“Watching the elephants walk right through your camp at night!” - Lelocke

Rustic and real

Views: 393 Visited: Dec 2015 Reviewed: Jan 28, 2016

I had the pleasure of visiting Liwonde National Park in Malawi for two nights in December 2015. We stayed at 'Bushmans Camp' lodge, which I was very impressed with as a budget accommodation option. The food was particularly impressive. Wildlife could literally walk right through your camp at any point! I could have spent weeks on their viewing platform looking out at the elephants in the distance while sipping on a sundowner!

We also did a boat safari. As it was my first boat safari, I didn't really know what to expect...we ended up cruising up and down the river searching for hippos, crocs and elephants. We saw lots of all of these. There were also many water birds which were quite beautiful.

In the end, we were unfortunately limited on time and didn't get to explore much deeper into the park. I've definitely been on safaris with more variety of wildlife and fauna - however, I felt that Liwonde had a special remote charm. I wouldn't hesitate to return with some good company. :)
