Why we love Sunbird Ku Chawe
Key Features
When to Visit
Sunbird Ku Chawe Tours

Situated within a forest, Sunbird Ku Chawe is a wonderful retreat that sits on the edge of the Zomba Plateau. With panoramic views of the valley you can enjoy the glorious scenes around you. Settle into your spacious and comfortable room where each has a spectacular view. The Plateau is truly one of the most breath-taking spots Malawi has to offer.

“Zomba Plateau is one of my favourite places to visit in Malawi and situated perfectly towards the top is Ku Chawe Inn, with some of the most spectacular views. Welcomed with warm smiles and made to feel at home it’s a great little place to enjoy a few days. Fresh air, hikes and picnics to the waterfalls…very memorable.”

“We like to feel at home wherever we stay and the staff at Ku Chawe Inn did exactly this. In the colder months they pop on the fire, get cosy and enjoy a glass of some fine wine whilst reminiscing about the day. The views are some of my favourite in Malawi too – absolutely gorgeous.”

Incredible Views

The Zomba Plateau is simply beautiful, with some of the most glorious views Malawi has to offer. Exploring the plateau on foot is perfect, with guides that can take you out on guided walks – it is recommended as they do know the area like the back of their hand. The forest is serene and peaceful. If the skies are clear you get one of the best sunsets in the country, enjoy a glass of bubbles with a loved one and take in the views of the country below your feet.

Ku Chawe Inn


The restaurant at Sunbird Ku Chawe offers an extensive a la carte menu to suit all palates, serving local and international cuisine. The breakfast buffet is a favourite with a wide selection of food to choose from. The bar offers a delicious wine list too which compliments some of the dishes on the dinner menu perfectly – just ask your friendly waiter for some advice.

  • Beautiful views

    The rooms have stunning views and I loved the brick walls and the cozy fireplace. The hotel restaurant offers a wide selection menu and the food is quite good. The internet is poor but if you want a place to escape to then this is the place. Cold weather so carry something warm.

  • The finest place to stay in Zomba!

    This Sunbird hotel is relatively new and is placed on the edge of the gorgeous Zomba Plateau with a stunning view of the old Malawi capital of Zomba. This being Malawi, the service is extreme pleasant and attentive; you couldn’t hope for better service. They’re in the process of doing what looks to be a beautiful recreation of their dining room, with lovely deck, so for the time being meals are served in the bar, which is large enough for an expansive buffet and lots of tables.
