Chimwenya National park Malawi – Malawi wildlife safaris and tours
Chimwenya national park Malawi – Chimwenya Game Park is a serene, beautiful and privately owned 500 acre game park, home to the impressive Game haven lodge. The park is one of the last remaining indigenous forests and grasslands of the Shire Highlands of Southern Malawi. It lies at Bvumbwe, approximately 20 km south-east of Blantyre shortly before the Thyolo tea estate and on the way to mount Mulanje.
Visitors to Chimwenya can experience exceptional viewing of wildlife which include giraffe, zebra, the ‘big 6′ antelopes: kudu, eland, roan, sable, nyala and waterbuck, and for birdwatchers, prolific birdlife.
As well as the wildlife and beautiful scenery, within the park is the internationally designed and constructed Peter Matkovich 9 hole golf course, which combines the amazing natural environment with a challenging course. The Mbawa Country Club offers a sports bar for post-game refreshment and Chimwenya also has a large children’s’ playground. Lake Bvumbwe lies entirely within the park and is well stocked for fishing.
