On the banks of Lake Malawi, Nkhotakota is the oldest settlement in Malawi and was once a center for the slave trade. The fig tree under which Dr. Livingstone preached against slavery can still be seen. The village can be visited on a very long day trip from Lilongwe or when driving along the lakeshore road. Stop at Nkhotakota Pottery to see the elegant range of ceramic dinner services on sale there, and enjoy the cafe that serves up cakes and fresh coffee. 80 mi/130 km northeast of Lilongwe.
