The park was established in the late 1990s by the members of the Wildlife Producers and Hunters Association of Malawi (WPHAM), after acquiring a cattle ranch which once belonged to the government of Malawi. The group started to work on bringing in wildlife and creating places for the visitors to stay. Here WPHAM works on the rehabilitation of wildlife populations, as well as educating communities on the proper use of natural resources.Their future plan is to sell surplus animals so as to achieve self-sustainability and to support development projects in the local communities, such as the maintainance of boreholes, orphan care and micro-projects for sustainable income generation and education about the responsible use of natural resources.
Kuti Community Wildlife Park is located on 3000 hectares of land land which was once a cattle ranch owned by the government. The park has a beautiful scenery of woodland, grassland and wetland at the centre of empty farmland, and it is a habitat for many animals.
