Mozambique

Mozambique is located on the southeast coast of Africa. It is bound by Swaziland to the south, South Africa to the southwest, Zimbabwe to the west, Zambia and Malawi to the northwest, Tanzania to the north, and the Indian Ocean to the east.

Mozambique is an excellent tourist destination. Offering a unique historical and cultural heritage, tropical beaches, coral reefs, spectacular landscapes, intriguingly rich architecture and small desolated islands close to the coast, Mozambique is one of the most enticing tourist destinations in Southern African.

Blessed with almost 2,500 kilometers of coastline and countless offshore islands, here, the beaches are covered with soft golden sand and the sparkling blue water which makes it desirable to swim. With an enticing mix of Latino-infused culture and natural, unspoiled beauty, its coastal resorts cater to everyone from campers and beach-bumming backpackers to those after an exclusive slice of paradise.

With some of southern Africa’s best surf breaks and species-rich coral reefs, Mozambique’s beaches will keep the adventure-seeker happy, while traditional dhow sailing boats will easily whisk you away to luxury islands where few feet tread.

Visitors to Mozambique can engage in the following activities: Kayaking, Diving, Snorkelling, Swimming with Dolphins, Sea turtles, Viewing, Fishing Charters, Horse Riding, Massage Treatments, and Walking on Idyllic Beaches.

Because Mozambique is not a mass-tourism destination yet, the beaches are almost deserted, and you can enjoy total privacy.

Best time to travel to Mozambique

Mozambique has a tropical climate with two seasons: wet and dry. The dry season runs from April to December and brings with it sunny days, clear skies and temperatures between 26°C and 32°C. These are the ideal conditions for beach days in the dreamy Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos. With calm waters, it’s also a great time to take advantage of the amazing snorkelling and scuba diving on offer.

Within the dry season, September to November is considered the prime time for game viewing in Mozambique’s national parks. As the bush thins out and the wildlife begin to congregate around the rivers and remaining waterholes, you can expect some incredible close-up sightings. Migrating humpback and southern right whales can also be spotted off the coast.

The rainy season kicks in January and continues on until March, but the first two months are cyclone time particularly in southern Mozambique and there’s every chance of a great deal of torrential rain – we will suggest avoiding the Bazaruto Archipelago at this time. However, by April the rains will have let up revealing lush landscapes and clear, sunny days.
