5. Quirimbas Archipelago National Park, Mozambique
Established in June 2002, Quirimbas Archipelago National Park stretches for 110 kilometers along the northeastern coast of Mozambique and carries 11 of the southernmost Quirimbas islands. The park has a wide range of unique ecosystems, including a coastal forest, mangroves, and coral reefs. The area was completely isolated for decades during the infamous Mozambican Civil War and still retains its natural habitat. On land, there is a sparse population of wildlife, including leopards, lions, elephants, and wild dogs. There is also a wide range of marine life, such as sea turtles, dolphins, and many species of fish.
