The Gorongosa National Park (situated in Sofala Province) lies on the South edge of the Great Rift Valley, near the border of Zimbabwe and 80km north-west of Beira. Gorongosa National Park is one of Mozambique’s flagship conservation areas with a remarkable history; before the onset of civil war.
Let the adventure begin en-route to Maputo Elephant Reserve. The Maputo Elephant Reserve is positioned 80km south of Mozambique’s capital, Maputo. The Maputo Elephant Reserve was also greatly affected during the Mozambican civil war. Pre war the reserve was well stocked with large numbers of elephant and rhino, however at the end of the war only 200 elephant and no rhino remained; as with all other Mozambique parks, the Maputo Elephant Reserve is slowly working on replenishing the population of these magnificent creatures.
