Majete Wildlife Reserve

Majete Wildlife Reserve

Majete Wildlife Reserve is located off the main M1 road in the Lower Shire Valley and has been under new management since 2003 and has undergone massive regeneration.

There have been  many changes in the park over the recent years including fence constructions and the introduction of new animals including black rhinos, elephants, eland, buffalo, impala, sable and waterbuck.

Wildlife that you can currently see in the park includes black rhino, elephants, over 350 buffalos and many waterbuck, sable antelope, nyala, zebra, Liechtenstein’s hartebeests, kudu, and many more species.  There are currently over 2000 animals in the reserve.

In August 2012, Malawi’s Majete Wildlife Reserve became the proud recipient of four lions from South Africa, completing the return of the “Big Five” to this iconic reserve.  The reintroduction of lions marks a significant milestone in the rehabilitation of the 70 000 hectare Majete reserve.

You can also see The Kapichira Falls; one of the best views in Malawi, with water crashing over rock formations that were formed thousands of years ago. Beautiful sedimentary and metamorphic patterns can be found in the architecture of the rock.
