Nyika Plateau National Park

Zambia - Eastern Zambia

Nyika Plateau is a beautiful, highland area, lying on the Malawian border, at the easternmost tip of Zambia. The park is an extension of the National Park on the Malawian side, incorporating the part of the plateau crossing the border.

Sitting 2 000 metres above sea level, the views from the Plateau are spectacular with dramatic cloud formations on the horizon. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in Africa. The higher elevations are open, undulating grasslands with incised valleys, creating panoramic views, slopes of wildflowers, rolling green hills, rocky outcrops, and small, tropical forests. Due to the elevation of Nyika Plateau, it is pleasantly warm during the day as opposed to the intense heat of the valley below.
