Nyika is Malawi’s largest national park situated in the northern highlands of the country and made up of rolling grassy hills surrounded by steep escarpments and interspersed with forested valleys, most of which are above 2,000 meters above sea level. The park offers some of the best views in Malawi. A variety of different game can be seen such as eland, roan antelope, zebra, hyenas and leopards. Furthermore, the park has over 400 species of birds and is a bird watchers’ paradise, with high lights such as Denhams Bustard, wattled crane and red-winged francolin. During and after the rainy season over 200 species of orchid can be seen — a breathtakingly beautiful sight!
