Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve

Introduction

Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve covers an area of only 350km² and is Malawi's smallest park. It is located on Malawi's southernmost tip and borders with Mozambique. It is the country's least visited game reserve and is rugged, isolated with a terrain of low hills supporting a mixture of brachystegia, mopane and acacia woodland.

This is another park to have suffered greatly at the hands of poachers, large game is rarely seen, but various kinds of antelope, and lion, baboon, monkey, and a variety of birdlife can be found. There are no elephant found here but to make up for it the scenery is spectacular with views over the Shire and Zambezi rivers.

Access can be restricted due to poor road conditions and a 4x4 is advisable particularly in the raining season. The best time for game viewing is during Malawi's cooler winter months.

Mwabvi is close to Lengwe National Park and the Majete Wildlife Reserve.

Mwabvi Camp lies about 10kms from the entrance gate on the north bank of the Mwabi River . It has a couple of basic rondavels but you needs bring your own bedding as well as full food supplies. Camping is allowed at the camp and water and firewood are provided
