Lakowe Lakes 2.0 | An Overnight Experience

Lakowe Blues

A while ago, we wrote on our very first visit to Lakowe Lakes and a few people had asked us if the accommodation section was available. Well we’re glad to inform you that they are finally ready to be inhabited. In fact some of the accommodation types already have permanent residents.

A few weeks ago, some of us got the opportunity to experience Lakowe Lakes in a different way. We slept over and took part in the activities available.


The ride to Lakowe took 30 mins from the take off point (Jakande) and immediately we got there, we settled into our accommodation, had lunch, rested then we were off to tour the facilities.

The accommodation types available are:

1 & 2 bedroom lofts (most of us stayed in the one bedroom lofts.)

1 & 2 bedroom cottages






The lofts are inclusive of a living area, internet, DSTV and a little kitchenette which means guests can bring their own food to cook or warm up if they don’t want to eat at the restaurant (or order room service).

The lofts were nicely decorated  and mine in particular had a patio where you can sit and enjoy the sunsets while drinking a cup of tea (or cocktails).


On our tour, we visited the cottages which were amazing. All the cottages are by the lake and even though I thought the lofts were fabulous in a millennial sort of way, the cottages stole my heart (the flies however were a lesson on how you should always have  repellent on).


LOVED the bathrooms in the cottages


Next, we headed to the club house area from where we got a boat and went fishing. Paddling those boats were no joke but the team fit fam in me was happy for a bit of the leg work out. The lake is man made and even though it’s quite small, the ride around it was enjoyable.


Fishing time


A few paddles later, it was time to show our golfing skills. Now golf seems pretty easy right? I mean all you need to do is swing the metal stick, hit the ball and yell ‘FORE’. How wrong we were.
