Dangers & Annoyances

Take great care when swimming near the large rocks at the end of the beach at Steps Campsite; there’s a surprisingly strong undertow. Flags advise on whether it's safe to swim.

Some beaches here, especially at the bay's southern end, are flat, sheltered and reedy: perfect conditions for bilharzia snails, so check with your accommodation if it’s safe to swim.

During the wet season, seek local advice before swimming in the lake at dusk and after dark, as crocs are occasionally at large.

Money

There is no ATM in Senga Bay, but Salima has several banks with ATMs, including a Standard Bank that accepts Visa and Mastercard.
