Guide on a Walking Safari

Liwonde National Park Malawi

Liwonde National Park is fringed with ancient baobab trees and large borassus palms.  This beautiful reserve until recently lacked an effective perimeter fence making poaching, illegal fishing and unsustainable deforestation the biggest challenges facing the park's delicate ecosystem. Since African Parks took over management of Liwonde National Park and effective law enforcement has been in place, illegal fishing has been almost eradicated and more than 16,500 snares have been safely removed. This magnificent reserve in southern Malawi is home to dense woodlands, lagoons and fertile floodplains harbouring over 400 species of bird, the critically endangered black rhino and the largest population of elephants in Malawi.

  • A new 117 km perimeter fence has been built meaning there have been zero human deaths by wildlife since July 2016
  • 261 elephants were relocated to neighbouring Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve to restock Nkhotakota and reduce habitat degradation in Liwonde. Prince Harry joined African Parks at this time.
  • Development of the community has crucially helped the 900,000 people who live round Liwonde and depend on its resources for survival.
  • Intensive training of 120 rangers in 2016 has led to the elimination of poaching and the removal of many snares and gin traps.
