Lying on the Great African Rift Valley floor, the Park is over 500 square kilometres and the only home in Malawi to the Big Five mammals. Over 400 bird species are also resident among the diverse brachtegia, mopane, and riverine woodlands, palm savannahs and the associated marshy floodplains.The Shire River does not dry up like so many other African rivers. Thousands of hippos and crocodiles live in these abundant waters. Grazing in the floodplain are waterbuck, sable and impala antelope whilst herds of elephant drink and bathe in the river. The highlight of a visit to Liwonde is a river cruise. An astonishing number of bird species inhabit the park, among which are the brilliant Lillian’s Lovebirds, the Brown Breasted Barbet, Pel’s Fishing Owl and Palmnut Vulture.
