Gorongosa National Park has an impressive species list with more and more species being reintroduced on a monthly basis. The Park is home to significant populations of oribi, reedbuck, waterbuck, warthog and sable. Warthogs are more common than the impala. Predators are recovering slowly, with a number of lion prides and a few male coalitions within the Park. Elephant herds and bulls are regularly encountered, with the bulls being particularly relaxed providing great viewing. Recently some large elephant bulls have been relocated from the Kruger National Park.
Birding at Gorongosa is incredible with excellent quality and quantities of special and endemic birds such as the Collared Palm Thrush, the Green Coucal, Narina Trogon and Spotted Creeper. Lake Urema provides a home to a huge number of water birds and one can literally sit for hours watching fish eagles swoop down on prey.
With the best of beautiful beaches, warm ocean waters and African bush at your fingertips, Mozambique may be one of Africa’s best kept safari secrets for family safaris and romantic getaways alike.
