The pristine landscape of Niassa Reserve stretches across most of northern Mozambique adjacent to Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve to potentially comprise one Africa’s largest remaining wildernesses.
It’s a truly unique part of the world, and one that Dubai-based businessman Abdulla Aujan first encountered as a child. His father, Sheikh Adel Aujan, took him to Niassa in the hope that he would share his love of Africa. “I was 12 and initially wasn’t so thrilled about having to go, I wanted to play video games and football,” remembers Abdulla. “But when I saw Niassa it was so incredibly beautiful, I quickly appreciated what my father was showing me. It’s somewhere he fell in love with over 20 years ago and I learned a new appreciation for how precious things are and for all that I have.”
