Activities at Ku Chawe Inn
Zomba Plateau safari, tour of Zomba town, a number of walking trails and a safari in nearby Liwonde National Park.
Rooms clean and bright and well appointed - but the hotel is clearly government run and staff accordingly not very engaged. Food was buffet style and a bit disappointingRead full trip review
