  • Poor Lunch Buffet


    We stopped here for lunch on a trip through the area. It was a beautiful setting on a patio overlooking the lake. The problem was the food was mediocre at best. The soup was the best part and the steamed vegetables were OK but the meat I had was hard to eat. I mean that literally. I had the beef and it was so tough it hurt my hands to cut it. The chicken looked like odd bits and pieces randomly cut up and the pork (?) was unappetizing looking. If you combined the great view with good food and you would have a real memorable experience. .

    Unique Quality: The lake view.

Travel Tips for Salima

Another fine beach

by frockland

Another favourite place for many travellers is Senga Bay / "Livingstonia Beach Hotel".

Senga Bay is at the end of the road from Salima to the lake. It’s a small village located for several kilometres along the lakeside with some places to stay.
The carving and souvenir sellers are probably the most aggressive in the country!

For the travellers who don´t mind spending a littlbit more money there is the very nice located but expensive "Livingstonia Beach Hotel" with the adjected "Steps Camp Site".
This campsite is probably the best in the country. There is also a money exchange at the entrance!

Mua Misson

by frockland

Mua is a small town between the Monkey Bay turn off and Balaka. The only (and good reason) to go there is the mission. Since about a hundred years there are missionaries working. Today there is a church, school, hospital and craft shop, where tourists can find carvings of high quality that were produced by the local people. The prices are fix. There is also a small zoo.
The people are very friendly and will be happy to show you around!


by frockland

Salima is about 20 kilometers off the lake. It’s nothing special to see or to do here, its a small pleasant town with some nice alleys, some supermarkets, banks and filling stations. You will pass through Salima on your way to Senga Bay. Once you get rid of the touts at the busstation, who offer transport to Senga Bay, you will realize that nobody will bother you. There is no begging or “Azungu” yelling kids!

There are some good shopping facilities, a post office and a Stanbik Bank with an out side ATM and Western Union service.
