Lake Malawi and the national park which contains it

Lake Malawi is the southernmost of Africa’s great lakes and goes across 3 countries. These are Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania. Now the lake contains all sorts of wildlife, including otters, crocodiles and hippos.

The lake splits at the bottom into two short fingers, and tucked between the two, lies lake Malawi national park. While this is a relatively small park, the park is also home to a range of mammals including chacma baboons, vervet monkeys, hippopotamuses, leopards, common duikers, bushbucks, greater kudus, and klipspringers. Also to be seen are crocodiles, African fish eagles, and white-breasted cormorants as well as wading birds, kingfishers, hornbills, nightjars, kestrels, swallow-tailed bee-eaters, and many other species of birds.
