The Magic Of Mozambique: A Must Do Holiday Destination - Exploring Our Globe

Icy cold 2M (pronounced doish-em) beers, white sandy beaches, spectacular remoteness, turquoise waters, dreamy food, friendly locals, R & Rs (local Tipo Tinto rum and raspberry soda), cultural richness, endless activities and a no shoes feel sums it up pretty well- let’s look a little further.

Adventure Awaits

With an abundance of reefs and the clearest water, snorkeling and scuba diving are a must. Enjoy the awesome array of epic marine life like manta rays, whale sharks and humpback whales. Inhambane and Tofo are highly recommended for this. Surfing in Tofo has to be done. Its worth packing a board if you can for some class swell all year round almost all along the country's coast.

Have some fun sailing too or dive into any water sport you can get your hands on. Mozam' is famed for deep sea fishing with an abundance of diverse species. And, the Mozambicans know how to cook your catch to perfection! Recommended fishing spots are Benguerra Island, Quirimbas Archipelago and Pemba.

Something a little different: enjoy an inland safari in Gorongosa National Park in the South of the East African Rift Valley to see all sorts! The elephant and leopard among many wild animals are waiting. What about swimming with whale sharks on the coast off Bazaruto? In Mozambique the ocean and bush meet. It promises a diverse adventure, that may tick many a bucket list box.

Remote Islands, Wild Beauty And An Abundance Of Beaches

With many private islands to enjoy the above activities on, visit Vamizi and Medjumbe. Enjoy the coast of Ponta Malongane too, known for huge endless beaches and vibey bars.

Mozambique's beauty should not be overlooked. It may not strike you as one of Africa’s big names like Kenya, South Africa or Zanzibar but with almost 2500 kilometers of magical coastline it should be right up there.

Cultural Diversity, Friendly Locals and Safety

Culturally diverse, with a large Portugese influence due to their history, it sure is an interesting place. Enjoy something a little different such as Maputo’s jazz and reggae clubs to get a bit of a feel for it all. Mozambique may be a little wild and chaotic but it is still safe and we couldn’t recommend a holiday here more. Not only this, the locals are so friendly and welcoming. Remember 'obrigado' means thank you, if that's all that sticks with you!

Food Not To Miss

We hope your appetite is ready for all that Mozam' has to offer. Famed for their peri-peri chicken, you have to give it a try! With fresh seafood in abundance, really tuck in and enjoy at the most reasonable prices around. Found in any Mozambican market, paõ (pronounced pow) are Portuguese white bread rolls baked in wood-fired ovens in villages perfect warm in the morning for your breakfast. Enjoy the bounty of tropical fresh fruit available and lastly, definitely don't pass up an opportunity to buy a bag of fresh cashews hanging on the side of almost any road.
