Lilongwe Wildlife Centre was set up in 2007 as a People and Wildlife Centre, the first of its kind in the world, taking over a 120 hectares of wilderness right in the heart of Malawi’s capital city. Not only is it the sole wildlife sanctuary for orphaned and rescued wild animals in Malawi it is also a centre for the people, operating extensive community outreach and education programmes. The project believes it can make a real difference working with the local communities in terms of raising awareness of the importance of respecting our environment and keeping wildlife in the wild, whilst also providing alternatives to practices such as deforestation and the illegal bush meat trade.

Work with over 250 rescued animals, including carnivores, primates, mammals, reptiles, birds and antelopes. Alongside project staff you can get involved with all aspects of animal care, from assisting the vet to helping with releases. Take care of rescued baby orphans providing surrogacy work, bottle feeding, playing and providing all aspects of care until they enter the next phase of the rehabilitation programme and are prepared for release back into the wild.

Enjoy a night safari to see the nocturnal animals at the centre come to life. Search for elusive porcupines and bushbabies.  You will be involved with maintaining and improving the Wilderness Reserve, which offers fantastic biodiversity with animals such as hyena, crocodiles, numerous insect and bird species, along with amazing examples of hardwood trees and even rare orchids.  Enjoy riverside picnics, bird watching, partaking in ongoing mammal censuses or helping to improve education signs. The extensive education and community projects are crucial to offer long term commitment to conservation. Help local communities to support and benefit from conservation in a sustainable manner.
