Experiencing One of Malawi’s Last Truly Unexploited Wildlife Areas

The award winning Tongole Wilderness Lodge is set deep within the beautiful miombo woodland of the 1,800 km² Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve. Tongole is the only luxury lodge in the reserve, drawing those who seek an exceptional wilderness experience in one of Malawi’s last truly unexploited wildlife areas.

News over the past year comes in the fact that one of the world’s largest elephant translocations, 500 elephants, commenced to Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve in 2016 and continues in 2017.

With populations of elephants across Africa under serious threat, African Parks, in cooperation with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife, has undertaken to move up to 500 elephants from Liwonde National Park and Majete Wildlife Reserve, where populations are too high for these conservation areas to sustain, to the 1,800 square kilometre wilderness of the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve.
