Stronghold of wild dogs and lions in Mozambique
Niassa National Reserve

Niassa National Reserve is located in northern Mozambique, with the Ruvuma River bordering Tanzania at its northern boundary. It is recognised as Mozambique's largest and most important protected area, covering more than 42,000 square kilometres or twice the size of South Africa's Kruger National Park. The area plays a critical role in wildlife conservation in Africa, especially for keystone species such as lion, wild dog and elephant.
