Mount Mabu: the New Wonder

Just discovered. It's the new wonder. It's in Mozambique. It's Mount Mabu. Saved from development by Mozambique's long civil war. Surrounded by developed land. And still pristine, largely untouched, Mount Mabu is, now, the largest rain forest in Southern Africa. And it boasts an abundant wildlife of phenomenal biodiversity, some of which are new species.

Very few, even in Mozambique - except for the local villagers, have heard of Mount Mabu, one of the few places on Earth that has never been explored or mapped before. It is being described by the National Geographic as a place with a mind-boggling diversity of wildlife and plants. See more pictures of the new wonder here.
