Lake Malawi Budget Travel

Lake Malawi is a huge, beautiful lake situated in between Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania.

This enormous lake is so huge that it impossible to see the other side, and Lake Malawi budget travel is popular for backpackers and beach bums exploring the area.

Lake Malawi Budget Safaris

Notable Lake Malawi budget safaris attractions include Monkey Bay, Lake Malawi National Park, Salima & Senga Bay, Nkhata Bay, Likoma Island and Northern Lakeshore.

There are a number of camp sites and cheap accommodation in the various villages around Lake Malawi, which make this ideal for budget travel.

Other highlights include a multitude of fishing villages, where delicious freshly caught seafood can be enjoyed; stunning, clear fresh-water beaches ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving; wildlife spotting of species ranging from crocodiles to hippopotamuses, monkeys, and a large population of African Fish Eagles.

For travellers who enjoy life on the calm side, simply relaxing on the shores of the lake with a sundowner is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon or evening at Lake Malawi.
