“Gorongosa is such a wonderful hotspot of biodiversity that it leaves you speechless at times. WE have to hope (and believe) that one day it will become again a prime game-viewing destination in a classical term. But when that day will come, we will not forget and overlook those things that render Gorongosa such a special place already: from the beautiful birdlife or the diminutive red duiker hiding in the sand forest, to the majestic sable herds roaming the plains and the elephants that are slowly getting acquainted to our presence again. Hopefully Gorongosa will also conserve an untrammelled wilderness feel, so difficult to find these days.” - Paolo Mapelli (Italy)
