What are the Best Mozambique holiday Attractions?
Mozambique is all about relaxing in a beautiful, unspoilt coastal paradise.
Offering some of the best Mozambique beaches, the Bazaruto Island Archipelago comprises a cluster of five tropical islands featuring exceptional natural beauty and top-class accommodation. From the powdery, white Mozambique beaches to the incredible coral reefs and varied marine life, this Mozambique attraction is ideal for romantic and family holidays. Generally, clients visiting South Africa will include the Bazaruto Islands in their itinerary, as there are regular flights between Johannesburg and Kruger National Park and Vilanculos (the gateway to the islands).
Another slice of tropical paradise is located off the coast of northern Mozambique, the Quirimbas Island Archipelago. This is slightly more remote and rugged but offers pristine surroundings. While most of the islands are uninhabited, the more popular islands offer luxurious accommodation and a range of fun activities to choose from. This is more frequently accessed from Dar es Salaam in combination with an east African safari holiday.
Spanning the tail end of the Great Rift Valley and the surrounding plateau areas, Gorongosa National Park offers a rugged wilderness experience that combines really well with a stay on one of the Mozambique beaches. The park offers a variety of ecosystems, and a resulting diversity of species of fauna and flora. This is very underdeveloped in comparison to other safari destinations and accommodation can be basic.
Mozambique’s bustling capital city, Maputo, is the optional stop-over before you make your way to the Mozambique beaches. Maputo offers an eclectic mix of cultures, a fascinating history, bustling and colourful markets, and a variety of bars and restaurants. Inhaca is a small island, just 40 km off the coast of Maputo and a popular choice for divers and snorkelers.
