Chinteche Inn (Lake Malawi)
Lake Malawi is Africa's third largest and stretches over
500 kilometers from North to South. Palm fringed beaches and
soaring mountains surround the warm crystal clear waters and
picturesque fishing villages dot the shoreline as they have
unchanged for thousands of years. The lake supports over 400
species of fish, many endemic.
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 Chinteche Inn. Just south of
Nkhata Bay, Chinteche Inn has a wonderful broad sandy beach
and extensive grounds with many fine indigenous trees.
The Inn has ten double rooms. Each room overlooks a white
sandy beach and the Inn offers excellent swimming and
interesting beach walks. All rooms are en suite with fans.
There is a central dining area and a recently completed
swimming pool for those days when the lake is rough.
There is plenty to do at Chinteche. Apart from the icons
shown below, guests can also enjoy visits to local villages,
excellent mountain biking trails (bike are for hire), trips
to the Vizara rubber plantation and the lively market town
of Nkhata Bay.
Nearby Bandawe Mission provides a fascinating look into
the country's colonial past. Windsurfers, paddle skis, and
sailing are all available at the Inn and we have a large and
stable wooden fishing boat for trips to the nearby island.
Snorkeling gear is provided and we are able to offer a
whole range of PADI accredited dive courses. Guests may also
wish to walk the Luwawa Hiking Trail. This is a tough walk
though, and only recommended for the very fit.
Snorkeling, swimming, boating opportunities exist and are
available at the Inn and local excursions can easily be
arranged - bird watching, diving, points of local interest
