About Chembe Eagles Nest

Tucked away in a sheltered cove in a lush setting of the African bush, no travel guide or picture can prepare you for the visual experience of colours and textures amidst the smooth untouched bay of Chembe Eagles Nest. It provides a true sense of peace.

The quiet and idyllic chalets all face Lake Malawi under a sheltered thatched patio with a pair of easy chairs to watch the exquisite sunsets. The 11 chalets feature six with double beds and five with twin beds and they are all en-suite with showers. If you are more inclined to outdoor living, the adjoining campsite with spectacular views of the hills and lake will suit you best. Campers have their own wash-up area, braai facilities and beautifully pristine ablutions with ample privacy from the rest of the lodge.

Take a relaxing cruise on our catamaran, Mama Afrika, while sipping on an ice cold gin and tonic, or view the 'butterflies of the lake' as you snorkel through Lake Malawi, and for the more energetic, Chembe offers water skiing and tube riding as well as kayaking.

The far cry of fish eagles as they soar over and the emergence of otters as they feast on nearby rocks, set apart from the hustle and bustle of village life, guarantees a relaxing experience in Cape Maclear.

Beach: We have a big, clean and private beach in the corner of Cape Maclear

Family friendly: Chembe Eagles Nest Lodge is ideal for a family break away with alot of activities for the whole family that includes Catamaran cruises on the beautiful Lake Malawi, Snorkling, mountain biking, volley ball, swimming, beach games, and much more.

Romantic: We have private chalets each en suite and free standing. All double Chalets are beach front with a beautiful view of the Lake and Malawi's awesome sun sets.

We really enjoyed our stay at Chembe Eagles's Nest. It was great to stay so close to the lake and have the beautiful views from our verandah.

Great location with fantastic view of the lake. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and the rooms are in a very good condition. We spent 4 nights with our kids and would definitely go again. The food lived up to  the expectations of the manager who said that we would be impressed. All in all a well worth the money. Cheers J.

My husband and I have just returned from a week at this wonderful place. The owners Aubrey and Nita are wonderful hosts - nothing is too much effort for them. Good food, comfortable accommodation and lots and lots of peacefulness, which is just what we were looking for. Thank you - Adrien and Margaret

We were camping when staying here. Not many trees to pitch your tent under but the campsite was clean and was close to the water too which was great! Really nice facilities.

We arrived at Eagles Nest on Dec 24 and stayed through the 26. You have to drive through a local poor village to arrive at EN, that appears to not be benefiting from the mostly South African lodges that are springing up along the lakes shore of the village. We enjoyed the two twin bed roundville we stayed in that looked out to the lake. Although the shower had absolutely no pressure nor hot water. When I mentioned this to the New Zealand manager she snapped, "Well, if you're swimming in the lake why do you need to wash your hair anyways?!" However, she did have one of the locally hired men...
