Situtated high above Zomba, the historic old colonial capital of Malawi, Sunbird Ku Chawe sits comfortably on the rim of Zomba plateau and 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, with fishing, sailing and water-surfing facilities on offer has brought further species and new attractions. Zomba Mountain rises to nearly 7000ft (2100m) and has some of Africa’s most stunning views including those of Mulanje Mountain.
Sunbird Ku Chawe has 40 rooms with en suite facilities, satellite television and telephones. The superior and de luxe rooms boast comforting log fires for those nights in winter 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. At weekends guests come 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.
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.
