Liwonde National Park
Located in the south of Malawi with the Shire River on its border, Liwonde National Park is considered to be Malawi's premier park, and is a must for visitors. This Malawi National Park has fabulous scenery and is well managed. Animal stocks include large numbers of interesting animals such as a great many Hippos and Crocodiles, herds (in their hundreds) of Elephant, Zebra and other antelope which come down to the water to drink.
There are only 2 types of accommodation in Liwonde National Park, a camp and a lodge, and visitors should be aware that Hippos often come up onto the lawns to feed at night. Expert guides take visitors on guided walks, boat trips and also night drives. The guides are extremely knowledgeable, and their bush lore is fascinating, as they give guests an insight into the lives of many animals.
Poor roads in the rainy season make the accommodation hard to access, but arriving by boat is the way to go, visitors can park near the jetty on the opposite side, raise the red flag provided and staff from the camp will come across the water to make the transfer.
