Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve

Travel to Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve – Fantastic Safari Options

Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve is a haven for wild animals and birds. In this beautiful surrounding you can have a real safari experience and enjoy staying at traditional rondavels (huts).

Thanks to its abundance and variety of wildlife, Vwaza Marsh is rated as one of the best reserves in Africa for game viewing from the lodge.

Vwasa Wildlife Reserve is an area of marsh and plain with a few rocky outcrops, lying along the Zambian border north-west of Mzuzu. The reserve covers an area of 1000 square kilometres.

The reserve has a wonderful mix of vegetation, mainly forest and grassland, thin woodland and marsh. It is this rich habitat which attracts a splendid range of birdlife.

Nearly 300 species of birds have been recorded including stork, heron and the white-faced tree duck. Herds of thirty or forty elephants are regularly to be seen and there are large numbers of hippos. Lake Kazuni, near the main entrance to the reserve is famous for its hippos. Buffalo are present in the reserve but their roaming habits make their sightings less easy to predict. As in Nyika, there are also plenty of smaller mammals.

Visitors can take part in game drives as well as walking safaris.
