A lovely place to while away an afternoon in Chipata in the spacious leafy gardens. Located on the edge of town (can walk in about 20 minutes) with a great view over the hills. Excellent value for money, we spent one night camping there before continuing onto South Luangwa. Dean was very friendly and helpfu,, as were the staff. All... More

This is a very basic place although it is quite clean. It has a small bar which serves cheap decent meals and it is up ion a cool breezy spot on the hill side. Location wise you need to take a cab into town. The power was off most of the time we were there. The staff are ok and... More

Great value for money! Staff are nice and friendly, and there is a bar area. The rooms are small and basic but clean and at 50,000 per person you can’t really complain. You can also bring a tent (I think it is 25,000 per person). The communal showers and toilets are pretty clean, but bring your own soap for washing... More

For most people, Chipata is just a stop for a night to travel to Mfuwe/Lilongwe/Lusaka. Dean's Hill View offers a very cute place for a reasonable price. Dorm might be a bit nicer than the very basic rooms. Beds are fine though and you won't be bothered by musquito's. Dining place is a bit basic (you could eat a bit... More

Deans Hill View Lodge is a convenient place to stay in Chipata and excellent value for money. We spent one night in the dormitory (ZMK 50 000 pppn) on our way from Lusaka to South Luanwa and we enjoyed our short stay. The rooms and the shared facilities are clean and garden is beautiful. Deans surely has the best views... More

A great place to stay in Chipata, just off the main strip, but located above the town and away from noise etc. Excellent value for money - cheapest we found. Very secure, spacious accomodation with friendly, welcoming staff. Great design of lodges with excellent facilities, very personalised visit, the owner has excellent knowledge and contacts around the area, and particularly... More

Deans is a nice place to stay, good value for money with both camping and chalets and the staff are friendly. It's a nice place to stop off at on your way to South Luangwa, I would stay here again.

We stayed here on night, arriving from Malawi before going to south luangwa national park. We stayed in a twin room which was basic but did have mosquito nets. Shared bathrooms could have been cleaner to reduce bugs but there was hot water. The only food available, and on a Sunday there was no other choice in chipata, was pies... More
