Gorongosa National Park is considered one of the best natural parks in the world.
Wanted by travellers from all continents for moments of adventure and leisure in a highly exuberant environmental setting. Within few years, Gorongosa has reborn from the ashes and is well on its way to becoming again, “where Noah left his Ark".
By adopting a conservation model of the 21st century, balancing the needs of wildlife and people, Gorongosa National Park is helping to protect and preserve wildlife, returning it to its rightful place, establishing itself as one of Africa's largest parks.
Today, scientists regard Gorongosa as one of the most unique national parks on Earth, a biodiversity paradigm and a place that must be preserved for future generations.
Each Gorongosa visitor plays a vital role in this fantastic nature conservation effort.
Among the park's main attractions are the casa dos leões , the miradouro dos hipopótamos, the Chiringoma limestone cliffs, the Urema lake, the Northwestern floodplains, the Murombozi River waterfalls, in the Gorongosa mountain, tours to the Vinho community and the sunset in Bué Maria.
The Park is closed between mid-December and the end of March. After reopening some of the tracks may remain closed until they are safe for safaris. Revenues from all visits to the Park contribute to local job creation, building schools and supporting education, health and training programs.
