A ROUND UP FROM WILDERNESS SAFARIS
Industry: Safari       

It’s been a busy period once again for Wilderness Safari, with new roads opening, new packages now available and new colourations ahead of the City of Stars event (click here read more about the City of Stars Collaboration).

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - July 15th, 2013 - It’s been a busy period once again for Wilderness Safari, with new roads opening, new packages now available and new colourations ahead of the City of Stars event (click here read more about the City of Stars Collaboration).

One of the most exciting new announcements is of a new walking safari – just for kids! Sometimes on safari parents need a break from their kids, or equally important the kids need a break from their parents! On busy weekends, Mvuu Camp organise kids walking safaris. Now don’t worry, children won’t be left face to face with any of Malawi’s big five, but instead it’s an opportunity for them to scour the camp grounds for plants and insects – learning as they go. Chaperoned and assisted by guides, children will learn stories and information about the discoveries they find. A great break for the parents and an enjoyable experience for the kids who always participate with great enthusiasm.

Chelinda (Nyika National Park) : Uninterrupted Views
A new access road to the Chelinda Camp Chalets, going behind the chalets is almost complete. This will mean that guests can now enjoy undisturbed views across the dam and beyond. The old road will be filled and landscaped making for a more picturesque view of this stunning backdrop.

Chelinda is in the heart of the beautiful and unique Nyika Plateau, a large area of grassland rising to 8000 ft / 2400 m in north Malawi. Made famous by Laurens van der Post in his Venture to the Interior, the plateau is a carpet of orchids when in season and home to zebra, countless antelope (including the massive Eland), hyena, leopards and elephant; to say nothing of the hundreds of different bird species.

Liwonde National Park Road Mvuu now open
The rainy season is now truly over, and after some roadworks it is now possible to reach Mvuu Camp all the way by road. It is still recommended that visitors use four-wheel drive vehicles, but high clearance two wheel drive vehicles should also be able to pass through with ease.

Rhino Tracking Experience
In an admirable example of effective collaboration between concerned conservation bodies, the Malawi Department of National Parks, Bentley Palmer and Wilderness Safaris the last set of Black rhino in Liwonde national park will be darted and collared in an effort to enhance their monitoring and security.

In November 2102 mutual concern over the safety of the black rhino in Liwonde National Park inspired Wilderness Safaris, Bentley Palmer and the Department of National Parks to work together on a plan for the long term survival of this important population. The first step in this plan was to establish accurate monitoring and better security for the existing rhino. This led to darting and collaring of 6 of the 14 rhino with assistance from Pete Morkel, a renowned rhino vet which allowed for easier control and monitoring. With radio colours providers by The Wilderness Trust, the programme is already baring great fruits and its become clear that the survival of the Liwonde Rhino is dependant on this programme. 

Some Recent Guest Feedback
…Had a great time – it was lovely. Saw a lot of animals. Jim the guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable and the breakfast by the river was a nice touch… All in all a super trip (Kayes – Malawi)

…Thank you--we had a really wonderful stay in Mvuu camp. It was the highlight of our short trip (to SA, Malawi and Nigeria). We were blessed with good weather (no rain) and a really excellent guide--McLoud. His knowledge of the Park, of its animals and plants, was wonderful. He's a real asset to your company. The food was good, everyone in the camp was really helpful and friendly, and we loved every minute of our time there. I'm pleased that we entered the camp by boat up the river from Liwonde--a really beautiful and interesting way to start. Thank you to all of you. We will recommend Mvuu Camp to our friends. Best wishes (J.Bamford – UK)
