Majete Wildlife Reserve, Chikwawa

#1 of 13 in Wildlife in Malawi
Participate in the conservation of Malawi's wildlife while you tour the habitat at Majete Wildlife Reserve. As you explore the reserve with a guide, you'll learn how the endangered and threatened species that are cared for here get rescued and rehabilitated. Once a prolific wildlife refuge, the reserve's resources were all but used up by the end of the 20th. Thankfully, in 2003 a project to reintroduce animals into the wild commenced, and has since transformed the reserve into a haven for elephants, zebras, hippos, and many other rare animal species.
