We all know about the threats facing elephants and their decline in many parks across Africa. But in Gorongosa, elephant numbers are recovering. Years of civil war wiped out much of the park's wildlife, and poaching persisted until recently. However, increased security and investment into the park and the people who live in and around it have brought life back and now the park is thriving again. The story of Gorongosa will be featured in @natgeo magazine next year.
