Birding and Enjoying Wildlife in
Malawi and Zambia
Southern Malawi Birding: Malawi is an attractive country of plateaus, rolling plains, lakes, mountains, forests and vast Miombo woodlands. It is fast becoming recognized as one of Africa’s essential birding destinations. Our Southern Malawi Birding tour, combined with our Nyika Extension, has been specially designed to target the many near-endemic birds found in the vast broad-leaved woodlands of Dzalanyama and on the high mountain plateaus of Nyika and Viphya in the north of the country. Whether birding the broad-leaved Brachystegia or montane forests, a feature of this region is the multi-species feeding flocks that create a riot of activity. Many of the lodges we use on this trip are surprisingly luxurious. Birders will also realize how rewarding and diverse Malawi's birding and game viewing is.
