This is a new luxurious, yet lightweight camp opening up in Mozambique's renowned Gorongosa National Park. In July 2013 guests will be invited to join in on the sustainable tourism initiative whilst exploring this tented camp on foot, by vehicle, or by boat.
Kubatana Camp Highlights
At the Southern end of Africa’s Great Rift Valley lies Gorongosa National Park, an area of unparalleled natural diversity. During the 60s and 70s this park was home to the greatest population of lion in Africa and was renowned for the incredible variety of species. After a destructive civil war in the 80s tore this wildlife sanctuary to the ground, it was a mere shadow of its former self. Due to the dedication of Mozambique's government and a non-profit initiative, Gorongosa has blossomed into the wildlife kingdom it was in its pre-war era. Opening on 1st July 2013, Kubatana Camp will provide visitors to the park with fantastic, eco-friendly tented accommodation in an exclusive operating area on the
bank of the Muscadizi River, shaded by large fever trees.
- Opening 1st July 2013.
- Kubatana means ‘co-operation’, ‘hand-in-hand’ and ‘working together’ in the local Sena/Chigorongosa language.
- Luxurious tented camp, yet light-weight and environmentally friendly.
- Fundamentally involved with the conservation and growth of Gorongosa National Park.
Kubatana Camp Game Viewing and Activities
Africa’s greatest wildlife-restoration story: a 20-year public-private partnership between the Government of Mozambique and the Gorongosa Restoration Project, a US non-profit 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. Whilst Mozambique’s civil conflict took its toll on the wildlife in the following decades, the habitat remained intact. A visit to Gorongosa at Kubatana Camp will afford the unique opportunity to be part of the restoration project – a rare species relocation or get involved in a game census. Recreational activities for guests at the camp will include traditional game drives and walking safaris, as well as, boating on Lake Urema, visiting the rainforest on Mount Gorongosa for hiking and birding and fly camping.
