Package Itinerary

Set in a forest reserve in the heart of the capital city, the award winning Wildlife Centre – a project of the Lilongwe Wildlife Trust – is open to both volunteers and day visitors. It is Malawi’s only wildlife sanctuary, caring for over 200 animals rescued mostly from the illegal pet and bushmeat trades, and is widely regarded in welfare circles as one of Africa’s best run facilities.

Day visitors can take a 1 hour guided tour of the sanctuary, spotting the animals and learning about the charity’s work, or walk the 4km of nature trails winding along the river through the reserve which is home to antelopes, crocodiles and over 150 species of bird. There’s also a bar, restaurant, playground and gift shop. Large groups (8+) can pre-book a conservation session with the education team too.

Lilongwe Wildlife Trust also offers a range of placement opportunities that allow volunteers to work with its team of international and local experts to gain direct experience of conservation work. Placements range from wildlife rehabilitation and vet medicine to research. The team is also happy to tailor placements to people’s skills and passions, so you can also get in touch to explore a more bespoke opportunity if you can’t see exactly what you’re looking for.
