I stayed at Explore Gorongosa for 3 nights and was really impressed at the sheer beauty of the area and at how eco-friendly the camp is. These guys really understand that to have a great bush experience does not mean gold taps and huge cement buildings. Not only did I have a great time but I was always aware that my holiday had a very low environmental footprint. That made me feel good. Don't get me wrong - I had all the creature comforts to make me feel pampered and special - but everything was low key and 'off the grid'. The birding in the area was superb and game drives productive. It also felt good knowing that this is one of Africa's good-news stories - an area previously poached and now making a strong comeback. Overall this holiday made me feel good about myself.
