“Charming escape from bustle of the city”
Review of Nature Sanctuary

Nature Sanctuary
Reviewed September 1, 2014

If you're after a thrilling wildlife experience then don't waste your time. This is not a zoo or wildlife park, but a reclaimed wilderness area where animals are rehabilitated after rescue. Most come from the locality and have either been injured or recovered from illegal vendors or poachers or from some improperly run zoos such as those in Israel or Romania. There are a number if primates that had been kept in inappropriate conditions as pets. You are not guaranteed to see anything, but we were lucky enough to see a serval as well as lots of monkeys and baboons and crocodiles.

Very pleasant walk through the attractive wooded area.

The food took forever to arrive and very basic and mediocre dishes served. Sit in the garden if it's not too hot.

A had a spare day in Lilongwe so I went to the sanctuary. I joined a group of Malawians. We had a nice guide who told us a lot about the site. We had a nice afternoon.

The trails are nice to walk around, not too far from the city and you feel that you are really in a forest. The tour is OK, not too many animals to see.

Visited in the late morning - NO animals and we did not wish to see the zoo area. Good walk though, which can be a challenge in Lilongwe.
