Dangers & Annoyances

During dry periods, sectors of the park are burnt to prevent larger fires later in the season. Before setting off for drives, inquire at the park headquarters to find out about areas that are being burnt. It can get surprisingly cold on the Nyika Plateau, especially at night from June to August, when frost is not uncommon. Log fires are provided in the chalets and rooms, but bring a warm sleeping bag if you’re camping.
