Wild Gorongosa is one for science, conservation and nature enthusiasts
Overall rating

Gorongosa is a park for more experienced safari-goers. The wildlife here is still recovering after being hit hard by Mozambique’s 16-year civil war that ended in 1992 – the elephants are particularly nervous of people. But recovering it is, aided by rewilding efforts: wild dogs were introduced in 2018 and another pack will join them in 2019. The park’s wetlands are home to rich birdlife and an enormous number of crocodiles. Gorongosa is a hub for research (several new species have been discovered in recent years) and it’s a brilliant destination for those interested in science, conservation and nature – based on all the knowledge it’s possible to gather on a visit here and the access to real experts, it’s probably my favourite safari destination to date.
