IntroductionSet in the Shire Valley along the border with Mozambique, this reserve (345 sq mi/887 sq km) is home to antelope, buffalo and leopard, as well as the rare Nyala antelope and Samango monkey. The park can be seen easily on a day trip from Blantyre. Lengwe's accommodations are modest, but an air-conditioned lodge, restaurant and other facilities have been added as part of an overall refurbishing. Just north of the park is the Majete Game Reserve, on the Shire River. In addition to the species found in Lengwe, Majete has elephants, hippos, zebras and waterbuck, and close to the gate are the scenic Kapichira Falls. 265 mi/425 km south of Lilongwe.
