Wildlife and conservation – Gorongosa

In Gorongosa a large faunal diversity matches landscape variety and the multiplicity of ecosystems, habitats and ecotones produced by the juxtaposition and overlap of different substrates as elucidated in the preceding chapters. The greatest abundance and diversity of larger mammals is concentrated in the Rift Valley, where buffalo are numerically dominant (now c 15000). The largest species spectrum is contributed by neotragids (5) followed by 3 each of cephalophids, tragelaphids and alcephalids (with tsessebe recently extinct from the region) (Table 9.1). A total of 27 ungulates (2 recently extinct locally) occur in the system, with 9 larger carnivores (Fig 9.1).
