Gorongosa National Park, in Mozambique is proud to announce that it will be the last stop in the final episode of the landmark series Africa, which is currently airing in the United States on the Discovery Channel and the United Kingdom on the BBC.
Africa is a BBC and Discovery channel co-production made by the award-winning documentary team that created the acclaimed 2009 natural history series Life. Drawn from over 2,000 hours of footage gathered from 1,598 days on location and over 553 cameras deployed in the field, the series paints a breathtaking portrait of Africa.
In the final episode of the series, titled Africa: The Future, Gorongosa National Park is featured prominently. Famed naturalist David Attenborough hosts the episode in which acclaimed biologist E.O. Wilson and Gorongosa’s own budding young Mozambican scientist, Tonga Torcida make an appearance from the Park. As Attenborough looks to the past, reflects on how Africa has changed in his lifetime and considers the future, Gorongosa’s story offers a profound and resonating end to the landmark series.
