Mozambique, or ‘Moz’ to the locals, is one of Southern Africa’s sparkling jewels! A tropical paradise for beach buffs, honeymooners, birders, fishermen, scuba divers and travelers who seek a carefree sojourn on some of the world’s most unimaginably beautiful beaches. An incredible holiday destination in its own right, or a beach add-on to a South African safari…either way, Mozambique brings that special something to any Southern Africa travel itinerary.
Mozambique is also steadily transforming itself into a popular safari holiday haven as the country re-establishes its populations of large mammals. Gorongosa National Park and Niassa Reserve are up-and-coming safari areas, as well as Limpopo National Park bordering South Africa’s Kruger Park. Mozambique’s diverse range of habitats support a variety of wildlife, over 600 bird species and the coastal fringe is a vital breeding ground for 5 different species of turtles. You may even see the shy, endangered dugong foraging for sea grass in the shallow waters surrounding the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos.
Maputo, Mozambique’s capital city, has flourished at a startling rate over the last decade. This attractive metropolis just oozes charisma with its spirited Portuguese history, intriguing architecture dotted with art deco masterpieces, flamboyant arts and music scene, and mouthwatering local prawns. Further up the coast the laid-back towns of Inhambane and Vilanculos are a scuba divers dream with regular sightings of giant manta rays and whale sharks.
