On the path to recovery
Overall rating

Gorongosa is an exciting destination. Once an amazing wildlife destination, it suffered greatly during the civil war. When we visited, there was quite a buzz around making this park great again. Since then there have been some setbacks with unrest in the area, but hopefully the park is on the path of recovery once again. We managed to see quite a lot of wildlife: elephants drinking at a marsh in the forest and a lone young lion walking casually along the road. Our highlight was a daytrip to Mount Gorongosa, home of some very special birds. We did catch a glimpse of the green-headed oriole, which was easy to find due to its distinctive bubbling call. Before heading back, we enjoyed some time at the impressive Murombodzi waterfall where we had our well-deserved lunch and a swim.
