Liwonde is perhaps the most popular of all the game parks. Game viewing is enhanced because the River Shire flows along its western border, allowing boat safaris as well as the usual ones on foot or in 4x4s. Wildlife includes quite large numbers of elephants and the river attracts countless hippos and crocodiles. Antelope include kudu, sable and bushbuck. There are leopards and hyena and the occasional visiting lion. Black rhino has been re-introduced.
