Welcome to Nkhotakota

Today the town is strung out over 4km between the busy highway and the lake. It breaks a journey along the lakeshore, but don’t expect much action. If you do arrive on the ferry or stumble from a bus, there are a couple of historic sights and lakeside lodges, but if you can it's better to continue straight to the nearby Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve.
