Gorongosa’s main public camp has a legendary history for offering both great hospitality and incredible game-viewing. During the 1960’s and early 1970’s the Park was highly regarded for its large animal herds, its comfortable, family-friendly camp, and the highest density of lions in Africa! However, during the various political and social upheavals of the past three decades, the public hospitality facilities at Gorongosa were almost completely destroyed.
Now, under the strategic alliance between The Carr Foundation and the Government of Mozambique, the Park can once more boast a comfortable and well-serviced public camp at Chitengo, as well as providing a range of tourism activities from guided game drives to informative talks and displays on the impressive restoration project underway at Gorongosa. There is also a large shaded swimming pool, a top quality restaurant and internet connectivity at Chitengo Camp.
