We thought Explore Gorongosa was perfect for old Africa hands who are looking for something different. It's a vast wilderness area with few people, and currently no other camps within the park. While we noticed a small influx of locals on day excursions at weekends, and this added slightly to the traffic, it didn't significantly impact on the wilderness aspect.

Safari activities at Explore Gorongosa include day and night drives, mostly in the public section of Gorongosa National Park. The road network is reasonably extensive and takes you around numerous floodplains grazed by hundreds of plains game during the dry season. The private concession is reserved mostly for walking and with very few roads you can walk for hours and never hear a vehicle. 

The morning activity usually begins at around 6.30am after coffee and biscuits around the campfire. Afternoon activities start at about 4.00pm after a refreshing drink of juice, tea or coffee and a piece of cake. It is also possible to spend a full day exploring the further reaches of the park – such as the lake or Mount Gorongosa itself. 

Although we had expected the game here to be quite scarce, we saw lion on a number of occasions and plenty of plains game. The birdlife is also extremely diverse, with around 412 species identified locally. There was a slight lack in diversity of animals and it certainly doesn't quite compete with some of southern Africa's better know wildlife areas – but with various wildlife reintroduction programmes in hand, this is bound to change over the years.
