KASUNGU NATIONAL PARK

Kasungu National Park is 2500 square kilometres in size and is located in the Central Region of Malawi, about 160 Km north of the capital, Lilongwe. It has a rich historical importance as it is renowned for spectacular archaeological sites, the notable one being an iron smelting furnace and some rock paintings that are assumed to be pre-Bantu. Elephants and antelopes are common as are small herds of buffaloes and zebras. There also exist a significant number of hippos, hyenas, and wild dogs.
