Mozambique stretches 2,500km along the east coast of Africa. With this vast sweep of largely unspoilt Indian Ocean coastline, Mozambique has become a sought-after destination. Here the tropical islands of the southern Bazaruto Archipelago and the coral islands of the northern Quirimbas Archipelago offer white beaches and fabulous diving opportunities.
With an enviable Indian Ocean coastline and stunning, remote lodges, Mozambique has become the hot African beach destination. Characterised by laid-back African charm, Portuguese influence, white sandy beaches and low-key yet beautifully styled boutique resorts, this southern African paradise is perfect for a bit of barefoot luxury. Five unspoilt and undeveloped tropical islands make up the Bazaruto Archipelago in the south, hemmed with idyllic beaches. The Quirimbas, on the other hand, lie to the north and are an archipelago of 32 coral islands with spectacular reefs and marine life. Its coastal location means that Mozambique also has fantastic seafood. In the centre of the country, Gorongosa National Park is undergoing a large scale rehabilitation project and is sure to regain its place as one of the continents most celebrated wildlife reserves.
The exquisite coastline of Mozambique offers the chance to experience deserted golden sand beaches, sparkling turquoise waters rich in coral and marine life, as well as clusters of castaway islands. For intrepid explorers the largely undeveloped interior provides the setting for a real off-the-beaten-track adventure, but for stunning tropical beaches, marine life, exciting snorkelling and diving, head to the coast. Easily accessible from Zambia, Botswana, Tanzania and Kruger National Park, combine a traditional safari with the stunning Mozambique beaches for a memorable holiday.
