Day 1 - Gorongosa National Park

Welcome to Africa On arrival in Johannesburg International Airport, you will need to clear South African immigrations, collect your luggage and proceed through customs. Please go all the way through to the Arrivals Hall (don't go through to transfers), where you will be met by your Hills of Africa guide.

Your Hillls of Africa Travel guide will help you transfer to your Federal Air flight to Mozambique.

On arrival, your Hills of Africa Travel guide will help you transfer to your shared, light aircraft charter flight to Kubatana Camp in Gorongosa National Park.

Kubatana Camp

At the southern end of the Great Rift Valley lies Gorongosa National Park. Known as the place where Noah left his ark, the flood plains here teem with the largest numbers of oribi and waterbuck in Southern Africa and lions keep a watchful eye on their prey. In the distance the majestic Mount Gorongosa dominates the horizon.

A safari here is a discovery, not just of the classic safari animals but of the small things; species that exist nowhere else on earth, of ecosystems that vary from Afromontane Rainforest to classic African savannah, of the history of a country and of the bright future for wildlife and people alike that is being created by a team of dedicated and passionate people.

Kubatana Camp is a luxurious, seasonal camp with 6 tents. The intimate size of the camp means that it has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and very personal service. The guest tents have been designed to make you feel as one with the bush. All tents have en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and indoor and outdoor bush showers. Each luxury safari tent also has a large verandah with comfy deck chairs for relaxing after game drives. The camp is authentic yet stylish with touches that take you back to Gorongosa's golden era of the 1960s.

No two days at Kubatana Camp can ever be alike. Game drives exploring the park will take you from savannah grasslands, reminiscent of the Masai Mara in Kenya, to the flood plains of Lake Urema, which will remind you of the Okavango Delta. Walks will introduce you to Gorongosa's smaller, though in the case of the endemic pygmy chameleon, no less famous residents. Spend a night out under the stars in our star beds and be lulled to sleep by the noises of the African night.
