    Had a very pleasant stay in the Nkopola lodge. Manager Ellard Salva was very helpful. Rooms were nice and staff was pleasant. Beautiful buffet breakfast (included). Location on the beach is tropical.

During the rainy season the elephants don't need to be by the river back for water as there is a plentiful supply ...

The centre is dedicated to breeding a greater understanding of Malawi's culture and history amongst both tourists and Malawians. In fact, during my visit there were two large school groups there.
