Did you Know?

The number of animals in Gorongosa decreased by 95% between 1977 and 1992 and is steadily recovering thanks to a 20-year partnership between the Mozambique Government and the Carr Foundation to protect and restore the ecosystems and wildlife and to develop a beneficial ecotourism model for people and planet.  


  • Wildlife – spot lion, elephant, buffalo, wild dog, hippo, crocodile, waterbuck, oribi, wildebeest, warthog, bushpig, civet, grey mongoose, honey badger, yellow baboon, samango monkeys, water monitors, impala, and the sweet, secretive suni and nyala. The rare Mount Gorongosa pygmy chameleon (Rhampholeon gorongosae) is found only in the forests of Mount Gorongosa! 
  • African Wild Dog project – a pack of African Painted Dogs (African Wild Dog) was released into Gorongosa National Park in 2018 in partnership with the Endangered Wildlife Trust, after their absence of more than 25 years and now over 40 wild dogs roam the Park.
  • The Famous Lions of Gorongosa – hundreds of lions existed in Gorongosa in the 60s and 70s which then changed during the war years.  The park now aims to restore its wilderness as a lion stronghold once again – in just 50 years, lions in the wild have declined by 70% in Africa due to encroaching human numbers, loss of habitat, unsustainable trophy hunting, poaching and other conflicts. 
  • Birding Bonanza – find more than 400 bird species in the greater Gorongosa region, with more than 220 residents recorded in the Park – Fish Eagles, Palmnut Vultures, Paradise Flycatchers by the dozen, Pels Fishing Owls and Narina Trogons. The astounding Mount Gorongosa rainforest is home to Green Headed Orioles and is one of only four places to see Swynnerton’s Robin.

Gorongosa’s Ground-breaking Work in Conservation and Community

  • World-class and relevant scientific research – finding the right information needed to guide the conservation of the greater Gorongosa-Marromeu region and the sustainable development of its Buffer Zone into the future. 
  • The Edward O. Wilson Laboratory – a research resource centre in the Park for the ongoing protection of biodiversity and training for conservation students and staff in Mozambique.
  • Wildlife rangers – drawn from the community to form a courageous team “on the frontline”, fighting poachers, illegal logging and other human intrusions on the beautiful wilderness. 
  • Ongoing community work – establishing a better understanding of shared principles and goals, making peace with people who are impacted by wildlife and who are impacting wildlife – in a win-win situation.
  • Community-based natural resource management – harvesting and buying honey from 40 entrepreneurial beekeepers, sourcing vegetables from local growers, and more.
  • Sustainable development projects – the coffee plantations are an innovative agroforestry enterprise to benefit poor people and the environment.
  • Environmental education – the first ever Masters in Conservation Biology in Mozambique and the first ever Msc in the world to take place in a real live national park context.

Extraordinary Ecosystems

  • The savanna plains are dotted with forests of acacia and fever trees.  
  • There are dry forests in sandy areas, as well as wetlands or pans that are filled up in the rainy season and teeming with wildlife and birds. 
  • The plateaus contain both miombo and montane forests, as well as a spectacular rainforest at the bottom of a series of limestone gorges. 
  • Huge and ancient baobab trees and mixed palm forests show the successful restoration of one of Africa’s great biodiversity hotspots.
  • Songue is a water wonderland filled with every imaginable water bird, mammal and reptile. Watch as juvenile fish eagles hone their fishing skills, and storks and herons plucking fish from the muddy shallows. Spoonbill, egrets, jacanas, hamerkops, ducks, geese and pelicans, and more.
