Lake Malawi National Park is located in the southern part of Lake Malawi, the fourth largest freshwater lake in the world. This lake is the biggest water resource of Malawi and surrounding countries. Lake Malawi National Park has been on the UNESCO list since 1984, mostly due to the multitude of fish species in the lake waters. Cichlids stand out in particular, and the locally known fish mbuna, which is especially interesting to scientists in the study of evolution. In addition to fish, the park is home to hippos, crocodiles, kudus, antelopes, leopards, baboons, and many more. A visit to Lake Malawi National Park is probably the most extensive attraction in Malawi, so be prepared to spend a few days here.
