The former land of Gold & Ivory
Mozambique is the land of pristine beaches, ocean adventure combined with a rich & diverse culture.
With 2,500km of Indian Ocean in the south-east of Africa, diving and ocean activities, getaway island adventures, are just some of what people travel here for. Known in times past for its fine gold and ivory, and for having been active in the slave trade, Mozambique is a safe travel destination and despite its regained popularity, this warm-hearted country remains for the most part un-commercialized, and gives an open-armed welcome to those willing to explore its treasures.
In the north is the Cabo Delgado province and the Quirimbas Archipelago. The National Park (Cabo Delgado Biodiversity Project) offers visitors diverse environments to explore. With world class fishing, diving and bird watching this is a remote paradise, perfect for those wanting to combine solitude with an experience of a lifetime.
Travel further south to Ilha de Mozambique and you will be transported back in time. This part of the coastline has been declared a World Heritage Site and is an architect’s dream, with buildings made of coral dating back to the 16th century. The Bazaruto Archipelago is one of the best known beach destinations in Mozambique.
Many may not think of Mozambique as a wildlife destination, however Limpopo National Park is a transfrontier park connected to Kruger National Park of South Africa and Gonarezhou of Zimababwe offering a remote and wilderness safari experience with great wildlife diversity along the Limpopo River, which can for months on end, remain a dry river bed. Gorongosa National Park and Niassa National Reserve are also first class wildlife destinations with recently established good standard accommodation available. These are lesser known destinations, and gems indeed, and certainly ideal destinations depending on what your ‘ideal’ safari scenario looks like, we will help you establish this.
Regular flights from various South African airports to Vilanculos, Maputo and Pemba make Mozambique a convenient and accessible destination.
