Gorongosa National Park is not only Mozambique’s flagship national park; it is one of Southern Africa’s most significant wilderness destinations. A mosaic of ecosystems offer the traveller striking views of natural scenery, rare opportunities to observe wildlife in genuinely unspoiled settings and- with over 400 species – one of Southern Africa’s most rewarding birding experiences.
As its wildlife population has risen from the ashes of the civil war in Mozambique, Gorongosa National Park enjoys the status of a favoured filming location for National Geographic documentaries. It was here where the award winning “Africa’s Lost Eden” was filmed in 2009, and “War Elephants”, featuring Joyce Pool interacting with Gorongosa’s elephants premiers this year.
Gorongosa’s habitats includes stunning Fever Tree forests, Ilala Palm forests, Acacia and Miombo woodlands, Riparian and Lake shore, striking floodplains and the rain forest on Mount Gorongosa.
