For a long time Malawi’s stunning beaches, beautiful and varied landscapes and fascinating and friendly cultural experiences have been some of the best that Africa has to offer. With the wildlife transformations continuing courtesy of African Parks, Malawi’s safari experiences are now starting to match its other attractions as it emerges as one of the most complete destinations in Africa.
2019 saw even more animal re-locations with cheetah and giraffe added to the ever-growing populations in Majete, where a new community campsite has opened and a raft of new activities are being offered in 2020. Liwonde benefitted from the visit in October of African Parks President Prince Harry, and is set to receive more black rhino as well as leopard in 2020. At Nkhotakota, Rafiki Camp (only opened in late 2018) has added new rooms and a swimming pool and Bua River Lodge has upgraded rooms, with additional accommodation planned for 2020. It’s clear that there is no let-up in Malawi’s wildlife transformations and developments that are fast-tracking the country to become one of Africa’s most complete destinations.
