Oft-overlooked Malawi boasts a rich variety of bird-life and mammals – including the big five. As with most African countries population pressures have restricted game to national parks and game reserves, and whilst not as popular as it’s large East and Southern African neighbors, Malawi still offers comparable game viewing. The best time of the year for visiting national parks in Malawi is between August and November in dry season.
