A Major Biodiversity Hotspot
Gorongosa National Park

Gorongosa National Park was once home to some of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, providing a safari experience rivalling the Serengeti and Kruger national parks in the 1960s and 1970s. In 2008, The Carr Foundation, a U.S. NGO signed a 20-year agreement with the Government of Mozambique to protect and restore Gorongosa. The park's elephant, lion and general mammal and bird populations have slowly recovered and now a Gorongosa safari offers experienced Africa visitors the chance to be part of one of Africa’s greatest wildlife restoration stories – meet the ecologists, researchers and scientists behind this inspirational conservation project.
