Mozambique

Mozambique provides the quintessential beach experience after any safari in southern Africa. Soft white sands, warm clear waters and pristine reefs abound on the country's iconic Pemba and Bazaruto archipelagos.

Mozambique's coastline stretches more than 2,500 kilometres and the country has stunning, remote beaches and islands, Portuguese colonial architecture, World Heritage sites, colourful local culture and undiscovered wilderness areas. Mozambique borders several countries: Tanzania in the north, South Africa in the south, Zimbabwe in the southwest and Malawi in the northwest.

Now free from past political and economic difficulties, the country’s perseverance is finally being rewarded and the country is being restored at a remarkable pace. Mozambique's picturesque beaches and pristine reefs are some of the loveliest in all of Africa, if not the world. Unspoiled sandy beaches, warm, clean Indian Ocean waters teeming with fish and other marine life, and tropical, sunny days make Mozambique a superb destination before or after one's safari. The Bazaruto Archipelago and Pemba are home to several coastal and island resorts offering activities such as scuba diving, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing and sailing.

Three mainland national parks occur in Mozambique, namely Gorongosa, Zinave and Banhine. Bazaruto National Park is situated offshore is the main attraction for visitors. Gorongosa National Park - which is known as the Serengeti of the South - has been undergoing a massive restoration and wildlife restocking project since 2008 and is is now on every safari connoisseur's bucket list.

DID YOU KNOW?

Lions can eat as much as 25 per cent of their body weight in one sitting, gorging themselves and then going without food for up to five days. Their tongues are covered with tiny backward-curved hooklets that allow them to rasp thin pieces of meat from bones. Lions are sociable and the only cats to live in groups or prides.
