About Majete Wildlife Reserve

Nestled in the Great African Rift Valley, Majete Wildlife Reserve sprawls over 700 square kilometers, offering a picturesque landscape that includes grassy plains, forests of acacia, marula, and leadwood trees, palm groves, and the occasional baobab tree. The park serves as a sanctuary for a diverse range of wildlife, including the Big 5 of Africa – black rhino, elephant, buffalo, lion, and leopard – along with antelope, warthogs, and a thriving population of crocodiles and hippos in the Shire River. Lodging options range from chalets to the scenic campsite overlooking the Matitu Falls. Majete is a true conservation success story, having reintroduced over 2500 animals into the reserve since 2003.

There is no shortage of wildlife activities to enjoy in Majete. Game drives in the morning or afternoon are a favorite, but exploring the park on foot is also highly recommended, especially during the cooler early mornings.

Malawi is affectionately known as the “Warm Heart of Africa,” and its people truly embody this moniker. Malawians are incredibly friendly and welcoming, and visitors can explore market scenes, roadside stalls, and cottage industries with ease. The scenic beauty and cultural richness of Malawi make it a great country to explore by car.
