Ku Chawe Inn

Discover Ku Chawe Inn

Overlooking the Zomba Plateau, Ku Chawe Inn offers a unique mountain retreat, giving you the chance to take in the true beauty of Malawi with stunning views and beautiful surroundings. The Plateau can be explored with guided tours, either on foot, by jeep, or by mountain bike. Discover cascading waterfalls and fascinating giant butterflies. Ku Chawe Inn is set amidst trees high on the Plateau and is around 20 minutes from Zomba town.

Rooms are nicely furnished and feature a number of modern amenities, including air conditioning. The hotel is set in a charming landscaped garden, which is always nice for a relaxing stroll in between activities. There is also a restaurant and bar area, serving delicious a la carte meals, with occasional buffet dinners served in the evening. The large fireplace by the bar is most welcome, with the mountain air growing quite chilly, particularly after dark.
