Malawi elephants relocation

11.07.2022 After several years of intense wildlife conservation, the Liwonde National Park in southern Malawi is being decongested. Subsequently the 250 elephants will be relocated from this reserve to the Kasungu National Park in the centre of the East African country.

The waste operation, which will be carried out during July 2022 by the Malawi government and its partners, aims to alleviate pressure on the habitat and reduce potential human-wildlife conflicts.

The Malawi Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW), the conservation organisation African Parks and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) are organising a complicated animal decongestion operation in Liwonde National Park in southern Malawi. The animals will be transported about 350 km by road from Liwonde National Park, managed by African Parks, to Kasungu National Park, supported by IFAW.
