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.
The Explore Gorongosa experience is hosted from an exclusive seasonal tented bush camp situated in a beautiful private operational area within the Gorongosa National Park.
Each suite has an alfresco 'en tent' bathroom comprising an eco-innovative waterless loo and a fantastic wash-in-the-wild shower designed to give you privacy and a feeling of freedom all at the same time.
Enormous king-size doubles or extra-length twin single beds are available with snug down duvets and cotton linen and towels of highest quality.
One of the main aims in the design of the camp was to have as much of it home-made as possible and being sourced from the region.
The main area of the camp features the eating, chilling and social area of the camp with an open-air library and lounge, as well as a spacious canvas mess tent for relaxing. Dining is normally under the sky with superb home produced food and good wine.
From morning strolls to night drives, sundowners on sandy riverbanks to brunches taken within old ruins, no two days are the same at Gorongosa.
Visits to the local village are balanced with informative introductions to the conservation-biased restoration project within the Park. Game drives reveal areas of the Park that one cannot cover on foot, whilst walking safaris unveil aspects of Gorongosa’s natural world that will truly astound you.
During and just after the wet season, boating, canoeing and mekoro safaris provide a hippo-eye’s view of this waterlogged wonderland, all covered in a carpet of stunning purple and pink water lilies.
Seasonal variations in camp site and type also ensure that you want to return time and time again to experience the entire smorgasbord on offer from Explore Gorongosa’s unique safari experiences.
