At 220 sq miles (580 sq km), Liwonde is perhaps the most popular of all of Malawi’s game parks, with its beautiful riverine setting and teeming wildlife offering thrilling safaris. It is approximately 100 miles (160 kilometres) north of Blantyre and less than half that distance from the hotels on the Mangochi Lakeshore. The River Shire runs along its western border, allowing for boat safaris in addition to the usual ones on foot or in 4x4s.

The wildlife includes a large number of elephants, and the river attracts a large number of hippos and crocodiles. Lion, cheetah, and wild dog have recently been reintroduced into Liwonde with the assistance of African Parks, which took over management of the Park in 2015 and is continuing to transform Liwonde into a first-rate safari destination. Kudu, sable, and bushbuck are examples of antelope. Leopards, hyaenas, and black rhinos are also seen on occasion. The birdlife is extremely diverse. The river attracts fish eagles, and weaver birds nest in the sparse woodland. Pel’s fishing owl is frequently seen along the river’s edge at dusk.

Activities include:

  1. Safari
  2. Boat Riding
  3. Camping
  4. Lodging in the national park
