Vacation travel video about destination Liwonde National Park in Malawi. The Liwonde National Park is situated in Central Africa and is Malawi’s most well known game reserve.Up until 1962 unrestricted poaching and hunting almost entirely eradicated the wildlife population of the region but in 1969 it was designated as a game reserve and, in 1973, as a national park. The Shire River is the region’s lifeline and more than two thousand hippos inhabit a forty kilometre section of the park. The park’s elephants are no longer slaughtered for their valuable tusks and their numbers, too, are increasing substantially. At the park’s watering holes groups of animals repeatedly gather to drink, an ideal opportunity to observe animals in the wild. Thankfully, the Liwonde National Park is now a natura...
With a slightly different commentary this video showcases all that Malawi has to offer with its friendly people, breathing taking scenery and amazing wildlife.

Lake Malawi National Park is a national park located in Malawi at the southern end of Lake Malawi. It is the only national park in Malawi that was created to protect fish and aquatic habitats. Despite this, Lake Malawi National Park does include a fair amount of land, including several small islands in Lake Malawi. It is also home to other animals such as baboons. A large baobab tree, purportedly over 800 years old, is said to have been a favourite of Dr. David Livingstone as a place where he could give sermons and speak with other missionaries. The graves of five early missionaries are also found in the park. The many endemic fish species make it a key example of specialized evolution. For this characteristic, it was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

*Malawi elephant relocation footage courtesy of African Parks* Between 2007 and 2014, elephant populations dropped by 30% in Africa primarily because of poaching. Currently, the population is declining at 8% per year. Luckily, there are people and organizations passionate enough about these enormous animals that they are willing to take a stand against all odds. The 500 Elephant Project is the continent’s largest translocation of elephants to a 42,000-acre preserve within Malawi’s Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, managed by the non-profit organization African Parks from the Majete Wildlife Reserve and Liwonde National Park. We bring you the whole story on this giant effort to move Africa’s largest giants to their new home.
