Hi, hoi, hola, hallo

Safari experiences that you will not find with any other travel company. We know Africa best and will get you to the right place & time to enjoy the greatest shows on Earth!

Majete Wildlife Reserve in southwestern Malwai offers 700,000 ha (700km2) of Big 5 safari wildness to travellers who prefer off-the-beaten-track. Thanks to a flourishing joint venture between the Malawian government and African Parks, it is also one of Africa's greatest conservation success stories.

The park is known for its towering granite hills, open savannahs and beautiful miombo woodlands. Two giant rivers – the gentle Mkulumadzi River and the mighty Shire River – converge in Majete on their journey from Lake Malawi further north to join the Zambezi River and, finally, the Indian Ocean.

Majete wildlife

Your Majete safari will include searching for the Big 5 - black rhino, elephant, lion, leopard and buffalo - and other species such as cheetah, African wild dog (painted wolf), hyena, sable and roan antelope, hippopotamus, crocodile, giraffe and eland. Smaller species such as side-striped jackal, honey badger, aardvark, aardwolf and pangolin can also be seen. Over 300 bird species call Majete home - including African skimmer, rock pratincole, Arnot’s and boulder chats, racket-tailed roller, Pel’s fishing owl, cuckoo hawk, and Böhm's bee-eater.
