It was once known as the place where Noah left his Ark : 1,500 square miles of lush floodplains in central Mozambique, packed with wild animals. But 15 years of civil war has taken a heavy toll and many species have been almost completely wiped out.
Journey with National Geographic to Mozambique s Gorongosa National Park and discover what is being done to bring this African oasis back to its former glory including perhaps the most ambitious restoration effort ever attempted, with elephants, hippos and scores of zebra, wildebeest, impala and buffalo being relocated into the park.

Filming (and its transfer to Blu-Ray) is simply amazing. The video approaches what we see in the BBC's "Planet Earth," but is targeted to specific life in the Gorongosa Park, of course. The close ups of huge eagles, heron, and storks, coming to fish in the lake from above, is a true videographic feat, probably filmed at some super high speed frame rate in order to see this level of detail at such slow speed (near stop motion at points, reminding us a little of the other acclaimed video "Winged Migration.") There is also some excellent underwater photography, as well. Colors are rich and saturated, and there are many arial shots of the park at different points so you can see the beauty of the locale and get a visual idea of its geographic layout. Gorgeous.
An easy recommendation to anyone wishing to learn a little about a major African park, those interested in animal repopulation methods, and those interested in how ecosystems can be damaged, this video by National Geographic should be on their short list.
