After years of isolation, travellers are rediscovering Mozambique, with its 2500 kilometres of virgin Indian Ocean coastline, its pristine tropical beaches fringed with coconut palms and endless coral reefs. A Mozambique holiday almost defines the term 'bare-foot luxury' with its small lodges on virtually uninhabited islands. A beach holiday in Mozambique is ideal for honeymooners or as a post-safari destination. The southerly Bazaruto Archipelago has been the main holiday focus in recent times, and righly so. However the more remote Quirimbas islands, in the far north, are growing in popularity, appealing to eco-tourists, divers and adventurous souls in search of unspoilt places. Alternatively new beach lodges south of Matputo, on the Lagoon Coast, just north of the border with South Africa, offer visitors to the Kruger National Park easy access to a boutique beach experience.
Mozambique is also an emerging safari destination. Some of the last true wild areas can be found here and intrepid safari operators are working to make them accessible. These are safaris for ‘Africaphiles’ seeking real wilderness experiences. Ask us about which areas are the most suitable for a safari experience.
