Liwonde National Park
Although one of Malawi’s smaller parks, Liwonde National Park is arguably the most popular of thema ll. The Shire River, the largest in Malawi, forms its western boundary and is the reserve’s life blood. With plentiful water, hippos, crocodiles and elephants are in good supply and black rhino has been re-introduced into the area. The birding is excellent, among the more interesting species is the Pel’s fishing owl.
The park was proclaimed in 1973 after Chief Liwonde fought for its recognition as an area of importance for Malawian wildlife heritage. To this day local chiefs and farmers remain on the Liwonde National Park committee.
