The Nyika National Park in the north of Malawi is the country's oldest wildlife reserve. It's more than twice the size of Greater London and stretches over the Nyika Plateau. This highland area is wetter than the surrounding areas - Nyika means ‘where the water comes from' - and distinct from the rest of Malawi.
The reserve's fertile plains spawn hundreds of species of wild flowers, which decorate the rolling hills of Malawi's largest park, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here too, you'll find a diverse array of wildlife including reedbucks and bushbucks, hyenas, warthogs and zebras. Leopards are more prominent here than most other areas in Central Africa. Nyika is very much a ‘hands on' safari park, where you're invited to explore on bike or in a 4x4 safari vehicle.
