The Malawian tourism guide about safaris in Malawi: "The big five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) can be seen in Malawi as well as a splendid range of antelope and the smaller cats such as caracel and serval. Hippos are to be found in large numbers, so much so that they are almost symbolic of Malawis wildlife. A safari in Malawi is about memorable experiences, not tick lists, plenty of game in beautiful surroundings but no convoys of vehicles characteristic of some African game parks. Visitors are relatively few in number, giving everyone the opportunity to experience all types of safari: in a 4x4, by boat, on horseback or on foot, in peaceful privacy.
Malawi is truly an ornithologists paradise. Few countries in the whole of Africa can rival Malawis range of bird species coupled with the relative ease of birdwatching. Around 650 species have been identified with over ten per cent not being seen in other parts of southern Africa. Best known is the fish eagle to be seen at the Lake and along the River Shire but, as with the Lakes fish, the range of species is breathtaking.
The variety of fish, over 600 species, to be seen in the Lake Malawi National Park is unequalled anywhere else in the world."
