The Ku Chawe Inn is high up on the Zomba Plateau with commanding views of the valley below. It is about a 20 minute drive outside Zomba town up a steep and winding road, surrounded by dense woodland. The brick built low-rise hotel is always a pleasant surprise as you turn the final corner.

The hotel has both and indoor and outdoor eating area and meals are a la carte although the evening meal is sometimes buffet style. There is also bar with a huge central fire place (please remember at this altitude it gets quite chilly in the evening). Other facilities include a small curio shop, attractive gardens and even a small petting zoo with rabbits, goats and other animals. Activities here involve strolling through the woodland following the trails, mountain biking or simply relaxing in the cool mountain air.

The guestrooms (totaling 40) are spacious and comfortable with TV, telephone, twin or double beds, coffee and tea, a small sitting area, en-suite facilities, a balcony and your own log fire place. Simply call to reception and they send someone to make your fire up for you.
