About Mozambique

Go diving and snorkelling or deep-sea fishing around the Bazaruto Archipelago, visit colourful markets and interact with the vivacious local people. Sail a dhow through mangrove channels, relax under the shade of the palms in the Quirimbas Archipelago, or sip an espresso at one of Maputo’s bustling sidewalk cafés. Seafood lovers will be in heaven; there is an abundance of freshly caught seafood available almost everywhere.

With a wide variety of tours and trips available, this land has a rich and varied history to be explored. Colonised by Portugal in 1505, Mozambique has a strong colonial heritage and an interesting recent past, including a civil war that waged for 15 years. Since peace was reached in 1992, the warmth of its people and the beauty of its landscapes have brought many visitors to the country and helped it to prosper.

Why Mozambique?

  • Mozambique has some of the most pristine dive sites in the world. The reefs of the Bazaruto Archipelago are home to over 1200 species of marine creatures including the rare Dugong.
  • With over 2500km of un-spoilt beaches Mozambique is the ideal secluded beach destination.
  • Beautiful tropical Islands. The Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos are some of the most romantic and secluded beach destinations in the world – ideal for a honeymoon.
  • There are many great community projects and eco friendly developments that will appeal to the socially conscious and green travellers.
  • Mozambique is also famous for the quality of its fresh seafood. The Portuguese influence is felt in dishes such as Peri-Peri (hot and spicy) Prawns and Peri-Peri Chicken.

Note that January – February is possible cyclone season and we don’t recommend travelling to the islands over this period.
