Liwonde National Park lies on the east bank of the Shire River in southern Malawi. Untouched with scenic views and a hippo-filled river running through it, the park is a true reflection of beautiful African safari land. Venture out in 4WD vehicle, on foot or by boat to view the wildlife, including elephant, lion, leopard, warthog, greater kudu, Vervet monkey, baboon, impala, waterbuck, bushbuck, mongoose, crocodile and Monitor lizard. Through conservation efforts, the black rhino has been introduced and the population has now grown to 10, but it can be a challenge to spot them in the brush. The park is ideal for birdwatchers, and photographic opportunities of the gorgeous orchids and lilies in full bloom just after the rains.
