The lakeshore of Matema beach lies on the foothills of Livingstone Mountains, where these scenic ranges end majestically into Lake Nyasa. A wonderful sight! The beach is a local fair, fishermen repair nets and canoes, women sell groceries and fish, but it’s totally fine get your bikini of trunks out to catch some sun or have a swim. There’s a nice night market at the tree at the main junction of the village (no ATM’s).
Tanzania is well-known for the spectacular Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro crater and mount Kilimajaro. But! To get away from the crowds I choose to venture south instead and was surprised by what more the country has to offer!
