The stunning rolling highlands of the Nyika Plateau are a lot like Scotland in appearance, but all-African when it comes to wildlife.
Go for a hack on horseback to dramatic rocky outcrops, soak up the panoramic views, and observe zebra, eland, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest and warthog. As for nocturnal adventures, you’re unlikely to see the glimmer of big-cat’s eyes, but may well see aardvark, porcupine and honey-badgers.
Where to stay? Wonderful Chelinda Lodge has re-opened its doors for the best in Alpine-Africa.
