Lioness in Mwabvi Game Reserve in Malawi is the smallest game reserve in Malawi and spans over an area of approximately 350 sq. kilometers. The Mwabvi Game Reserve is located in the southern most end of Malawi.

The area is basically an undulating land with a rocky surface. It is primarily a wilderness with sandstone ridges, covered by the vegetation of mopane woods. The topography of the land is predominantly rugged.

Monkeys in Mwabvi Game Reserve, MalawiThough the natural landscape is rugged yet it provides a beautiful view of the rivers Shire and Zambezi. Its natural beauty is unlike any other reserve forest of Malawi. Unfortunately, the maintenane of the park has not been satisfactory, according to most visitors.

This place has suffered from the evils of poaching and as a consequence, the animal count has steadily decreased over the years.

Poaching of the animals has left the park with very few of those rare species of animals once present in the Mwabvi Game Reserve of Malawi.

Golden WeaverThough Malawian Mwabvi National Park has lost its glory and most of its animals still one may find the presence of monkey, antelope, lion, baboon and a healthy variety of birds. Elephants, which are the special feature of African wildlife, are absent from Mwabvi National Park - Malawi.

But the absence of elephants is compensated by the wonderful view presented by the river Shire and Zambezi.

It is very difficult for visitors to go around the park on foot due to poor road conditions. A vehicle is ideal to explore the park. The Mwabvi Camp is about 10 kilometers from the entrance on the northern bank of the river Mwabvi. Tourists have to carry their own beddings and other luggages. They should also be advised to keep provisions for food with them, along with firewood and water.

They included Mashatu in Botswana, Pafuri in Northern Kruger, and Mala Mala near Southern Kruger. Some of the highlights of Mashatu included watching wild dogs devour a wart hog, seeing four young cheetahs interact, and observing a newborn elephant breast feed. All in addition to sighting lots of giraffe, lions, leopard, elephant, zebra, etc. Our ranger, Jakes, was outstanding an...
