10. Nyika National Park, Malawi

Nyika National Park Nyika National Park is Malawi’s largest national park, with an area of 3200 km sq. The park covers practically the whole of the Nyika Plateau in northern Malawi, about 480 km north of Lilongwe and 60 km north of Rumphi by road. The name, Nyika, means “where the water comes from” as the plateau’s elevation makes it wetter than surrounding areas. The top is frequently in cloud in the rainy season which brings over 200 types of orchid into flower.
