The best place to see leopards in Malawi
Nyika Plateau

In northern Malawi lies the Nyikya Plateau. With its rolling hills dotted with stunning mountain outcrops and windswept grasslands full of heather, this really could be straight out of the Scottish Highlands – it is no wonder that Livingstone had such a strong connection to this country. Located at an altitude of 2,500 metres, this is the perfect escape from the heat of safari. Much of this area is protected under the Nyikya National Park and, apart from the stunning natural scenery and unique flora, this is also home to significant numbers of wildlife - large herds of roan, reedbuck, zebra and eland are common here, as well as leopards, servals and spotted hyenas.
