IntroductionAt around 7,500 ft/2,300 m, this park is one of the world's highest-altitude game reserves. This area of beautiful grassland and waterfalls offers a wide range of animal viewing, hiking and fishing, but it's really quite remote (in far northern Malawi). A popular activity at Nyika is horseback riding across the rolling highlands and dambos (seasonally moist depressions). These are the ideal habitats for leopards and many species of antelope. A herd of about 40 elephants has recolonized the plateau, and other wildlife includes spotted hyena, an endemic race of Burchell's zebra, and a checklist of 400 bird species including several montane forest rarities. Accommodations consist of a lodge that has its own air strip for fly-in safaris. 315 mi/510 km north of Lilongwe.
