Off the beaten track

Niassa National Park

Adventure to one of the last great wildernesses in Africa.

More known for its extraordinary beaches, clusters exceptionally beautiful islands and world-class diving, Mozambique is a picture of pristine wilderness. Often overlooked as a safari destination, Mozambique is regenerating its wildlife parks with Gorongosa and Niassa National Parks being at the forefront of the success stories with populations of wildlife on the rebound after years of civil war. Mozambique is home to the big five and many more and has remarkable amounts of biodiversity. However, a safari to this Eden of Africa is more about the adventure and a wilderness experience rather than the opportunity to check off the big five quickly.

The beautiful vast wilderness of Gorongosa National Park, which was once considered to be one of the best game reserves in Africa, is again considered to be biodiversity ‘hotspot’ offering an off the beaten track safari experience for the more adventurous traveller. In 2002 American philanthropist, Greg Carr pledged forty million dollars of his own fortune to rehabilitate Gorongosa National Park and working with the Mozambican government to restore this park to its former glory.

Niassa National Reserve located in northern Mozambique is one of the last true wilderness areas left undeveloped in Africa. Spanning 42,000 square kilometres, its more than twice the size of South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Niassa is located on the Mozambique-Tanzania border and is being expanded to link the vast, untamed wilderness areas with southern Tanzania – which will make it the largest protected wildlife park on Earth and creating valuable, safe corridors for wildlife to roam freely.

If you are searching for a remote, uncrowded and raw safari experience then look no further than Mozambique. This is Africa at it’s most pristine, where wildlife populations are on the rise with elephants, lions and wild dogs being some of the notable success stories.

The best times to visit Mozambique and go on a safari is during the dry season between the months of April and November.

Of course, it is also possible to combine a safari elsewhere with the pristine beaches of Mozambique.
