Mozambique is one of the most interesting up and coming safari destinations and in the next few years we hope that it is going to continue to open up and become more accessible. At the moment there are limited accommodation options but it really is the wildest and most remote region for those that are willing to explore.
Gorongosa National Park
The biggest conservation regeneration project in Africa with a huge amount of private money being invested with the assistance of the government to rejuvenate this once great wildlife destination to its former glory. Before the civil war Gorongosa was a much visited haven for Lion and Elephant but unfortunately during the conflict it suffered at the hands of poachers taking game for both funds and food. The fascinating thing about the project is the way in which it is being approached, with a completely ground up view to building the wildlife stocks.
Because the area is so vast you cannot simply ‘restock’ the park with big game, you must work on everything from the smallest up to the largest to create sustainable populations that will be able to survive, reproduce and grow..
One of the most incredible wilderness areas that we know, this is the sort of place that you go to get lost, to really get away from everything. It is a really great place but it is not for those looking to see high densities of wildlife. There is currently only one camp in operation in this area and it works best when linked up with one of the idyllic islands in the northern Quirrimbas Archipelago.
