We were here for three nights. We stayed at a private standard room, shared bathroom, because we thought them to be cleaner. Lovely, relaxing atmosphere. The beach is amazing and the common areas are very nice to play cards, read a book or drink a beer and relaxing. Would definetly come back. The nearest ATM is 1 hour drive away,... More

We stayed here with an overland trip and enjoyed our 3 days relaxing here. With hammocks, a nice bar, and great views, I felt very rested by the time we left. Although there are many activities to do, I found just reading my book with a drink and laying on the beach was enough for me. Security kept people from... More

Kande beach is located on the shores of Lake Malawi with a very beautiful and clean beach. We managed to venture outside the camp gates with a local villager who brought us to a local bar, which was an experience and all the locals were very nice and friendly. The bar is basic but sufficient, they ran out of vodka... More

I loved my two nights at Kande Beach. The resort has become infamous for bad taste clothes parties which was good craic but some of the younger overlanders got a little out of control and it all went a bit 18-30. On the flip side I also enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and great views during a lightening storm the following... More

I absolutely loved Lake Malawi and I especially loved Kande Beach resort. Situated right on the lake, this expansive resort has so much to offer than just camping. The camping facilities were fantastic. The showers clean, the water hot. The cooking and laundry facilities for campers were well maintained. The bar area has a foosball table which makes for some...

We stayed in a little beach front hut for three nights and had a great time. The twin beds were equipped with mosquito nets and the shared toilet/shower facilities were fine.The camping facilities also looked pretty good - even providing shade over the camping areas. The bar was nice and the food from the restaurant was ok too. It was... More

This is a pretty good campground for overlander trucks with large areas available for tents, and even shade shelters erected so your tent doesn't get too hot (nice touch by management here). As with just about anywhere in Africa there are people trying to sell you things on the public beach and outside the gates near the village, however I... More

The place is pretty much only there for overlanders. The bathrooms were not clean. The double rooms were not so clean either, and extremely basic. None of the beds have box nets. The price of the rooms was quite high for what you are getting. The location is very nice, but if you're not dead set on seeing a beach... More

Our travel agent had mistakenly booked us at Kande which is a spot for campers, backpackers and over landers on a budget. The rooms are very basic and not what we required. The management gave us a prompt refund and we found more suitable accommodation elsewhere. Thank you. Busy Easter weekend aside, I've stayed in beautiful campsites across Southern Africa... More
