Mozambique

Why Choose Mozambique?

The startlingly beautiful coastline of Mozambique offers not only archetypal palm-lined tropical beaches but also boasts snorkelling, diving and game fishing to rank with the very best in the world!

These sports combined with the bustling port of Maputo, one of Africa's most attractive cities, and the beguiling Inhambane Province makes for a fascinating destination that is as varied and enticing as any in Africa.

Mozambique is fast becoming the bird watcher's destination of choice as there is now an abundance of birdlife which has proliferated over the years. You can expect to see such treasures as Senegal lapwings, Eurasian oystercatchers, brown-headed parrots and Madagascan bee-eaters among many, many others. Kayak through ancient mango swamps, sail in dhows and at the end of your day, dine on the freshest and most delicious seafood while you listen to the soft sounds of the Indian Ocean as it laps the ancient shoreline.
