The untouched ecosystem
The Mozambiquan region of Mt Mabu is so remote that scientists only discovered it when they noticed a blank spot on Google Earth in 2005. When they finally trudged into this mountainous rainforest, three years later, they discovered a whole ecosystem untouched by man, including new species of snakes, butterflies and a chameleon. Now scientists are wishing they could scrub it off the map again to keep the treasure trove safe from local loggers.
Getting close: There's no way to get close to Mabu, but Overland Africa's 14-day Discover Mozambique tour will give you a feel for the country's unspoiled wild places; rates on request
