This reserve is nestled beneath the Chipata Mountain, it offers a vast network of rivers weaving their way through wooded hills, nourishing the dense miombo forests that make up Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve. The reserve is 19000ha and had over 1500 elephants in 1990 but it decreased as the wild was hunted out. Nkhotakota became an empty reserve with practically now wildlife left and giving travellers no reason to visit. But due to new management this all has changed.
African Parks took over management of the park in 2015 with a vision to bringing it back to life. After a 2 year period the park received a large number of elephants and other animals. Poaching was reduced through a well-trained and equipped ranger team. This is Malawi's largest, and oldest, National Park.
