Updates and reports from Mozambique!

June 18, 2010  By: Africa Adventure Consultants

We’re excited to be offering our new Mozambique Eco-Adventure in addition to our Mozambique Beach Holiday. Thanks to our associates in Africa, we’re pleased to give the following updates on our favorite lodges and camps in Mozambique.

For new bookings through December 31, 2010 a Rand 1,000 (approximately $135 per person) air credit will be applied to each booking of 5 days or more. This air credit will be

applied to flights within your itinerary! Not sure where to go? You can fly SA Airlink to Pembo (applying your credit) and stay at the Ibo Island Lodge, fly to Beira and stay at Explore Gorongosa or fly to Vilanculos and the Benguerra Lodge (photo right) or Indigo Bay!
Straight from Africa, the latest on Gorongosa National Park and Explore Gorongosa (featured in our Mozambique Eco-Adventure):
Gorongosa National Park – known in the 1960’s as the place where “Noah left his Ark” because of the vast herds of game – was ravaged by the civil war in Mozambique. While the dramatic landscape remained largely untouched, the animal life was all but obliterated. The Carr
Foundation, a U.S. not-for-profit organization, teamed with the Government of Mozambique in January 2008 to protect and restore the ecosystem of Gorongosa National Park and to develop an ecotourism industry to benefit local communities for the next 20 years, and this forms the backnone of a drive to restore the Park to its former glory. Animal relocations from the Kruger National Park, including elephant and lion, have been successful and plains game numbers have increased incrementally. It isn’t the Masai Mara – yet – but it

is a remarkable wilderness area, with 54 different biomes, and ever changing landscapes. The plains recall images of Busanga Plains in Zambia – the Sand Forests northern KwaZulu Natal, while the Gorongosa Mountains and Lake Urema are evocative images in this 400 000 hectare park. Explore Gorongosa is the first – and currently only – concession in this wilderness, offering comfortable tented accommodation with bucket showers and eco-loos, and unparalleled day and night access to activities in the Park. Expect plentiful birdlife, plains game, lion sightings and a sense of being in a remote and exotic part of Africa.
Thanks to our partners in South Africa, for the Mozambique update! Contact us for more information on Gorongosa, Explore Gorongosa or any of our programs in Mozambique!

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
