Here is the last newsletter from African Parks. Interesting is to note that Liuwa current Manager Robert Reid will take the position of Field Operation Manager in Siniaka Minia, Chad. I have tried to find further information about this news, but I did not find anything about. APN's interest in Siniaka Minia was released in an article a couple of years ago, but no official communication from the Chadian authorities or from our preferred NGO was done until now on this matter. I hence understand that there is a new conservation project in the air in Chad, which is great and shows the strong commitment of this country for conservation of its wildlife and natural national heritage. There are some important advances in OROA in the Swahilian ecoregion, Ennedi was declared as a World Heritage in 2015 with a project with APN to manage this area as a natural and cultural reserve, Ounianga lakes few years before, Zakouma administration was given to APN in 2010. https://africanparksreports5.org
Has anyone got a comment on this proposed itinerary for a family trip to Malawi next year? There will be 4 of us and our initial thoughts are to go early/mid June? We like this because it’s a nice mix of the bush, the beach & a chance to see something of Malawi, plus, it’s “linear” - flying into Lilongwe & out of Blantyre so avoids back tracking. We’ll have a driver for all the transfers & to take us “sightseeing” both en-route and around Zomba. Day 1: Arrive Lilongwe airport & light-aircraft transfer to Nkhotakota (Bua River Lodge for 2 nights) – game drives, walks etc, right in the elephant translocation area. Day 3: Transfer to Salima Bay (Livingstonia Hotel) ~2½hrs - on the bank of Lake Malawi & there is a cichlid breeding centre nearby Day 4: Transfer to Mumbo Island 3-4hrs including boat transfer, 10km offshore in Lake Malawi, for 3 nights of relaxation, kayaking, sailing & snorkelling. Mua Mission cultural museum is en-route. Day 7: Transfer to Liwonde NP (Mvuu camp for 3 nights) ~4½hrs including boat transfer –game drives , boat trips, walks including in the Rhino Sanctuary Day 10: Transfer to Zomba Plateau (Zomba Forest Lodge for 2 nights) ~2½hrs – the old colonial administration centre +, from the top of the plateau, “the best views in the British Empire”. Day 12: Transfer to Majete Wildlife Reserve (Thawale Lodge for 3 nights) ~2¾hrs – a final fix of game drives , boat trips and walks. Day 15: Transfer to Blantyre airport <2hrs for international flight home All feedback appreciated Thanks
