Tracking wildlife in the heavy rainy season isn't easy, but patience pays off - as our monitoring team found out when they recently spotted the newest arrivals to the Chinguni lion pride in Liwonde National Park! 

In others news, we're pleased to report that Malawi has recently been awarded the 'Safe Travels' stamp of approval by the World Travel & Tourism Council, which means it meets global standards in health and safety in relation to COVID-19. Of course this doesn't mean that the risk has disappeared, but hopefully it will give travellers renewed confidence in visiting the 'Warm Heart' of Africa. 

As such, there's no better time to book a placement with our team! Why not check out our programmes for veterinary medicine, sanctuary work, wildlife monitoring and more.

Exciting news from our monitoring team in Liwonde National Park as new lion cubs are identified in the Chinguni Pride! We've been working hard to confirm successful breeding in this pride after witnessing multiple mating events and, after a lot of patience, we were lucky enough to catch a quick sighting of mum and three cubs. These little ones will soon be introduced to the rest of the pride to learn crucial life skills.

Huge thanks to the rangers, guides and wildlife enthusiasts who have been reporting sightings of the vultures we tagged as part of our new research project back in November 2020. Data from these reports is shedding light on how vultures use the mosaic of parks and wildlife reserves in Malawi's Southern Region. Excitingly, one bird was spotted in Chisamba, Zambia - 780km away from where it was originally tagged!
