|Herds of elephants fill Nkhotakota; cheetahs balance atop termite mounds while lions roar within Liwonde; and every “Big Five” animal roams throughout Majete. This is Malawi.
Malawi is known as the "Warm Heart of Africa" because of the kindness of its people. But more recently, this small and beautiful country is also being recognized as an emerging wildlife destination and one of the best-kept secrets in Africa. CNN Travel recently called it "the place to be if you want to enjoy a natural paradise without everybody else."
Since 2003, thanks to our partnership with the Malawian Government through which African Parks now manages four parks in the country, Malawi has seen a resurgence of wildlife. Together with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife, we have transformed these landscapes through deploying effective ranger units, delivering community benefits, and reintroducing a host of species – including elephants, rhinos, lions, cheetahs, giraffes and many others, to help repopulate these landscapes.
Tourism is a wonderful way to generate revenue for the parks and for surrounding communities, while also creating jobs, and supporting a local conservation-led economy.
We hope you’ll consider adding Malawi and these four parks as must-visit destinations, whether you’re already within Malawi or on your next trip on the continent. We’d love to see you there.
