The Shire River is the largest river in Malawi. A 17-mile section of the palm-tree-lined waterway runs through the heart of Liwonde National Park. At dusk, the river becomes a gathering place for animals in the park. The river looks peaceful, but it has the dubious distinction of being one of the most crocodile infested bodies of water in Africa.
