Ku Chawe Inn Game Viewing and Activities

Ku Chawe is a landmark hotel positioned to enjoy the commanding views across to Mount Mulanje in the South and down to the old colonial Capital of Zomba below. It is within easy walking distance of clear running streams, mountain walks, forest, dams and a trout farm. The old colonial capital of Zomba is a 30-minute drive down the mountain. About 110 kms south of Mvuu and only 1.5 hours from Blantyre Ku Chawe Inn is a good stop for people flying in or out of Malawi through Blantyre. It combines wonderfully with the lake and Mvuu as guests get 3 vastly different experiences all within easy travelling time. As well as visits to the town of Zomba, walks, birding and horse riding, if the road is in good shape there is a wonderful circular drive around the top of the mountain which takes in forest patches, montane grassland, and some spectacular viewpoints, the most famous of which is Chingwe’s Hole where the western edge of the plateau falls away dramatically.
