    Senga Bay Navigation

About Senga Bay

Senga Bay is the small strech of sandy beach, just east of Salima in Malawi. It doesn't promise to be the most amazing tropical paradise, but it does offer a carefree perch overlooking the ocean where you can enjoy vibrant African music by night, and the quirky elements of a fishing village by day.

Malawi is an inland country. That puts Senga Bay on the lip of Lake Malawi, and not at the edge of the continent leading out into the ocean.

Around Senga Bay you'll notice traditional huts scattered along the road sides. Many Africans live in homesteads like these in small communities. Ah Africa, you're such a culturally diverse land.

Senga Bay's beach is there to be enjoyed. So, while that big, African, yellow clock of heat is up in the sky, make sure you head down to the beach to get some sand between your toes and some sun on your face.

Where there's a beach, fun in the water is sure to be found. Get that body of yours wet with some snorkelling, swimming and diving. Enjoy the lake!

From Senga Bay you can easily navigate your way to Kasungu National Park and Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve to soak up a dash more of the area's natural attractions.

Ask anyone who's been to Malawi's Senga Bay - it's a truly exquisite spot in Africa where you'll experience a mixture of fun, gorgeous sun and lush nature all around.
