Malawi is a country that is regarded for its main exports of tobacco and tea. But there is much more to Malawi than their exports. Malawi is also the home of the largest elephant translocation project. This project is located in the Majete National Park and has been very successful in revitalizing the elephant population by way of introducing them into the economy. There's plenty of other African wildlife as well! This includes hippos and a very large variety of birds.
