Welcome to Lilongwe Nature Sanctuary and Wildlife Centre

Lilongwe Nature Sanctuary and Wildlife Centre

Set in the heart of Malawi's capital, the Lilongwe Nature Sanctuary is home to the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre, a new and exciting 'People and Wildlife' wild animal rescue and rehabilitation facility. The nature sanctuary is the city's only remaining wilderness area and the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre also serves as an education centre aiming to teach visitors about the rich diversity of Malawi's fauna. A luxury tourist lodge has been opened in the Nature Sanctuary and guests will not only benefit from being able to stay in this wilderness area within the city bounds, but a part of the profits will be donated to the centre's work.

Information & Facts

English is the official language, but Chichewa is more commonly spoken.

The official currency is the Malawi Kwacha (MWK), which is divided into 100 tambalas. Travellers cheques and foreign currencies are accepted by banks, authorised hotels and other institutions in the main town centres; bureaux de change are also available. The US dollar is the easiest currency to exchange. Credit cards are not widely accepted and ATMs are scarce and should not be relied upon. Exchanging currency on the black market is not recommended.
