4Cs Projects at Chelinda Camp

Chelinda Camp and Chelinda Lodge are vital elements of the collaborative conservation efforts which have been implemented in the region between Wilderness Safaris and Malawi's Department of National Parks & Wildlife.


Nyika National Park

The Nyika-Vwaza Trust is an independent organisation that is involved in environmental and wildlife conservation in the Nyika area; Wilderness Safaris is partnering with the Trust in its endeavours.

The Chelinda Pine Plantation

Planted as an agricultural experiment in the 1960s, Chelinda Camp and Lodge are situated on the edge of the Chelinda Pine Plantation, with the trees serving as a windbreak and source of firewood and timber in this grass-dominated environment. These non-indigenous trees are slowly being cut back and the grasslands will ultimately be rehabilitated. However, the pines are not invasive and do not threaten the integrity of the ecosystem.

A Quote From Our Guests

“ Nyika NP is stunningly beautiful - European highlands with African wildlife, more or less. Green rolling hills, rocky outcrops, patches of woodland, an abundance of wildflowers - and lots of animals ”
