If there is a campsite for paradise, this one will do! We arrived late that evening, checked all the other campsites, either too crowded or no feeling until we found this one! The campsite is at the end of the village, a little bit too remote for people without a vehicle, but we did have one. After a bumpy way... More

Small resort in quiet corner of Lake Malawi. Accomodation in simple huts, with bathroom and comfortable beds. A wide beach with coarse sand, crystal clear water with ciclides swimming everywhere. Food was acceptable and service friendly but not top notch. Good value for money, and the road to get there is well worth the effort.

Courtesy, kindness and hospitality of the owners. Wonderful sunset view from the bungalows. Chembe Eagles Nest is perfect for a romantic getaway, far from the noise (and from the village of Chembe). Enjoy the view of the hills on the right and the islands on the horizon, a unique landscape, which is not seen anywhere else in Cape Maclear!

We camped here for three nights in September 2013. The road up to Cape MacLear is now almost fully tarmac'd so a more comfortable drive than others have had previously I understand! The location is sheer bliss and a weird and wonderful experience of real-life Malawi. You have to drive through Chembe village to find Eagles Nest but great fun.... More

Cape Maclear was a last second addition to our trip and after and INCREDIBLE 3 nights at Chembe's Eagles Nest we can't believe we nearly missed out. The second we pulled in we were greeted from a member of the staff and shown the campsite overlooking Lake Malawi just as the sun was setting. The campsite is on a privately... More

This is a lovely place on Lake Malawi. its quiet, serene and there are some stunning sunset. If you are planning for a short stay plan to get there before sunset. There is a sunset cruise you can do on the hotel's catamaran, pick the sunset cruise rather than the other trips, unless you do not mind the hot sun.... More

We stayed two nights and enjoyed perfect beach weather. The resort wasn't very full so it was an oasis of calm beside the busy village right next door. The sand is quite coarse so if you have water shoes it could help. We took in the sun from a nice setup with loungers, umbrellas and a low table. There is... More

This was definitely one of the best campsites we have ever stayed in - right on the lake under several shady trees - so beautiful and relaxing! It is a small campsite and I recommend booking well in advance to avoid disappointment. The restaurant has a fantastic menu and certainly the best food we have had in Malawi! The bathrooms... More

I stayed for 2 nights at Chembe Eagles Nest. The manager was friendly and helpful and so were the rest of the staff. We really enjoyed the breakfast and dinner (especially the local fish). The huts were a stone throw away from the lake and lake facing, which makes it amazing. The rooms were very spacious with an en-suit shower,... More

At least it was for us - as we preferred a secluded spot away from the noisy centre of Chembe where we saw campsites densely packed with the tents of mostly younger travelers. Although Eagle's nest campsite is small, we had more space and privacy there. And, as it lies at the far end of the bay, the sundowns were... More
