Malawi is blessed with a rich diversity of flora and fauna with nine National Parks and Wildlife Reserves.
It may not have the sheer numbers of large mammals as some of its better known neighbours, it makes up for this in other ways by providing exclusive wildlife viewing in unspoilt areas of genuine wilderness with very few other visitors looking on. In recent years the Parks and Reserves have undergone something of a transformation, with private concessionaires helping to improve conservation resulting in a boom in wildlife numbers and so far, two of its parks & reserves are now home to the ‘Big 5’.
