Kubatana Camp will be the only private camp in Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park when it opens its doors on 1st July this year.

Currently the only accommodation is in park bungalows at Chitengo, so Tribes Travel recommends Kubatana as providing an excellent low-impact yet rustic luxury base for wildlife lovers from around the world to enjoy the incredible sights of this most diverse reserve.

Tribes Travel's managing director, Amanda Marks, says that staying at Kubatana in Gorongosa offers a unique and exciting African wildlife experience:

"Here in the so-called 'Serengeti of the South' there is a proliferation of different types of antelope such as nyala, sable, reedbuck, and waterbuck, and it is estimated that there are around 300 elephants. Many other species inhabit the grasslands, rainforest and floodplains, and birdlife is extremely diverse. There is even a bird here which is found nowhere else on earth - the green-headed oriole.

In the heyday of the park in the 1960s and 70s this was THE place for lions. There were hundreds! The population of all the wildlife in the park, including lions, fell dramatically during the years of troubles in Mozambique, however it's amazing what time and effort can do, and the park is steadily being rehabilitated. There are between 30-40 lions now in the park, but it's thought that the park could support up to 200, so there is an important Lion Project going on here".

Tribes Travel suggests that by staying at Kubatana Camp guests will be provided with a quality safari to see some of this incredible African Eden whose biodiversity has incalculable importance for the region. Game drives, walking safaris, maybe even boat trips on Lake Urema (awaiting an environmental impact assessment), meeting reseachers and ecologists ... all this is possible during a stay here. All this wild excitement in a unique environment followed by the comfort of a large en-suite tent with hot shower and a comfortable king-sized bed after a delicious evening meal, what safari could be better?

Amanda Marks is the managing director of award-winning specialist tour operator, Tribes Travel. Tribes specialises is organising tailor made holidays in Africa, South America, India & Nepal, with a strong emphasis on sustainable tourism.

Tribes tailor makes safaris to Gorongosa National Park, and a 4-night stay including park fees will cost from around £1430 pp sharing.
