Beauty in Stone - Mwabvi

 

Not yet known for its  animal life, Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve presents its beauty in stone.

 

Once home to the last black rhinoceros known to have lived in Malawi, Mwabvi Wildlife Reserve is now under the management of Project African Wilderness (PAW) who, in a few short years, have managed to reduce the heavy poaching that almost resulted in the complete eradication of animals from the area. With more effective control measures, the establishment of fire breaks and the opening of new roads, signs can be seen of a gradual increase in animal numbers with many sightings of impala, kudu,buffalo, duiker and grysbok.

 

 

PAW intend to reintroduce all of the species that once existed in the Reserve.

 

In the meantime,this area of great natural beauty, with its wide variety of vegetation types and weird and wonderful sandstone formations, is a nature lover’s paradise. It is especially rewarding for keen walkers. Most interesting is the signposted walk to the Mwabvi Gorge which takes the visitor through fairly open woodland and over gently undulating country via the Rock of Doves and a mwabvi or poison ordeal tree (erythrophleum suaveolens).

But Mwabvi’s story is  best told in pictures...
