Lake Malawi Low Season


Low Season Beach Package

Known as the “warm heart of Africa”, Malawi is a gem of a country in the heart of central southern Africa that offers a truly memorable African experience. Sculptured by Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Malawi’s landscapes reveal towering mountains, lush, fertile valley floors and enormous sparkling blue lakes. What’s more, this is one of the best places in Africa for visitors to meet and interact with the local inhabitants or visit a rural community in an atmosphere totally devoid of either expectation or affectation.

This fantastic package showcases the spectacular crystal-clear waters of Lake Malawi, the third largest water body in Africa which takes up almost a third of this narrow country. Epitomised by warm, idyllic white sandy beaches which stretch on for miles, Lake Malawi is the perfect place from which to enjoy an exotic beach holiday

BRIEF ITINERARY

On arrival in Lilongwe, you will be met by your guide and transferred 4-5 hours by road to Chintheche Inn on the northern lakeshore.

Area and Location: Chintheche Inn is situated on the northern shores of Lake Malawi on what is acknowledged to be one of Malawi’s finest beaches. Against the backdrop of the Viphya Mountains and patches of tropical rainforests, the white sandy beaches of Chintheche are broken only by small rocky outcrops and stretch for miles.

Activities: Activities include a variety of mountain biking trails passing local fishing villages and markets. Village tours can be arranged to provide a unique window into rural communities. The gardens and surroundings of the Inn make for relaxed birding and a wide variety of water-sports are available, including kayaking, snorkelling and boat rides. Scuba diving and horse riding are also available at nearby Kande Beach.

Accommodation: Ten brightly furnished comfortable en-suite rooms draw inspiration from local materials and crafts. Each room opens out onto the beach and there is a welcoming reception and dining area with a bar. Meals can be taken indoors or outside in the gardens, by the swimming pool or on the beach.
