Guests at Kuthengo Camp shared a special moment with the elephants of Liwonde National Park.
Recent guests at Robin Pope Safaris’ Kuthengo Camp , which is on the banks of the Shire River flowing through the wildlife-rich Liwonde National Park, were treated to a memorable experience whilst on a river boat cruise.
They came across a large herd of elephants that were taking a drink from the river and finally crossing over to the other bank. Some of the elephants stop to check out this strangle creature moving in the water, whilst others are engrossed in the business of quenching their thirst.
Liwonde National Park is situated at the southern-most tip of Lake Malombe in the south of Malawi. As it makes its way to the Zambezi River, the Shire River – the largest in the country – flows into the park, feeding the fauna and flora that call it home. This includes over 500 elephants that love to munch on the lush green grasses on the Shire’s banks as well as sip its deliciously cool water.
