Unspoiled Beaches and Tropical Islands
With over 2500km of unspoiled beaches, Mozambique is the ideal beach destination. The stunning Mozambique beaches are secluded and the untouched silver sands stretch as far as the eye can see.
Top spots include the beaches near Xai-Xai, Praia do Tofo, Pemba, Barra and the Quirimbas and BazarutoArchipelagos, home to various spectacular islands such as Bengurerra. These are some of the most romantic and secluded beach destinations in the world - ideal for a perfect honeymoon.
The Gorongosa National Park
The Gorongosa National Park is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled national parks in Africa, where visitors experience a true wilderness.
Following years of effort, it has been rehabilitated and is now touted as Africa’s “Lost Eden”. Its magnificent floodplains, savannah and forests are home to elephant, lion, zebra, buffalo and more than 300 species of birds.
The Marine Life
Mozambique boasts some of the best diving and snorkeling sites in the world.
Tofo is arguably one of the greatest places on earth to see mega fauna marine life such as whale sharks, giant manta rays, and hammerhead sharks. The sandy archipelago of Bazaruto is home to over 1200 marine creatures including dugongs, hundreds of species of fish, starfish, and flamingos.
Mozambique is famous for the quality of its fresh seafood.
The Portuguese influence can be experienced in dishes such as Peri-Peri (hot and spicy) Prawns and Peri-Peri Chicken. The Portuguese and Malay influence and wonderfully fresh seafood have combined to offer some of the tastiest seafood dishes in the world. Even the most basic dishes are vibrant and flavorful.
Authentic African Culture
Nowhere is the essence of unfettered African life more clearly visible than in Mozambique’s capital, Maputo.
The Portuguese were lured here by rumors of pearls in the 17th century, when they founded the city, and it quickly turned into a trendy, cosmopolitan, and wealthy destination.
Malawians call it Lake Malawi, Mozambicans call it Lago Niassa.
Some say the Mozambican shoreline is quieter and more rugged. Many others enjoy Mozambique’s Lago Niassa, which is certainly less visited and a lot cheaper. The best way to see it is from a kayak, or at least from a wide sandy beach.
With just over one hour’s direct flight, you can now combine your safari at Kruger National Park in South Africa with lazing on a Mozambican tropical beach in the Indian Ocean.
