About Nyala Park

When SUCOMA (now Illovo Sugar Limited) became aware of the fact that the number of nyala was declining dramatically in Lengwe National Park, they secured the primary forest within the Nchalo Sugar Estate owned by Illovo Sugar Limited and brought a small breeding group of nyala from Lengwe to the site.

Nyala bred and wildlife such as wildebeest, oribi, impala and giraffe were introduced.

The height of the nyala, which appears curiously low under the tall canopy of the fever-tree, is one of the most remarkable scenic pleasures of Nyala Park.

Nyala Park is open to the public and an entrance fee is required. It is close to Lengwe National Park and should be visited in combination with it.
