Majete Wildlife Reserve

Nestled in the south-western part of Malawi, with its rugged wilderness of hilly woodland and savannah hugging the west bank of the Shire River, comes Majete Wildlife Reserve.

Following heavy poaching in the 1970s and 1980s, Majete is a true underdog, now being one of the most popular reserves in Malawi.

From having most of its species wiped out to becoming Malawi’s only Big Five Park, one can see why visitors become so enamoured with this place. Due to its unique story, the park became a conservation case study, leaving researchers and safari-lovers enchanted by this exciting destination.

Having been managed by African Parks since 2003, more than 2,500 animals have been reintroduced, including not only the Big Five, but sable, waterbuck, impala, zebra and warthog.

Come and support the astonishing efforts taking place here, whilst, of course, enjoying a first-class safari experience.
