A Guide to the Best Destinations




With 2500 km of coastline and dozens of the world’s most beautiful tropical islands, Mozambique offers a stunning variety of white sand beaches and azure seas. Combine that with superb seafood, year round warmth and sunshine, and accommodation for all tastes and you’ll understand why visitors keep coming back.

The warm Mozambique current provides a perfect setting for martine activities with world class snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, stand up paddling and other watersports. Sail the islands in sleek modern vessels or experience the magic of island hopping safaris on ancient Arabic dhow craft.





Watch elephants and lions, antelope and zebras in their natural habitat in Gorongosa and Niassa game reserves, or hop across the border to South Africa’s legendary Kruger National Park. Swim with wild dolphins off Ponto do Ouro in the south, or the secluded Ibo island in the north, or watch dugongs and whales at play in the center.

Experience one of Africa’s most interesting and vibrant cultures, uniquely shaped by a thousand years of Arab and 500 years of Portuguese influence. Isla de Mozambique and Ibo Island appear frozen in time, with slave forts, beautiful buildings, and ancient crafts still practiced. Cultural and history tours on remote Ibo island provide insights into a living past that has otherwise disappeared.





The undiscovered Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern coast at Pemba is remote for authentic holidays off the beaten track. Ride horses at sunset on the long beach at Ponto Mamoli, dive with manta rays and whale sharks at Tofo and Barra. Families love the warm lagoons at Bilene.

From tiny private islands with helicopter-only access to long white beaches popular with families and backpackers, Mozambique offers authentic holiday experiences for all tastes and budgets. Whether you’re after romantic seclusion, luxury beach villas, party central, culture and history, or game camps in wild Africa – Mozambique has it all.
