African Parks

African Parks is a non-profit conservation organization that takes on the complete responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of national parks in partnership with governments and local communities. African Parks currently manage 19 national parks and protected areas in 11 countries covering over 14.2 million hectares in: Angola, Benin, Central African Republic, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Zambia and Zimbabwe

The organization was founded in 2000 in response to the dramatic decline of protected areas due to poor management and lack of funding. African Parks utilizes a clear business approach to conserving Africa’s wildlife and remaining wild areas, securing vast landscapes and carrying out the necessary activities needed to protect the parks and their wildlife. African Parks maintains a strong focus on economic development and poverty alleviation of surrounding communities to ensure that each park is ecologically, socially, and financially sustainable in the long-term

Niassa Lion

Niassa Lion’s vision has produced a unique protected area where lions and other carnivores can thrive with the full participation and support of the people who live alongside them in the Niassa National Reserve (NNR) in Mozambique.

Niassa Lion’s mission is to conserve lions and other large carnivores (leopards, spotted hyenas, and African wild dogs) in the vast NNR (16,000 ml2; 42,000 km2) in Mozambique. They work in collaboration with the Mozambican government, the Reserve Management Authority and local communities. NNR is vital for global wildlife conservation efforts, particularly for lions and African wild dogs. Lions, in particular, are in crisis throughout Africa.

Gorongosa Coffee

In 2019, Our Gorongosa was established to support sustainable development in Gorongosa National Park. How? 100% of the profits from the premium products go to the Gorongosa Project – the non-profit that runs the Park’s human development and restoration initiatives.

In 2015, the Gorongosa Project partnered with green bean coffee experts and local farmers to plant coffee and native rainforest trees on Mount Gorongosa. Today, more than 600 farmers are planting 200,000 coffee trees per year and 100,000 rainforest trees alongside them!
