Description [ correction ]

The Nyika National Park in Malawi and the Nyika National Park in Zambia form a Transfrontier Conservation Area. Nyika means 'where the water comes from.' Because of its high altitude (2 400m) this park has no risk of malaria. The park offers a blend of Miombo woodland, forests and rolling grassland. It also has rare orchids that bloom in summer, more than 400 bird species and large herds of antelope and zebra. Activities include hiking, mountain biking and trout fishing.

This is a lovely park to visit. Because of its high altitude it offers a great escape during the hot summer months. The wild orchids are also in full bloom then.
