EXPLORE MOZAMBIQUES BEST GUIDED TOURS AND DESTINATIONS
Mozambique is one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in Southern Africa, but yet, it is often overlooked in favor of its more famous neighbors South Africa or Botswana. Looking back at many sad decades of civil war, the country has come out stronger and is slowly but surely gaining a top position amongst Africa’s favorite destinations.
Famous for its whopping coastline of 2300 kilometers, it is mostly known for its white sandy beaches, dream islands and turquoise waters. Forget about the uber-luxe (and often overpriced) tourist hotspots Mauritius or Seychelles – Mozambique is the ultimate Indian Ocean paradise. Here you will find vast stretches of untouched marine wilderness: the country is a pioneer in protecting its shores and breathtaking archipelago. This is where you can look forward to the most beautiful sunsets, vibey evenings with local beats and the freshest seafood. Speaking of local: Mozambique is the perfect place to discover Africa in all its vigor and color. Immerse in the eclectic mix of Bantu, Swahili and Portuguese influences, whether in the capital Maputo or small villages along the coast. But it doesn’t stop there – Mozambique is becoming a premier safari destination with multiple national parks and nature reserves.
Mozambique is the perfect destination for everyone who loves adventure, but also doesn’t mind a bit of barefoot luxury sometimes. The country offers everything from rustic, authentic guesthouses to 5-star beach resorts. Getting around is also fairly easy, whether self-driving, via plane or bus.
One of the absolute highlights of Mozambique is Bazaruto National Park, protecting the five islands by the same name. Look forward to pristine wilderness and complete island isolation. Similar to Bazaruto, the Quirimbas islands are an ocean wonderland. Major nature reserves are the famous Gorongosa National Park – showcasing great conservation and rehabilitation efforts after the civil war – and the multinational Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, connecting Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park, South Africa’s Kruger National Park and Mozambique’s Limpopo National Park.
