Gorongosa Partners with Asilia Africa

February 6, 2013

Bas Hochstenbach (Asilia Africa) and Greg Carr (Gorongosa Restoration Project) shake hands after signing the deal

There is cause for celebration in Gorongosa National Park as we welcome a new eco-tourism partner! Asilia Africa will open its newest camp, Kubatana Camp, on July 1st in a beautiful, remote location deep within Gorongosa.


Asilia Africa gave us a sneak peek at what the camp will offer:


“Kubatana means ‘co-operation’, ‘hand-in-hand’ and ‘working together’ in the local Sena/Chigorongosa language, and therefore could not be a more fitting name for this exciting new joint venture. The 6 luxurious tents will have en-suite bathrooms and there will be a comfortable mess area for relaxing. The light-weight camp will aspire to leave nothing behind but foot prints and will adhere to Asilia Africa’s high eco- and sustainability credentials. Activities 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. But a safari at Gorongosa will also afford the unique opportunity to be part of the restoration project – be part of a rare species relocation or get involved in a game census. This is sustainable tourism in action.”


We hope that you will plan your next adventure in Gorongosa with Asilia Africa. Stay tuned for more details on Kubatana Camp and the activities they offer. In the meantime, visit the Asilia Africa website for more information on how to book a trip.
