Explorers Camp Gorongosa

The Explore Gorongosa experience is hosted from an exclusive, seasonal, tented bush camp situated in a private concession within the Gorongosa National Park. Explore one of the most exciting new safari destinations in Africa through their day and night game drives and walking safaris.




A friendly and conscientious approach to the authentic African safari experience focusing on what guests feel, see, learn and do. The rustic camp is slightly quirky but there is a great atmosphere, and the park restoration story is inspiring with game viewing numbers on the rise, as the ambitious Gorongosa restoration project continues.

Need to Know

“This park provides one of the most fascinating canvases for walking safaris that I have ever visited. The range and beauty of the bush and wildlife, matched with the vision of the Restoration Project, will make Gorongosa a top destination on the African safari scene sooner than you think” Spike Williamson, Private Guide (Zimbabwe)


Driving, walking, fly camping, hiking. Day and night game drives in open vehicles, and bush walks with experienced regional guides. The extraordinary ecological diversity of the national park, from open plains to dense palm forest, provides a wealth of wildlife, including the rare green-headed oriole and bushy-tailed mongoose.
