Introducing Kubatana Camp

February 11, 2013  By: Gretchen

Kubatana logoWe are very excited to announce the planned opening of Kubatana Camp in Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park on July 1, 2013.

Gorongosa National Park is perhaps Africa’s greatest wildlife-restoration story: a 20-year public/private partnership between the Government of Mozambique and the Gorongosa Restoration Project, a US nonprofit organization. The 4,067 square kilometer Park is located at the southern end of the Great East African Rift Valley and supports an unparalleled level of species diversity. In the 1960s, Gorongosa supported some of the densest wildlife populations in all of Africa, including the big cats, herbivores and over 500 bird species. While Mozambique’s civil conflict took its toll on the wildlife in the following decades, the habitat remained intact. The ground breaking work and dedication of Gorongosa National Park and the Gorongosa Restoration Project have ensured that Gorongosa is today once again one of Africa’s most exciting wilderness experiences – with even brighter prospects for the future of the park.

Kubatana Mount Gorongosa by Piotr NaskreckiBy adopting a 21st century conservation model based on balancing the needs of wildlife and people, the Government of Mozambique and the Gorongosa Restoration Project are protecting the Park’s rich biodiversity, while aiming to enable tourists to enjoy Gorongosa’s natural beauty. Today, the Park provides employment for many local people and health and education programs have been established in surrounding communities. Now, Kubatana Camp will provide an innovative eco-tourism destination while assisting in formulating and delivering an eco-tourism strategy which will not only contribute to the restoration of the Park but also benefit the local economy and further opportunities for local people.

Kubatana Camp sits on the banks of the Mussicadzi River and offers a wide range of
activities including game-drives, boating safaris, walking safari, hiking Mount Gorongosa,
cultural experiences and birding. The best time to visit is from June to the end of September when the weather is cooler and drier. These months are also known for offering better game viewing along the floodplains.

We are pleased to extend the following special offers until the end of 2013:

1)    4 nights for the price of 3, or

2)    6 nights for the price of 4

Call us today to be among the first to visit this wonderful new camp!

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.
