Holidays in Mozambique
A hidden African treasure
Mozambique maintains a low profile among Africa’s top tourist destinations, but it’s a pleasure to explore as a relaxing extension to your African safari, or as a standalone getaway.
Along the undiscovered, unspoiled coast, white sandy beaches meet the turquoise sea, and the Indian Ocean’s coastal islands provide the setting for some of the world’s best diving and snorkeling – with sea life including dolphins, whales, turtles, and a range of colourful fish and coral.
Comprised of six islands – Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Banque, Santa Carolina and Shell – the Bazaruto Archipelago area offers variety within its idyllic scenery. The Indian Ocean waters that surround the islands have a few rare treasures too, including dugong, sea horses, manta rays and whale sharks.
Gorongosa National Park
Once a thriving haven for African game, Gorongosa National Park is now a wildlife rehabilitation area – which is slowly developing its biodiversity back to the renowned levels of the 1960s. A safari in Gorongosa means taking in beautiful scenery as much as game viewing.
The Indian Ocean and Mozambique Channel offer some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world – with sea life including dolphins, whales, turtles, and a range of colourful fish and coral.
