The fishermen live in the centre of Chembe while either end of the village caters to tourists. The sight of fishing lights dotting the water at night is a must see. For a small fee guests can go fishing in a "dugout" with one of the local fisherman. Throughout the year we collect money from gate fees applicable to all day visitors. At the end of the year Chembe hosts the annual "big feed" where all villagers young and old, are welcome to join in for lunch. In past years over 4000 people have enjoyed Christmas lunch at Chembe. Africa Child Day is a big day for Chembe. Children from all over the village receive packets of sweets - the result - big smiles!

In the year 2002, Margaret Riordan established the "Billy Riordan Memorial Clinic" in honour of her late son, who lost his life to the lake in 1999. Before 2002 medical treatment was almost non - existant for the people of Chembe. The nearest facility being a 5 hour journey away. After raising $100 000 Margaret was given land by the local chief and the "Billy Riordan Memorial Clinic" was established. The dedicated volunteers at the clinic now help 15 000 people, mostly children.
