Nkhotakota Pottery Lodge
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had a simple beach hut that had a nice shower with hot running water and the beds are fairly comfortable. The huts are on the beach. The property is adorned with lovely paintings depicting the history of the town and its association to the slave trade. Pottery was good fun. And there were plenty of crafts to buy, if your pottery skills are not up to scratch. The beach is unspoilt, (with the addition of the occasional fleet of cattle and the resident chickens) unpretentious and is quite serene. There isn't much food on offer though, but the breakfast was fairly adequate. Good base for pottery, relaxing on the lake or going on organised safari (which we sadly didn't do). Overall a pleasant stay and great value for money.
