This is probably not for everyone, but worth it for those who want a slightly different safari experience. Access is not easy: either over pretty hellish Mozambican roads or via charter plane (Safari Air) from Beira or Chitenga airports. There is only 1 lodging option:...More

The road from Inchope to the Park turn off is indescribably bad-allow around 1.5-2 hours for this 40km stretch unless you are driving something very robust-and you are too. It’s a relief to get off the tar and onto the dirt road leading to the...More

PN Gorongosa, and parks such as Zambia's Luangwa, offer the game viewing experience of Kruger or Serengeti but with a far less sanitised and crowded ambience. Make the effort to get here, and you will have experienced Africa.

During our 4-week African adventure, we spent a week at Gorongosa National Park. This was our second trip to East Africa. We’ve stayed in quite a few lodges in Botswana, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe and we’ve spent about ten weeks on safaris watching and photographing...More

Not to compare with others but at a good start. Game drives are a lot of fun and each one, the morning and the afternoon, have their own attractions.

You'll read in guides that the wildlife in this park is not what it used to be and that may be true, but life is bouncing back and Mozambique and the Carr Foundation are doing an amazing job. They need tourist support. You'll see lots...More

Hi, 4x4 is a good option.. Beacause the outside road is not good for small cars.. Better rent it outside.. And inside the safari ride is different that will be provided by the team there.. There is nothing more to worry... More
