This town lies on the Shire river and has a busy market, shops and happy atmosphere. The Lake Malawi Museum is also in the town of Mangochi.
Mangochi was once an important anti-slaving centre and later a colonial administrative town. A colonial monument to Queen Victoria stands near the modern and scenic Bakili Muluzi bridge overlooking the river is a memento of Lake Malawi’s rich history, a Hotchkis Gun, from the British Gunboat Guendolin used in Britain’s first naval victory of World War 1.
