Things to do at Chintheche Inn

Activities at Chintheche Inn are directed not only at the obvious water-sports of a lakeside resort, but also at land-based activities and explorations of the surrounding area.


Freshwater snorkelling allows you to discover the underwater cichlid realm for which Lake Malawi is famous – more than 400 cichlid species alone! Snorkelling equipment is available at the Inn for guests' use.

Mountain biking

Ride along the Lakeshore through some of the prettiest villages in Malawi. There are four bikes available at the Inn.

Village visits and guided walks

Visit a local fishing village or the chief with one of our experienced guides. A village visit is approximately two hours and gives you a real taste of traditional Malawian village life – it is impossible to leave untouched by the warmth and friendliness of the Malawian people.

Day trips to Nkhata Bay and Bandawe Mission

Take a scenic drive north of Chintheche through some of the most unspoilt areas on the Lakeshore to Nkhata Bay where the Bandawe (Livingstonia) Mission is situated. Learn about what the famous explorer, Dr David Livingstone, saw and did in this area.


A patch of lowland forest nearby offers some god birding opportunities as do the grounds of Chintheche Inn itself.

Water Activities

Boat in a 10-seater wooden fishing boat to observe the nearby fishermen at work, or two paddle skis and a Hobie Cat are on hand for exploring the Lake.
