Why choose Mozambique for your next holiday destination?…….. Let me tell you. It’s captivating. It’s intoxicating. It’s bold. It beckons to be explored. The locals are warmly inviting, the food is delicious and the beaches are absolutely subline. There is simply something for everyone! A Mozambique holiday is the perfect excuse to kick off your shoes, take off your watch and gear down to the slow pace of island life.
Its wide mainland beaches are lapped by the warm Indian Ocean but the most appealing destinations lie just offshore: two clusters of postcard-perfect islands dot the blue horizon – the Bazaruto Archipelago in the south and the exclusive private islands of the Quirimbas Archipelago near the Tanzanian border in the far north.
Mozambique is one of Africa’s most historic destinations and a paradise for snorkeling and diving with impressive coral reefs. With more than 2,500 km of white sandy beaches, Mozambique is the ideal secluded beach holiday destination, especially the beautiful tropical islands of Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos, which are spectacular.
Mozambique is full of history. The main port facilities of Maputo, Inhambane and Beira were founded in the 16th century and the island of Mozambique was even earlier. A dynamic environment with an intoxicating mix of African, Portuguese and Arabic influences. The capital, Maputo, has a busy street life and colourful markets. Mozambique is also known for the quality of its fresh seafood. The Portuguese influence is felt in dishes such as Peri-Peri shrimp (spicy and spicy) and Peri-Peri chicken.
Inhambane province is generally considered the gateway to Mozambique’s most popular tourist destination: the Bazaruto Archipelago. If it is true that “the pearl of the Indian Ocean” is only a short dhow ride, Bazaruto is not the only thing to do Inhambane.
The majestic beaches of Barra and Tofo are beautiful seaside destinations. The province is a mangrove tapestry, colonial architecture and plantations of coconut, cashew and mandarin. The deep channels that run off the coast of Mozambique offer some of the best marlin and sailing sport fishing in the world. The extensive and colourful reefs are surrounded by tropical fish; while whale sharks, turtles and dolphins can be seen in the clear, warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

With direct flights from many cities in South Africa, Mozambique is the perfect complement to the beach for your safaris or holidays in this country. It would also be possible to combine Mozambique with other countries in southern Africa, although an air link to Johannesburg is necessary.
Our Mozambique tours & holidays are about more than just lazing on soft sandy beaches. Once one of Africa’s top big game destinations, the country’s wild reserves are recovering rapidly and are becoming a top choice for off-the-beaten-track safaris. In fact, Mozambique’s flagship park – the beautiful and diverse Gorongosa National Park – was recently the subject of an award-winning National Geographic documentary Africa’s Lost Eden and it won’t be long before Mozambique regains its reputation as both a game-viewing and beach holiday destination.
