Majete Wildlife Reserve is a 70,000 hectare tract of pristine bush in the southern region of Malawi, one hour's drive from Blantyre. In 2003 African Parks, in agreement with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife, took over the management of the Reserve.

To date, over 142km of fencing has been completed around Majete and its total length is patrolled on a daily basis. In addition, 250km of road network has been constructed.

The most significant change which has really seen Majete come back to life is the reintroduction of species previously eradicated by poaching. As of March 2012, 2,554 animals have been reintroduced from thirteen species including elephant, black rhino, leopard, buffalo, eland and sable.

It is expected that lion will be introduced in August 2012. This will make Majete one of the only reserves in Malawi where the BIG FIVE can be viewed all year round.
