Mozambique

Bordered by the waters of the warm Indian Ocean along the east coast, Mozambique is a favourite honeymoon destination – and it’s easy to see why! Miles upon miles of soft white sands surround the beautiful coral islands of the archipelagos. Crystal clear turquoise waters lap the shores and offer a tropical playground for some of the world’s best scuba diving and snorkeling, swimming, floating and game fishing.

With hundreds and hundreds of miles of Indian Ocean coastline, Mozambique is Africa’s premier beach destination with two main Archipelagos – Bazaruto in the South and Quirimbas in the North. The Bazaruto Archipelago is a glorious collection of palm-fringed islands, each begging to be explored while the Quirimbas Archipelago is a stretch of 32 stunning coral islands, most of them uninhabited and untouched. Spend a day in the water and then relax with a glass of wine and delicious seafood under the full canopy of the African skies.Mozambique is not all beaches though!

Inhambane is a cultural mix of an old and new settlement town, still retaining Arab-styled architecture from its days as an Arab port for the slave trade. Ibo Island is one of Africa’s oldest towns and is famous for it’s annual festival in June with traditional fishing boat races and performances from the ever-smiling locals.

For those looking to experience the thrill of the African bush, Gorongoza National Park has many African wildlife species including lion, elephant and buffalo. The Niassa Game Reserve is home to some 12 000 elephants, which is one of the highest concentrations in Southern Africa.

Mozambique offers something for everyone both in terms of activities and excursions as well as the range of accommodation on offer. Whether you’re after an authentically rustic Mozambican experience in one of the many beach huts, or a romantic hideaway in a five star eco-friendly resort, Mozambique has it.
