The greater Gorongosa region is ecologically unique situated at the southern most end of the Great African Rift Valley; as a result it is a region with high species diversity and environmental features found nowhere else in the sub-continent. The key to continued biodiversity and habitat preservation on the planet is to protect areas of ecological importance, such as the Gorongosa National Park and the surrounding water catchments, such as is found on nearby Mount Gorongosa.

Explore Gorongosa 
 
The Park is nestled in a 4,000-square-kilometer section of the Great African Rift Valley system, Africa's most dramatic 
geological feature; as a result it is a region with high species diversity and environmental features found nowhere else 
in the sub-continent. 
 
The key to continued biodiversity and habitat preservation on the planet is to protect areas of ecological importance, 
such as the Gorongosa National Park and the surrounding water catchments, such as is found on nearby Mount 
Gorongosa. 
 
Explore Gorongosa is an exclusive camp in the heart of the Gorongosa National Park in central Mozambique. The 
national park was once the wildlife gem of Mozambique before it was devastated during the Civil War. However, plans 
to restore the game and the wilderness have been put in place, as Gorongosa looks to reclaim its former glory. 
 
It is essentially a series of migratory camps offering guests either walking or river-based safaris. During the Dry Season 
(1 May - 15 December), guests will walk through the bush with an expert guide before setting up camp in the 
wilderness. Whilst during the Wet Season (15 Feb - 30 April), you can drift down rivers and waterways on canoes, 
taking in exceptional game and bird viewing. 
 
Accommodation will take the form of 4 canvas tents catering for a maximum of 8 guests, so you can enjoy an exclusive 
experience. Each tent is the epitome of luxury with twin singles or a double bed, mosquito nets, a clothes rack, 
suitcase stand, vanity table and stool and side tables - not exactly hard camping! Each tent will have an en-suite 
bathroom with open-air hot bucket shower and toilet and there is a private verandah with customary camp chairs 
where you can kick back during the day. 
The Park has a long history of providing an incredible setting for photographic safaris in Mozambique. Despite over 
two decades of conflict, much of Gorongosa’s infrastructure remains. The Park’s original headquarters in the south - 
Chitengo Camp - is also a public rest camp, comprising 18 comfortable air-conditioned cabanas as well as a shady 
public campsite and Chikalango, Chitengo's new and improved restaurant serving breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. 
There is a swimming pool in the camp - a welcome addition on hot summer's days! - and the camp is currently able to 
host conferences for up to 40 delegates. Currently, Chitengo offers guided game-drives and village.
