Bandawe is a community in Malawi on the west shore of Lake Malawi.

The Livingstonia mission established a small station at Bandawe in Tonga country in 1878. In 1881 the mission moved to Bandawe to escape the bad climate and unhealthy conditions of Cape Maclear, but in 1894 the mission moved once again to Kondowe, again for health reasons.[1]
