On a trip through Malawi we made our way to the unbelievable and mind blowing reserve in northern Malawi, Nyika national park on the Nyika plateau. We birded our lives away and came back with some amazing new species such as Bar Tailed Trogon, Malawi batis, Blue Swallows, Montane widowbird, Bertrams and Baglefecht weaver just to name a few. However it offers great mammal viewing with abundant Roan antelope, crawshays zebra, bushbuck, reedbuck, leopard and plenty serval. It was believed to once hold the highest concentration of Leopard in Africa and this is easily believed as there where countless signs daily of these cats’ nocturnal movements. The Crawshays Zebra is confined to the eastern reaches of Zambia, Malawi, south-eastern Tanzania and northern Mozambique. They are differentiated by having a unique tooth structure, narrower stripes and very seldom show the typical shadow stripes of the more common plains zebra. The vast open grasslands bedded with ferns allow for some amazing oppurtunities to photograph these amazing animals.
