Lilongwe Wildlife Centre, LWT’s first project, opened in 2008.  It is Malawi’s only wildlife sanctuary – renowned as one of the best in Africa and home to around 200 rescued animals – and also stands as the country’s leading  environmental education facility. It is set in a stunning 180 hectare wildlife reserve that was placed under LWT’s protection by the Government.  

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.  

Take a guided sanctuary tour or walk the 4km of trails along the river and through the forest.  There’s also a cafe, gift shop and playground.

Pricing and opening hours can be found here. For enquiries please call +265 (0) 88 17 88 999 or email centre@lilongwewildlife.orgFor Cuneco Cafe please call 0997 000015.
