Vwaza Marsh Game Reserve
The Vwasa Marsh wildlife Reserve is a 1000 km2 area, west of Nyika Plateau, and located along the Zambian border.
The reserve consists of forest and grassland, thin woodland and marsh plain.
The government camp here closed down in 2007 and so tourist infrastructure is still under-developed, however there is a high concentration of game. Lake Kazuni is filled with hippo and the surrounding land is home to herds of elephant and buffalo. Birdlife in the reserve is also outstanding, with approximately 300 recorded species. Accommodation comes in the form of MEOF Safari Lodge & Camp, a budget lodge located near Vwaza that was established by a German charity with the intention to provide a sustainable income for the local community.
