Malawi with Wilderness Safaris

Nyika Plateau

In the north of Malawi, the high altitude montane grasslands and forested patches of Nyika National Park is a wild, untouched and remote upland area, boasting the distinction of being the only big game Afro-montane area in south-central Africa. The vistas are immense and the area is home to zebra, roan and eland as well as approximately 400 bird species.

Highlights

  • At 313 400 hectares, Nyika is Malawi’s largest National Park
  • In summer, Nyika is a botanist's delight with masses of wild alpine flowers and localised orchid species
  • Wildlife is fascinating, with the occasional elephant and exciting daytime sightings of leopard
