Nestled on top of the Zomba Plateau, 900 meter above the town of Zomba, right on the edge of the plateau, in a tranquil forest reserve renowned for its temperate climate and natural splendour is Ku Chawe Inn.

Surrounded by landscape and terraced gardens, this hotel commands spectacular views, which on clear days stretch all the way along the Shire Highlands and Mount Mulanje. Each room has been attractively furnished with ensuite bathrooms, satellite television and log fires to compliment the cosy atmosphere of the Inn.
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.
