Mozambique has a never-ending eastern coastline and along this sit a number of archipelagos which epitomise the Indian Ocean ideal of white sand beaches and glistening turquoise seas. The safari scene is not yet developed, but a beach stay here can be an excellent extension from a safari from neighbouring countries; South Africa and Tanzania in particular. There is no doubt Mozambique has some of Africa’s finest beaches. It is a truly stunning destination.
Year-round destination, except southern Mozambique which should be avoided in January/February/March due to the cyclone season
Via Johannesburg to Vilanculos or via Dar es Salaam to Pemba.
The Bazaruto Archipelago is truly idyllic. The sand is white and powdery, whilst the lodges are luxurious and tasteful.
In the days of Portuguese colonial rule, Gorongosa was thought to be one of the very best wildlife parks in Africa. Today it is up and coming as a fantastic, off the beaten track safari destination.
