Why choose Mozambique?

The startlingly beautiful coastline of Mozambique offers the archetypal palm-lined tropical beaches.It 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 bird life which has proliferated over the years. You can expect to see such treasures as Senegal lapwings, Eurasian oyster catchers, brown-headed parrots and Madagascan bee-eaters among 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.

if you are looking for a Bush & Beach holiday, Northern Mozambique combines well with a safari in Tanzania or Kenya and Southern Mozambique combines well with a safari in South Africa.

Places to visit

Bazaruto Archipelago

This chain of beautiful islands is home to abundant marine wildlife and coral reefs. A wide diversity of wildlife inhabits the area, which is a striking fusion of freshwater lakes, woodlands and open grasslands. The blues of sea and sky merge with green foliage – brought to life by the abundance of brightly coloured migratory birds. Crocodiles, whales, dolphins and the endangered dugong (sea cow) occupy the waters and the deep seas are populated by sailfish, barracuda and marlin. Bazaruto Archipelago boasts superb fishing, and world-class diving off its numerous reefs - the most famous being the Two Mile Reef.

Niassa Reserve

One of the largest reserves in Africa supporting a wide range of game, both big and small.

Gorongosa National Park

Located in the southern end of the African Rift Valley, Gorongosa National Park covers a widespread area of 3770 square kilometres. The park hosts a variety of ecosystems because of the seasonal flooding of the river, the limestone quarries, Mount Gorongosa and its waterfalls, rainforests and miombo woodlands.

Ponta Mamoli

Situated on Mozambique’s southeast coast, Ponta Mamoli is surrounded by natural beauty in a cool, sheltered bay.


A perfect blend of cultural sightseeing with quiet white beaches and clear waters.

Quirimbas Archipelago

Located in the far north of Mozambique, this archipelago is made up of 32 coral islands. It is home to an abundance of wildlife including a large variety of reef fish, green and hawksbill turtles and humpback whales and in turn offers an exciting site for divers.

When to visit Mozambique

Mozambique has a wonderful tropical climate that sees relatively little temperature variation throughout the year. The rainy season is from November to April and the temperatures can get very hot and humid, particularly between December and February. A few spells of rain occur during the months of April to May and rain is very unusual between June and November. Between June and October, it would be hard to improve on conditions along the country’s seemingly endless coastline.

14 Day Honeymoon | South Africa & Mozambique

Outposts Travel Africa arranged a bush & beach honeymoon for a wonderfully adventurous American couple. We organised a 2 week itinerary that combined Cape Town, the Winelands & Phinda in South Africa with 4 days at the barefoot luxury White Pearl Resort, a 5 star beach retreat in southern Mozambique.

“The honeymoon was great and we owe you 1000 thanks for helping plan the whole thing!”

“It was so much fun. Ever more fun coming back to NYC and getting to re-tell the stories to everyone. White Pearl was incredible. The room we had was amazing. Seems like this is the nicest resort for miles and miles. The helicopter to Maputo is 100x better/faster/more fun than taking the 4×4. Thank you again so much for everything and I will 100% refer folks to you in the future! I have a lot of folks asking about how we pulled off such a great trip.”
