The most spectacular part of Mount Gorongosa is its lush, green rainforest. After a hike from the foothills of the mountain in the hot, African sun, entering the dense, towering forest brings an immediate relief. What you’ll find is a cool emerald-green world of towering trees and vines above and colorful mosses and ferns below.   http://www.gorongosa.org/explore-park/landscapes/mount-gorongosa/rainforest  Thanks to Paul Kerrison for this photo!
