national parks (back to intro)

map of Malawi Nyika National Park, Malawi

This park is the largest national park in the country. The terrain comprises rolling grassy hills and forested valleys surrounded by steep escarpments. Visitors can stay at Chelinda Camp, in the center of the park, which contains chalets. There is also a campsite. Visitors can indulge in trekking, as there are nature trails within the park that can take two days to longer than a week to cover. The most popular trek takes four days and allows the visitor to visit the Kauline Lake, Zovo-Chipolo Forest, Chisanga Falls, Domwe Peak, western escarpment and Nganda Peak.

The Nyika plateau is a vast area of upland. The variety of vegetation in the park means variety in the wildlife. Visitors can observe animals like the zebra, wart hog, eland, roan antelope, reedbuck, klipspringer, jackal, duiker, hartebeest, hyena and leopard. The bird life is also varied, with over 250 species of birds recorded at the park. Visitors also catch a glimpse of Nyika's famous wildflowers - the best time for this is during the rains, and in August - September. There are also over 120 species of orchids in the plateau. Visitors can stay at the Lake Kazuni Camp.
