The Gorongosa National Park is in the southern end of the African Rift Valley which covers a widespread area of 3770 square kilometres. This park lies in the heart of Mozambique.
The park hosts several types of ecosystems including grasslands, savannah, miombo, montane forests, rainforests, and dry forest on sands. The park has an exciting history and compelling stories. In the early years of it was just an attraction where people used to survey by aerial vehicles. It has seen massive destruction in the beginning, but today the park is in the state of a planned recovery. The animal populations are on the rise including lions, buffalos, wildebeest, zebra, waterbuck, impala, hippos, sable and elands, as well as over 500 species of birds some of which are endemic to the park.
