Chintheche Inn

Lake Malawi is Africa's third largest lake and stretches over 500 kilometres from north to south, and supports over 2000 species of fish, mainly endemic. Palm fringed beaches and soaring mountains surround the warm crystal clear waters and picturesque fishing villages dot the shoreline, unchanged for thousands of years. The northern lakeshore is the lushest region of the country with remnant patches of tropical rainforest and the dramatic backdrop of the Viphya mountains. This is the setting for Chintheche Inn. Just south of Nkhata Bay, Chintheche Inn has a wonderful broad sandy beach and extensive grounds with many fine indigenous trees. The Inn has ten double rooms that open out onto the beach and are all brightly furnished using local crafts. All rooms are en-suite with ceiling fans. There is a central dining area and a swimming pool for those days when conditions on the lake are rough.
