African / National Parks

Malawi is blessed with a rich diversity of flora and fauna and has no less than nine National Parks and Wildlife Reserves. Although it may not have quite the sheer numbers of large mammals as some of its better known neighbours, it makes up for this in other ways by providing intensive and exclusive wildlife viewing in unspoilt areas of genuine wilderness with very few other visitors looking on. Malawi is also in the middle of a wildlife revolution with massive investment in a number of of its protected areas resulting in a boom in wildlife numbers and, so far, some of its parks & reserves becoming home to the ‘Big 5 (lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino, leopard)’.
