Salima and Senga Bay

Standing back from the central lakeshore is an important service and trading centre, the town of Salima. Close to the junction of the M14 road to Lilongwe and the lakeshore highway (M5), the town is 10 miles (16 km) inland from Senga Bay. This is a very busy little town with an interesting market and all the usual services.

To the east of Salima town is Senga Bay. This beautiful bay is only one and a half hours' drive from Lilongwe. A broad stretch of sandy beach is host to a range of hotels, extending from the luxurious to small lodges and campsites. Grandest of them all is the colonial Sunbird Livingstonia Beach and newest is Kumbali Lake Retreat - a rustic eco lodge. The popular Blue Waters by Serendib also resides at Senga Bay. Off shore on its own deserted island in the Marelli Archipelago is the wonderful Blue Zebra Island Lodge.
