Liwonde and Mangochi are at the centre of a major economic hub in southern and eastern Malawi. Tourism revenue has increased almost threefold from 2021 which not only benefits the park, but also community members, small business operators and informal traders around the park.
A range of accommodation options all contribute to park revenue, from Chimwala Camp, a self-catering camp with spacious en-suite safari tents in the south of the park, to third party-owned lodges, such as Mvuu Lodge, Mvuu and Kuthengo camps. Visitors to Liwonde can get some of the best river-based elephant, crocodile, hippo and general wildlife viewing in Africa.
