Lake Malawi is the third largest and deepest lake in Africa. It's a freshwater lake and is about 500 meters above sea level. Because it is so large, it touches different regions and districts in Malawi. Some of the lake is part of the Lake Malawi National Park. Many different fish live in the lake, making it also a place for research.

While delicious foods like this chicken and chips, or fried potatoes are available at Nkopora, many people visiting Malawi like to try tasting a rare fish called chambo, which is only found in Malawi.

In the morning, the water gets warm from the sun, so people like to swim early in the day.

Visitors to Nkopora can take a boat ride to explore the lake. Everyone on board is advised to take a life jacket.

For those who are tired of beach soccer, there's volleyball, too.
