A former Portuguese colony, Mozambique is famed for the magnificence of its white sand and pristine beaches which edge the Indian Ocean.
A true Robinson Crusoe hideaway, Mozambique holidays can be perfectly combined with a safari; making for an ideal holiday package. Hedonists will simply enjoy soaking up the sun on the sandy beaches, while the more active travellers can choose to snorkel or dive – indeed, head for the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park for some of the best snorkelling and diving.
Mozambique is also the ideal place for big game fishing, while the Quirimbas Archipelago in the north of the country now boasts some of the world’s finest island hideaways.
Maputo is a great mix of European architecture with all the vividness of Africa, thanks to its wide boulevards, colourful markets, pavement cafes and vibrant nightlife. Whereas Pemba is a slightly raffish coastal town, with some excellent cafes, bars and markets.
Mozambique holidays also give you the opportunity to enjoy a delicious lobster meal, freshly caught and cooked to perfection, and Maputo promises not to disappoint seafood lovers.
Ibo Island is also fascinating, conjuring images of Zanzibar’s Stone Town or Kenya’s Lamu. Mozambique holidays aren't complete without taking a luxurious sunset cruise on a Dhow, making for a romantic, breathtaking and unforgettable experience.
Mozambique is the perfect place to retreat after a busy safari or if you are simply looking to get away from it all and take a relaxing break. A must-do experience is a sailing trip on a traditional Dhow around the stunning islands. This gives you the opportunity to go snorkelling in the endless coral reefs, where you stand a good chance of spotting dolphins in their natural habitat.
However, there is so much more to this country than the powder-soft sand and clear blue sea. For a cultural experience, a visit to Maputo is highly recommended; the capital of Mozambique, which has a rich cultural and historical past. A true highlight here is a visit to the fish market, where you can sample some freshly-caught seafood.
