As part of the historic elephant translocation in Malawi led by African Parks in 2016 and 2017, 520 elephants and 1500 game animals were moved from Liwonde National Park and Majete Wildlife Reserve to Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve where Tongole Wilderness Lodge is located.

Buffalo were among the group and, recently, some of the guests had the privilege of seeing them on their way past Tongole Wilderness Lodge. This is a rare sighting was an exciting occasion for all. The picture below was taken from a distance.

A wilderness safari in the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve by foot, canoe or game drive is as unique as the rugged and varied landscape. The reserve is Malawi’s oldest and least-developed protected area.

Most of the reserve is miombo woodland with vast patches of tall grasses and some lush rainforest. It is quite possibly Malawi’s last truly unexploited wildlife area, making it a stunning and unique location to explore on a wilderness safari.
