ENJOY THE CLEAR WATERS OF LAKE MALAWI
Bar and Restaurant
Our bar & restaurant at Mango Drift is located right on the beach. Drift into a calm quiet morning whilst sipping your coffee at breakfast.
At sunset, watch the stunning colours unfold over the wide bay enjoying an ice-cold beer.
Choose from a wide selection of cold drinks, beer and alcoholic spirits. Our daily set menu in the evenings for dinner, is scribed on the board. There is always a meat and vegetarian option. For breakfast choose from a selection of toast, pancakes or a range of hot breakfasts from our full Monty to our delicious French toast. At lunchtime order a sandwich, pasta, savory crepes or one of our famous pizzas.
There are also plenty of local restaurants to visit on Likoma where you can find good cheap local food. If you would like the option of self-catering, we do have BBQ facilities with firewood available for purchase at the bar. Access to our kitchen facilities is not permitted, however we have a small area just outside the kitchen if you wish to make something for yourself.
A Mango Garden
Even with the sandy condition of the soil, the harsh sun, the birds, the bugs, we manage to produce for our restaurant: lettuce, rocket, basil, tomato, zucchini, herbs and much more.
In October & November months, 5 varieties of Mango are in season.
At the local markets, we can usually find banana, papaya, lemons, delicious avocados, aubergines, potatoes, onions and many other seasonal fruits and vegetables
