Explore Malawi and learn about the work of African Parks. Begin in Majete, Malawi’s most established park, then continue to the beautiful riverine landscape of Liwonde. Finish in the forested hills of Nkhotakota, the site of the largest wildlife translocation of modern times.
Begin in Blantyre, a short distance from Majete Wildlife Reserve, Malawi's most established park. Bordered by the Shire and Mkulumadzi rivers, this Big-Five park has been under African Park's management since 2003. Here, stay at the beautiful Mkulumadzi with its views of the Shire River and explore on foot and by 4x4. Meet Craig Hay, park manager, and learn about the history of the park. Also meet the highly effective anti-poaching team and discover the challenges they face.
Afterwards, drive a few hours north to arguably Malawi's most beautiful national park, Liwonde. Here, wildlife is drawn to the hippo-packed Shire River, with large herds of elephants often spotted roaming its banks. Away from the river, drive across through thicket and over savannah, dotted with termite mounds and fever trees. Spot various antelopes, including roan and sable. Meet the park's manager, Craig Reid, to learn more about this beautiful ecosystem and its history. Accompanied, by Craig, track the recently introduced cheetahs, which are radio-collared.
Finish by flying north to Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, acquired by African Parks in 2015 and once a park devoid of wildlife. Thanks to one of the largest animal translocations of modern time, it is a park reborn with a bright future. Meet Sam Kamoto, the inspiring park manager in charge of Nkhotakota. Learn about all that has happened, as well as African Parks' vision for the future. Also have the chance to visit one of the community projects bordering the park.
Afterwards, head home or have the chance to relax on a beautiful island on Lake Malawi.
