Derek Macpherson and African Indaba tell us that there is now some sport hunting going on in Malawi which has been facilitated under a trial agreement renewable on an annual basis since 2010. Crocodile, hippo and wild fowl are the primary trophy animals included on the quota although there are a few plains game species (bushbuck, bushpig and duiker) and hyaena. Anywhere in the country outside of Protected Areas is theoretically open, but for practical reasons the hunting area is confined to the right bank of the Shire and in Elephant Marsh. The objective of this trail programme is to demonstrate to the authorities that responsible hunting can contribute to the wildlife management and tourism industry in Malawi, and provide a sustainable income stream to local communities.
