Being unlike anywhere else in Africa the biodiversity of flora and fauna to be found in the Nyika National Park is fascinating and have great scientific importance. This vast, untouched, beautiful wilderness area is home to eland, (herds of up to 300 in the summer), roan antelope (the highest concentration in Africa), zebra, reedbuck, bushbuck, klipspringer, 3 species of duiker (red, grey and blue), warthog, bushpig and blue monkey.
In the remote areas of the park (only accessible by foot or on horseback) there are elephant, buffalo, kudu, Sharpe's grysbok, baboon and vervet monkey. Predators include serval and side striped jackal and very healthy populations of spotted hyaena and leopard.
The Nyika is a must for any birdwatchers visiting Malawi with 435 species recorded due to the diversity of habitat. Grassland species include Wattled crane, Denham
