The safari on offer in Mozambique is superb for the enthusiast, not a destination for a first timer. Gorongosa and Niassa are our top picks. Both offer a wild style of safari that is hard to find in other areas across the continent, consisting of huge tracts of land with very few visitors and only a couple of good safari camps.
The camps are well suited to the solo traveller, with exceptional guides and camp managers focusing on the safari experience, rather than the couple- or honeymoon-oriented luxury you will find elsewhere. We recommend Lugenda Wilderness Camp in Niassa and Explore Gorongosa in Gorongosa National Park – the latter is our favourite due to its ease of access and the fact that it epitomises safari in Mozambique. Also, the single supplement is particularly good value.
