Directions to Banhine National Park
Established in 1973, Bahnine National Park is especially known for its giraffe and ostrich populations. The park was created with the express purpose of conserving those populations. Now, it is a sprawling area of arid land, with great plant and animal diversity. Bahnine has many pans, attracting a wide variety of bird life including the white faced duck, Egyptian and spur-winged goose, African Pygmy Goose, and African Jacana. There are also a variety of hornbills, guinea fowl, hoopoes, tinker birds, and, of course, the ostriches.
Bahnine is a great place to for game drives, but you do need a 4x4. There are a variety of animals in the park, including wildebeest, hartebeest, sable, cape buffalo, zebra, elephants, and more! Explore this beautiful park with friends and family and enjoy natures’ finest displays.
Bahnine National Park also runs an anti-poaching project in an effort to protect the animals, which were nearly eradicated during Mozambique’s civil war and due to commercial poaching.
