A beautiful park. Great variety of animals. Amazing wildlife. But unfortunately no heart for the people who live next to the park. It is obvious that this park offers everything you can imagine for rich tourists. One sees regularly small airplanes landing in the park, there are expensive safari camps etc.. But unfortunately no safe fence that prevents the elephants from destroying the fields of the incredibly poor people who live next to the park. Animal welfare is important, but here it seems to be just an opportunity to make money. And this at the expense of the black population around it.
It is not understandable why no proper elephant proof fence surrounds the park. Such a thing would be easy to accomplish with reasonable effort. It is a pity. The park earns so much money and does so much good for the animals in the park. But for the people in the direct neighbourhood it would be better if this park did not exist.

Elephants of Liwonde National Park are continually destroying the much needed crops and dwellings of needy local Malawian people. A financially strong National Park like Liwonde should see to it that their animals are well fed and kept secure behind strong fences. Why should your elephants feed on poor, hungry and innocent people’s only income? Come on, show some integrity and take care of your good neighbours’ crops, houses and property, please, Liwonde!

Je n’y suis jamais allé mais lorsque je lis les différents avis et que je vois que les éléphants ont plus d’importance que les enfants et les habitants du pays c’est une honte
Cela démontre que le discours écolo va en fait à l’encontre du développement des pays africains
Oh oui c’est sûr que c’est super pour nous les riches ces parcs nationaux avec plein d’éléphants mais si un éléphant venait écraser notre maison que dirions nous ?

Been there quite a number of times with my family. It’s always a fantastic experience of wildlife viewing and fresh air. Malawi is a beautiful Haven in Central Africa.

I recently visited some friends that live along the border of the park and what I experienced is horrifying as well as sad.
Night after night in the dark I heard many screams coming from the village and then my friends told me, “The elephants are out again tonight.”
I was shocked to hear that the elephants very often roam freely in and out of the park and simply trample on the fence to go out and feed on the maize and rice crops of the very poor local people. And sometimes they also roam into the villages and cause serious damage to the mud and thatch houses of the people. The people store their harvested crops inside their houses and then the elephants often come and break open the house and eat as much as they like.
One night I witnessed how the elephants broke down the fence and entered into harvested cropland where maize were stacked in heaps to dry. I managed to take a few pictures and I will post them on this forum.
It is really terrible and sad that the elephants can be allowed to roam freely and eat, trample and destroy the crops of poor local people. I understand from the local people’s testimonies that this causes terrible hunger in the area for long periods of time throughout the year. These people work very hard in their fields for weeks and then the elephants just come and eat it all and the poor people are completely defenseless against the elephants.
I sincerely hope that the park management will do something proper very soon to keep their elephants inside the park for the sakes of the local people.
