Vwaza Marsh Game Reserve is located in the north of Malawi, guests often visit en-route to Nyika National Park. In contrast to the Nyika National Park on the Nyika Plateau much of Vwaza is located on low lying flat ground although the eastern side of the park is hilly. This reserve is characterised by Mopane and Miombo woodland and marshy wetlands which attracts a significant number of birds to the reserve. Vwaza Marsh is rarely visited by many. One of our most memorable elephant encounters took place in this reserve. The variation in animal numbers and types of species vary from season to season as they cross the border with the North Luangwa National Park in Zambia. Large herds of buffalo and elephants, and a large variety of antelope including roan, greater kudu, Liechtenstein’s hartebeest, eland and impala are generally to be found. Birdlife include Goliath Herons, Openbill Storks and the rare White-winged Starling. Lake Kazuni supports a notable hippo population. We enjoy the solitude to be found here.
