PEMBI WILDLIFE CONSERVANCY
MAKING CONSERVATION HISTORY
Pembi Wildlife Conservancy hosts an astonishing array of eco systems, all in one reserve. Due to its unique topography and location, this area is hardly touched by man.
Local folklore speak of it as the “mountain of no return”. This strange and mystic mountain towards the north has a unique forest at the top and can only be reached by experienced climbers or helicopter. Inspecting the mountain from the air, it is no surprise that early visitors had a difficult time finding their way down this majestic and mysterious mountain.
Accumulating in large numbers and eaten with relish by such animals as Kudu, Impala, Rhino and Elephant, these forests also offer protection and habitation to a number of bird species.
Beautiful stone banks with rivers rushing through creates dramatic scenes. Towards the dry season these cascades slow down to allow weary travellers a quick watery relief from the summer sun. The cascades offer some of the most hauntingly beautiful scenery with greenery and large trees bordering it.
LION HOT SPRINGS
Towards the center of the conservancy there are natural hot springs which have become home to a resident pride of lions.
Typical to areas frequented by elephant, are the dense Mopani forests with their dominating cathedral trees.
With the Angonian highland capturing dome bordering the area in the north, several small and large rivers crisscross Pembi making their way slowly towards the south and east. These rivers are without any pollution, having their origin in the mountains. They provide amply for species like crocodile and hippo who seek out the larger rivers as their home.
JESSE RIVERINE FOREST
This part of the river ecosystem, with its thickly populated Jesse bushwillow, helps to regulate the river flow by absorbing water into its root systems, and providing an important habitat for many species of fauna and flora.
Much of the landscape in Northern Mozambique is dotted by rocky granite outcrops, and this visual aspect of the area is unique to East Africa.
Sandalwood is one of the most sought after and scarce wood types in the world. Chinese loggers have targeted these natural plantations with the utmost commitment over the last few years and Pembi’s escape from this active attempt to eradicate a natural resource is in no small part due to the efforts of the anti-poaching teams.
PRESERVING A PIECE OF AFRICAN HERITAGE
Preserving wildlife means crafting a lasting legacy. Pembi Conservancy boasts many species of game, and our aim is to create a protected, sustainable eco-culture by expanding the game population of the park, most notably by introducing 20 Black Rhino which are currently extinct in Mozambique.
For protected areas to survive in the long run, indigenous population need to value them and derive benefits from their existence. Job creation through large scale agricultural projects, education and support programmes to guide communities towards a healthy balance with wildlife, ensure a sustainable solution to conservation.
PEMBI PUMBZE RESERVE
Pembi Pumbze Reserve will serve as a prime tourist destination, with 30,000 ha designated for high density breeding and educating the public about the importance of conservation. The area will include affordable accommodation, camping sites, recreational activities for families and game viewing.
GREEN HOME SOLUTIONS
The Pembi Green Home project spearheads a movement in conservation architecture that serves as a catalyst for sustainable community empowerment and multi-generational wildlife conservation through private custodianship.
