Mozambique is fast becoming the place to be when looking for that more affordable tropical island holiday. Lapped by the crystal clear warm Indian Ocean with two clusters of perfect islands nearby. The Bazaruto Archipelago in the South and the exclusive private islands of the Quirimbas Archipelago to the far North that are perfect for a romantic honeymoon.
A Mozambique beach holiday is the perfect excuse to kick off your shoes, put your phone down and slow down to the pace of island life. Miles upon miles of soft white sands surround the beautiful coral islands of the archipelagos. On your doorstep are richly coloured coral reefs perfect in crystal clear turquoise waters for snorkelers and for the scuba diving enthusiast looking to explore what the Indian Ocean has to offer.
Don’t forget the Gorongoza National Park for a land based wildlife encounter. The park has many African wildlife species including lion, elephant and buffalo. The Niassa Game Reserve is home to some 12 000 elephants, which is one of the highest concentrations in Southern Africa.
Mozambique offers something for everyone. Activities, excursions and eco-friendly 5 star resorts, Mozambique has it all.
Best Time to Visit Mozambique
The May to November winter season is when to go to Mozambique for cooler temperatures and the least chance of rain. December to April is the wet summer season although it generally rains in brief but heavy downpours after which the sun comes out again. Avoid travelling to Mozambique in January and February as this is the cyclone season where torrential rain is often experienced.
