Chitimba Camp, on the northern shores of Lake Malawi, is a lodge and campsite set on a beautiful golden sandy beach, among banana palms and papaya trees, with views of the Livingstonia and Nyika mountains.
The main focus is a large thatched bar, restaurant and lounge. There are five beach huts, four rooms with toilet and shower and a dormitory with six beds. There is space for 80 tents and a separate toilet and shower block.
The property is visited mostly by overland trucks and backpackers and is the first stop in Malawi heading south or the last heading north.
