Situated high above Zomba, the historic old colonial capital of Malawi and fondly referred to as an Island in the Sky, Sunbird Ku Chawe sits comfortably on the rim of Zomba plateau. It shares its views over Africa with a unique high tropical micro-climate and a huge bio-diversity of birds and animals. The recently completed dam has brought further species and new attractions. Zomba Mountain rises to nearly 7000ft (2000m) and has some of Africa’s most stunning views, including those of Mulanje Mountain.
Sunbird Ku Chawe has 37 rooms with en suite facilities, satellite television and telephones. All rooms have comforting log fires to keep guests warm during the cold winter nights when the high plateau is more reminiscent of Scotland than of tropical Africa.
Enjoy superb cuisine on the sunny patio or in the elegant dining room. With an array of fresh herbs, vegetables and mountain berries at hand, meals at Ku Chawe are a feast to the eyes and a pleasure on the palate. On weekends, guests drive in from all over Malawi for the hotel’s famous mountainside barbecues.
The hotel also has secluded and very quite boardroom style facilities especially suited for discussion groups, workshops and seminars.
Take in the beautiful views up on the plateau at famous spots such as William’s Falls or the Queens View, with an impressive view of Malawi’s southern region. Close to Zomba is the Liwonde National Park with elephant, hippo and crocodile in abundance. Another hour’s drive to Southern Lake Malawi allows many possibilities of lake, wildlife and mountain holiday combinations.
