Nyika National Park Fauna, Flora and Bibliography

In 2017 NVT published ‘Nyika – A guide to Nyika National Park, Malawi‘ by Sigrid Anna Johnson. This has now been issued as a pdf (with minor revisons): Nyika – A guide to Nyika National Park, Malawi (2023 PDF Edition). We are most grateful to Sigrid for making the guide freely available.

NVT has prepared species checklists, and a bibliography to assist researchers and visitors.
