lilongwe wildlife centre playgroundLilongwe Wildlife Centre, which was first opened in 2008 as Lilongwe Wildlife Trust’s pilot project, is Malawi’s only wildlife sanctuary and renowned as one of the best in Africa. Set in 180 hectares of beautiful woodland, it is home to around 200 rescued wild animals. The wildlife centre is also the country’s largest environmental education facility and protects an important urban wildlife reserve.

We’re open to visitors all year round and every kwacha raised through visitors goes back into our sanctuary operations, providing a much-needed lifeline for orphaned and injured wild animals – so thanks for your support!
