Nyika National Park

The 3,134km2 Nyika National Park, Malawi's largest park, is a wild, untouched and remote upland area. with the distinction of being the only big game Afro-montane area in south-central Africa. The vistas in this Park are immense with high-altitude grassland the most obvious feature of the Nyika Plateau. Isolated hills and ridges, and evergreen forest pockets bursting with endemism add further character to the rolling hills, whilst extensive swathes of broad-leafed miombo woodland dominate the lower slopes. Nyika is a botanist's delight in summer with alpine flowers that include 11 localised orchid species, exquisite dieramas, gladioli, protea and kniphofia. Nyika also harbours important populations of roan, eland, Crawshay's zebra, southern reedbuck, bushbuck, warthog, spotted hyaena and side-striped jackal. Elephant and leopard can be seen at times. Approximately 400 bird species occur in Nyika, many with highly restricted distributions, making it a key birding destination in Africa.
