Majete Wildlife Reserve

Majete is a Wildlife Reserve nestled in the south-western part of Malawi with an unlikely story of resurgence and restoration. 

Situated just south of Blantyre in the Lower Shire Valley in Malawi, Majete has taken on a new lease of life since  African Parks took over management in 2003. Large translocations of game to this 70 000 hectare Reserve have boosted the animal stocks to over 5000. Black Rhinos and Elephants (2006), Lions (2012) Giraffe (2018 and 2021)  Cheetahs (2019 -2021) Wild dogs (2021) Buffalo, Zebra, Hartebeest and many antelope species including Kudu and Roan can be found here. Majette has become a Big Five reserve in Malawi.

Another major attraction of Majete is the Kapichira Falls, with stunning views and rock formations worn and created over thousands of years. A very good place to stay 1.5 k.m. away is Ng' ona Lodge
