Travelling to Malawi can sound like a lot of fun, but even better is to travel to Malawi's largest park - Nyika National Park - for a holiday.
Nyika is Malawi’s largest park an covers an area of more than 3200 sq km. It extends across the great plateau which is essentially a granitic dome and its environment is like none other in the whole of Africa.
The park covers practically the whole of the Nyika Plateau in northern Malawi, about 480km north of Lilongwe and 60km north of Rumphi by road.
The name, Nyika, means "where the water comes from" and it is, indeed, one of Malawi’s most important catchment areas.
Visitors to the park are treated to views of over 400 species of birds, as well as antelope, warthog, bush pig, elephants, leopards and other small wild cats.
