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

The place is very beautiful, sandy beach and comfortable entrance to the water unlike most backpackers in this area. Not too expensive but a little over "mayoka village" in nakhata bay. The food is great and the restaurant/bar owner Sophie is really nice. She was so kind that she took us as a favor to the bus station in the... More

Accommodation here was fine. Definitely very very basic but doable. We were camping and it was pretty average, lots of insects, hard sandy ground, toilet/shower facilities pretty average - but hey this is africa and such is the way of things more often than not. There was a beautiful beach on the Lake with lovely warm clear water for swimming,... More

A beautiful beach on Lake Malawi. Possibly the only good aspect of this camp. It's a big campsite and it seems to have people coming through all the time so I would expect the most expensive of the rooms to be a lot nicer than they are. You'd expect mozzies to not be able to get inside, for the windows... More

thanks for your constructive criticism of our most expensive rooms. if they were much nicer, as you say youd expect, then theyd be much more expensive. we will certainly address the cleanliness issues with the mosquito nets and the sand in the beds. the windows are louvered and most people find the beds ok for comfort? we ask everyone if...
