  • It lies in the northern part of Malawi with inselbergs
    thrusting even higher than its initial heights between 1500
    and 1800m according to travel Malawi, under the ministry
    of tourism.
    The plateau is separated by the most significant inner
    northern water body; South Rukuru River as it empties its
    waters into lake Malawi with another plateau to its north
    west nyika.
    The Viphya pine plantations are said to have been the
    largest in Africa, but though facing dissertation the
    protected part of the plateau still gives that soothing, down
    to earth experience as one walks between the forest.
    Patches of indigenous forest survive between, arching rows
    of pines and the original open heartland in the east of the
    plateau, making it a virgin area to explore on foot, or
    mountain bike, even by four wheel drive on remote tracks.
    Nevertheless the well trained trackers can lead to heights of
    tranquility of why Malawi is nicknamed the heart of Africa.
    For bird watchers, Malawi has some in store as is at the
    interface between east and southern African bird
    distributions, and many unusual birds are easy to spot here
    at Viphya.
    Contrast the serene forest and the exhilaration of physical
    adventure by combining a birding safari with a mountain
    bike trail down the Great Rift escarpment on the re-opened
    track to beautiful Chintheche on the Lakeshore.
  • And with the warm welcoming people with mixed
    traditional dances like Vimbuza and malipenga, Viphya is a
    place to reminisce of true man.
