Chawani Bungalow is available on a self-catering rate and is ideal for families or groups. Chawani is set within the working fair trade tea estate of Satemwa. Set amidst the rolling tea fields, Chawani is tucked into an idyllic corner of the estate surrounded by a stunning garden backing onto the tea fields.
The lodge now has a swimming pool!
Chawani Bungalow is set inside Satemwa Tea Estate, a few kilometres from Thyolo.
Hotel Address: Satemwa Tea Estate, Thyolo
Leave Blantyre and head to Limbe and on towards Thyolo. About 20 minutes driving further than Limbe you enter tea estate country and just before Thyolo there is a sign on the right hand side of the road "Satemwa Tea Estate'. Take this track and about 100 yards down the track there is a gate and they will direct you to Chawani from there.
The track is fine for a saloon car but would be more comfortable in a 4 x 4 vehicle.
NB: Please check the state of the road if travelling in the rainy season.
