As part of our continuing effort to improve and expand our facilities and accommodations at Chitengo Camp, we are undertaking some construction activities that may, during some daytime hours, interrupt the normal tranquility of some parts of Chitengo. Please bear with us as we work to make Chitengo an even better place from which to base your Gorongosa experience.
First constructed in 1941, Chitengo hosted thousands of visitors from all over the world until 1983, when Mozambique’s civil war shut it down. It was mostly destroyed during the war, but re-opened in 1995. We are now restoring and rebuilding it with many modern conveniences.

Gorongosa is home to an astounding diversity of animals and plants—some of which are found no where else in the world. This rich biodiversity creates a complex world where animals, plants and people interact. From the smallest insects to the largest mammals, each plays an important role in the Gorongosa ecosystem.
Elephants of Gorongosa
The African elephant is the largest living land mammal, growing up to 3 meters tall and weighing 3,000-6,000 kilograms. Elephants play an important role in maintaining biodiversity in Gorongosa National Park during their 60-70 year lifespan.
Gorongosa's Giant Crocs
The Nile crocodile is Africa’s largest crocodile; it can grow up to six meters in length and weigh as much as 1650 kilograms. Some say that Gorongosa National Park boasts the largest Nile crocodiles in the world.
