Partners and Donors
We have decided to close down tourism in Gorongosa National Park until further notice. We want to play our part in reducing movement and transmission of this disease that has the potential to profoundly affect the communities surrounding the Park.
The protection and conservation of Gorongosa National Park and its surrounding communities would not be possible without the support and generosity of our partners. We are grateful for their commitment to our mission and to the future success of Gorongosa National Park. Here is a list of many of these partners:
Government of Mozambique and The Gorongosa Restoration Project
The management and conservation of Gorongosa National Park is a joint effort between the Government of Mozambique and The Gorongosa Restoration Project, a US-based non-profit. They have signed a 20-year agreement to co-manage the Park: to protect the ecosystem, to assist local communities with their socio-economic development, and to create a sustainable tourism industry.

A Park for Peace
On 1 August, 2019 a historic ceremony was held in Gorongosa to celebrate the Cessation of Hostilities Accord between the leaders of the Government of Mozambique and the opposition Renamo Party. The accord established Gorongosa National Park (GNP) as a ‘Park for Peace’, delivering human development to the communities that share the greater landscape.
