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.


The African elephant is the largest living land mammal. An elephant can weigh up to seven tons and has no natural enemies (although large lion prides occasionally hunt elephants when injured). An elephant drinks up to 160 litres of water per day and possesses such 'manual' dexterity in its trunk tip that it can actually turn the pages of a book with it.
