Our Story

Gorongosa National Park is perhaps Africa’s Greatest Conservation Story. Visit and see why this has been called one of the “Last Wild Places” by National Geographic.

Gorongosa  Coffee

Coffee thrives in Mount Gorongosa’s unique rainforest. Today, Gorongosa’s farmers are planting 200,000 coffee plants per year and 100,000 rainforest trees. Each of our specialty coffee blends serves an impact area in the Park. We directly support educational opportunities for young women, conserve the Park’s wildlife, and restore its rainforest.

our story

Gorongosa National Park (GNP) in Mozambique is perhaps Africa’s greatest wildlife restoration story. In 2008, the Government of Mozambique and the Carr Foundation formed the “Gorongosa Project”, a 20-year Public-Private Partnership for the joint management of the Park and for human development in the communities near the Park. On June 7th 2018, the Government of Mozambique signed an extension of the management agreement of Gorongosa National Park for another 25 years.

Approach

By adopting a 21st Century conservation model of balancing the needs of wildlife and people, we are protecting and saving this beautiful wilderness, returning it to its rightful place as one of Africa’s greatest parks.

We are achieving our mission by working in these four core areas:

Conservation: By protecting Gorongosa’s beautiful animals and landscapes, we ensure future generations have a chance to experience this special place.

Community: By providing educational programs, health care, and agricultural support to families–we improve the well-being of local communities.

Science: By studying how all the parts of Gorongosa’s complex web of life fit together, we can make informed conservation and management decisions.

Sustainable Tourism: By developing sustainable tourism, we create employment for local people and generate sustainable revenue for the Park. Every guest that visits Gorongosa plays a vital role in this amazing conservation effort.
