Majete Wildlife Reserve

The Majete Wildlife Reserve lies in the South Western area of the country, to the west of the Shire River. It spans an area of approximately 691km?, with low hills mainly covered with brachystegia woodland, with denser patches of forest along the river.


After years of heavy poaching African Parks Network took over management in 2003. Since than a lot has changed. The Reserve is completely fenced, has over 250 km of good roads, has a very professional Law Enforcement team and is restocked with over 4,000 animals including, elephant, rhino, buffalo, zebra, eland, hartebeest, kudu, nyala, waterbuck, impala, warthog, hippo et cetera. Soon the big cats will be reintroduced; cheetah, lion and leopard. The park is also appreciated for the Shire River, especially the Kapichira Falls, which are situated close to the park entrance.

It is a wilderness area where bird watching is very favourable and, provided you are escorted by a game scout, you are allowed to walk around.
