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. Small lodges on virtually uninhabited islands make Mozambique the ideal honeymoon or post-safari beach destination.
Mozambique Beach Holidays
The southerly tropical 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. New beach lodges south of Matputo, on the Lagoon Coast, just north of the border with South Africa, offer visitors an easy access to a boutique beach experience.
Safaris holidays in Mozambique
Mozambique is now emerging as a rewarding safari destination. Some of the last true wild areas can be found here, and intrepid safari operators are making them accessible. These are safaris for ‘Africaphiles’ seeking real wilderness experiences.
With the successful, large-scale restoration of Mozambiques’s Gorongosa National Park, it’s easy to combine a safari with a beach holiday. The 4,000 km2 reserve’s high species diversity is thanks to the wide variety of habitats found in the area, from open grassland to montane rainforest and limestone gorges.
