The perfect safari holiday in the Nyika Plateau

Rolling hills, babbling mountain streams and evergreen forests make this one of Malawi's most beautiful regions

Mountain streams, river valleys and occasional pockets of evergreen forest, Nyika Plateau is one of Malawi’s loveliest spots. It’s perfect for trekking and walking safaris as well as conventional 4x4 game drives.

Reaching a height of over 2600 metres above sea level and covering an area of 3200sq kms, Nyika is Malawi’s largest national park. The game here is rather more limited than in some of Malawi’s other reserves, such as Majete, but the bucolic scenery, and temperate climate, more than compensates.

North Malawi has been described as a forgotten region. It has a different character from the rest of the country, recognisable in its scenery and its people.
