Mozambique20 July 2014
Mozambique is one of Africa’s up-and-coming hot-spots, with stunning beaches, excellent diving and magical offshore islands. Spectacular snorkeling around the Bazaruto Archipelago, sail on a dhow through mangrove channels or laze under the palm trees in the Quirimbas Archipelago, take an off-beat safari to the wilds of Gorongosa National Park, wander along cobbled streets past stately colonial-era buildings on Ilha de Mozambique, sip a café espresso at one of Maputo’s lively sidewalk cafés (or maybe a caipirinha at one of its jazz bars), watch the silversmiths at work on Ibo Island or dance to the country’s trademark marrabenta music.
The best time of visit the beautiful coastline and islands of Mozambique are in the dry season June to October – perfect tropical weather, clear skies, plenty of sun and almost no rain.
Perfect beach destination combined with safari in South Africa, Botswana or Tanzania.
