Mozambique offers world-class accommodation, pristine beaches, adventure activities including diving, snorkelling, fishing and diverse culture. You are completely spoiled for choice in terms of both accommodation and surrounds. Benguerra and Bazaruto islands are very exclusive and the entire archipelago boasts fantastic beaches, perfect diving and fishing conditions and amazing bird life.

Encompassing 800 000km, Mozambique is an enormous country with a coastline extending roughly 2 500km along the Indian Ocean in southeast Africa. The country has been known for its fine gold and ivory and for having been active in the slave trade. Today Mozambique is a safe travel destination and despite its regained popularity, this warm-hearted country remains for the most part un-commercialised, 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 piece of paradise perfect for those wanting to combine solitude with an experience of a lifetime.

Travel further south to Ilha De Mozambique (Nampula province) 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.

Maputo, the capital, is in southern Mozambique. Formerly known as Lorenzo Marques this thriving, bustling city never seems to sleep. From markets, promenades and bistros, this is a city worth exploring and enjoying. Just minutes away by boat, is the Catembe Peninsula, with breathtaking views over the city and a delightful boutique hotel. Excursions to the nearby Elephant Park Reserve are also possible.

Quirimbas Archipelago

The Quirimbas Archipelago consists of a string of 32 islands that stretch for one hundred kilometres along the northern Mozambican coastline.
