The Rebirth of an African
Imagine sitting on the shady porch of your safari chalet, sipping a cup of rooibos tea, and then through the branches of an acacia trees, a helicopter shuttling relocated leopards whirs past. That’s the reality of Mozambique’s spectacular success story and one of Africa’s most promising up-and-coming tourism destinations: Gorongosa National Park.
After years of civil war devastation, Gorongosa’s wildlife populations were essentially wiped out. However, in recent years, Gorongosa’s dedicated scientists and conservationists have taken on the mighty challenge of repopulating the park with the species that used to exist there. Ecological restoration has never been so closely tied with the development of a world-class tourism destination. Its spectacular landscapes, charming accommodations, passionate and insightful safari guides, research centers, and anti-poaching animal rehabilitation programs makes Gorongosa one of the most unique game reserves for travelers to visit in Subsaharan Africa.
