Chintheche Inn

Lake Malawi, Malawi

Against the backdrop of the soaring Viphya Mountains lie the pristine, palm-fringed beaches of Chintheche Inn. The warm, crystal-clear waters of Lake Malawi lap tranquilly against a shoreline dotted with remnant patches of lowland tropical forest and fishing villages culturally unchanged for thousands of years. Its no wonder that Chintheche Inn is located in what is considered to be the most verdant region of Malawi.

Accommodation at Chintheche Inn consists of ten comfortable, brightly furnished rooms with en-suite bathrooms. Each has its own beach-view balcony overlooking the panoramic shoreline of Lake Malawi. The extensive grounds and gardens feature a lively campsite and a large pool. It is an ideal spot for families and groups wanting a comfortable base from which to explore the region. Knowledgeable local guides are always on hand to lead birding walks or hikes in the area, head up mountain biking trails, or to arrange visits to the local fishing villages. The nearby Bandawe Mission also offers a fascinating peek into the country's colonial past.

Water sports at Chintheche Inn include swimming, snorkeling, windsurfing and sailing. Beach barbecues are an excellent reason to just hang about and get some sun. And for the intrepid, a trip out to deeper waters on a fishing expedition with local fisherman should not be missed.
