawi. From the Lodge’s beaches, across the lake, one can view some of the most awe-inspiring sunrises and stunning views in Africa. The lodge offers guests a wide range of local and international cuisine in its Mbira restaurant, 15 meters from the lake beaches and a variety of drinks and snacks from its elevated Malindi bar with clear and dazzling view of Lake Malawi.
The Conference Centre is 24 kilometers from Mangochi Boma and 40 kilometers from the Monkey Bay Habour, probably the largest port on Lake Malawi. Lilongwe, Malawi’s Capital City, and the Commercial City of Blantyre are at an equidistance (220 kilometers) from the Lakeshore International Conference Centre.
The Mangochi district and the Yao people native to this part of the country enrich Malawi’s history. The Yao date as far back as the pre-colonial era when Mangochi was once named the Fort Johnston district. This district boarders Mozambique and the fort was meant to protect British interests from advancing Portuguese on the Mozambican side.
The Lakeshore International Conference Centre is surely one of the premier conference destinations in Malawi and the region as a whole. This picturesque piece of architecture is perched in a tranquil setting at the base of Nkopola hill, near the friendly fishing village of Chipoka, and amidst exquisite surroundings. It is a state-of-the-art, multifaceted and purpose built conference facility suited for the needs of both international and local conference and banqueting groups.
