Sambani Lodge is one of those locations which is beautiful without having to flaunt. Set in a most sought after location on the banks of Lake Malawi, Sambani Lodge was a treat for myself and travel companions weary from a few days on the road. The quiet but dynamic ambience is felt throughout the establishment grounds, which literally spill over onto the white sands of the lake.
Rooms are fairly priced and provide a value for money place to rest your head and recuperate. With a fully licensed and stocked bar, the only thing lacking was tonic when we were there - although this was apparently a problem with Malawi country wide at that time. Meals will keep you sustained for any beach volleyball or for the less energetic, sunbathing, you may want to participate in. Be warned though, you may well become an attraction for delightfully inquisitive local children who are only too eager to play! Magical!
We stayed at Sambani Lodge in December 2008, and we had a truly wonderful time with friends that we knew and new ones that we made there!
