About Kuti Wildlife Reserve
Kuti Wildlife Reserve is a community-owned wildlife reserve situated in Salima.
The reserve covers 2,000 hectares, and less than 1.5 hours from Lilongwe and 30 minutes from Senga Bay.
The revenue raised is used for projects such as tree planting, rehabilitation of boreholes, and clinics and seedling production to help the surrounding villages.
The reserve is also the primary destination for rehabilitated animals from the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre that are ready for release into the wild.
Kuti was established in the 1990s after having been decommissioned as a government cattle ranch, and set as a wildlife reserve in 2005.
It has a diverse habitat ranging from brachystegia and miombo woodland through to grasslands, wetlands, and marshes.
