Stop for an hour for tea/coffee and some shopping; you can arrange for them to ship your purchases anywhere in the world. Proceed south for the scenic descent down the escarpment to the lakeshore road and loop back towards Salima for a stopover at Mua Mission’s KuNgoni Centre of Culture and Art in time for lunch, before being conducted around the art gallery, the cultural museum, research centre —crowning the visit with arguably the best opportunity to buy highly sought after carvings, so popular that some pieces from here have reportedly graced the Vatican museum and Buckingham Palace. Continue north to Salima and into Kuti Community Game Park for game viewing and overnight accommodation.
