Dedza-Salima Forest Reserve
The Dedza-Salima Forest Reserve runs in a north-south strip thorough the western part of Dedza and lies between the Thuma Forest Reserve in the north and the Mua-Livulezi Forest Reserve in the south. It covers an area of 32,000ha (320 sq km).
Numbers of animals in the Reserve are low because of the lack of enforcement action over the years. However, the Wildlife Action Group, a German based charity, has recently taken over the management and hopes to create a stronghold for the African elephant and other wildlife through conservation work.
