Service Description

Vwaza March Wildlife Reserve is a small reserve located in Rumphi District, around 4 hours by car from the Lodge. You will sleep at the camp, under small huts or in your own tent, based in front of Kazuni Lake. The reserve is famous for the hippos in the lake but also for the elephants passing almost every day near the camp to bath or drink. Plenty baboons and vervets are also moving around. Sometimes it is possible to see a white baboon. Different possibilities for this color but it seems that the most probable is the species of baboon : the Kinda baboon. In case of an adult white baboon, the most probable cause is albinis or melanism, two genetic disorders without any other consequence than the color. During the night, you can observe the spectacular sky with the Milky Way that is clearly visible. During a game ride it is common to meet a herd of buffaloes, and many different antelopes. During a walk , you'll observe the hippos and plenty of different birds in the water or on the sides of the lake. Details of the trip : Day 1 : Departure from the lodge around 9:00am.
