Kruger National Park – A Must Visit

Elephants

Book a Mozambique holiday package and there’s one activity you absolutely must include on all travel itineraries, no matter how many times you come to this beautiful part of the world – a visit to the Kruger National Park.

This is the largest of its kind to be found in the whole of South Africa, covering an impressive 20,000 sq km and home to some of the most amazing animals to be found anywhere. Keep your cameras at the ready when you’re off on a self-drive safari because you’ll be able to spot leopard, cheetah, hyena, hippo, monkey, buffalo, zebra, baboon… the list is endless and you’re certainly spoiled for choice.

Of course, there are other options available to you if a self-drive safari doesn’t appeal. For some, the idea of setting off on their own can be quite daunting (in which case, we certainly wouldn’t advise you to go on a walking safari!), but you can book a private guided safari or a group safari if you’d rather have an expert on hand to help you navigate your way around safely.

In terms of Mozambique holiday accommodation, you have a lot to choose from if you make your way to the Kruger National Park. You can stay in luxury lodges with truly upmarket facilities or you can really rough it in a tent or a rustic camp. It all depends on your budget and your personal preferences.

You’re sure to want to return to this part of the country time and time again. We look forward to seeing you each and every year! Contact us now.

Unwind in the Peaceful Coastal Town of Vilanculos

Bazaruto

Most people looking for a beach break want to spend some time unwinding with the breeze in their hair and sand at their toes. And this is exactly what you get if you book a Mozambique holiday to the town of Vilanculos.

This picturesque seaside settlement can be found 700km from the capital Maputo in the Inhambane Province on the southern coast of the country, one of the most popular areas among tourists visiting the east African nation.

It’s hardly surprising really, as this region is well known for its majestic white sandy beaches, crystal-clear water, laidback atmosphere and fantastic accommodation options.

As the gateway for the spectacular paradise islands of Bazaruto, you could also spend some peaceful time relaxing on one of the six isles that make up the breathtaking archipelago by taking a short boat trip from the mainland.

Known as the “Pearl of the Indian Ocean”, Bazaruto offers silky-soft sandy beaches, colourful reefs and quiet, isolated shores. It is also a must-visit for diving, fishing and windsurfing, and wakeboarding enthusiasts.  As well as enjoying water sports here, holidaymakers can try their hand at horse riding or dune boarding thanks to the islands’ beautiful sandy landscape.

So, whether you’re looking for palm tree-lined beaches, a beautiful sunny climate, eclectic atmosphere, fantastic water sports, or delicious seafood cuisine, you’ll find it all in the charming town of Vilanculos.
