Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve



This large park runs along the low-lying border are with Zambia south of the Nyika Plateau. It is easily accessible from the small town of Rumphi. Populations of about 2,000 buffalo, 550 hippos and 30 elephants are the largest in Malawi. Other large mammal species include greater kudu, Liechtenstein's hartebeest, puku and impala. Lions and leopards are scarce, and reports of African wild dog suggest that this endangered species has recolonised the park from neighboring Zambia. A nice lodge lies on Lake Kazuni, which supports plenty of birds and usually attracts elephants on a daily basis. 220 mi/350 km north of Lilongwe.
