Bazaruto Archipelago National Marine Park
This Bazaruto Archipelago National Marine Park in Mozambique was gazetted as a Mozambique Marine Park in May 1971 although borders of the park were extended in 2001 to cover more islands and parts off the Vilanculos coast- a total of 1430sq km. The Bazaruto Archipelago National Marine Park includes portions of several islands, including Banque, Margaruque, Banguerra, Santa Carolina, and Bazaruto (the largest). Huge dunes, forests, grasslands, inland lakes, and wetlands are among the features of the islands, which have a lush tropical environment.
Banhine National Park
First designated as hunting grounds in June 1969, the Banhine National Park was later elevated to national park status in 1972. Since the park will eventually be a part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, there won’t be any significant formal tourist infrastructure there just yet. The Banhine National Park is a sizable swampy area with savannah grasslands, the Limpomporiver, and enormous baobab trees interspersed throughout.
Gorongosa National Park
This Gorongosa National Park is situated on the foothills of Mount Gorongosa in Gorongosa’s Great Rift Valley (1860m). This 370 square kilometer park was designated as a Gorongosa National Park in July 1960. The Gorongosa Valley, a portion of the adjacent tablelands, and many rivers that flow into it are all included in the park.
Quirimbas National Park
One of the most significant stops on safaris and vacations to Mozambique is the Quirimbas National Park. This park, which has a 7500 sq km land area, was designated as a national park of Mozambique in 2002. It is considered to be the largest marine protected area in Africa and is situated in the Quirimbas Islands, close to the province of Cabo Delgado. Eleven islands of the Quirimbas Archipelago, which extends all the way up to Tanzania, are located within the Park. With a blend of Arabian, Portuguese, and African influences, these tropical, coral islands are of immense cultural and historical significance.
