Kipili, snoozing on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, is an old mission station. It is reached by a beautiful road through the Lafwe Game Reserve. The hilltop ruins of the 1880s church, 3km north of town, are very evocative and surrounded by dreamy lake views of the many islands just offshore. The islands have many rocky points, ideal for snorkelling with clouds of cichlids. The experience is akin to snorkelling in a coral reef in the Red Sea, only without the salt.
