Mozambique is a country in Southeast Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east and 6 countries sharing the other borders to the north, south and west. This Portuguese speaking nation is blessed with an exquisite coastline along the Indian Ocean that is still pristine and relatively undiscovered. The capital city of Maputo is the hub of business and trade for local and international businessmen.
Located just off the Mozambique mainland is the tropical island paradise of the Bazaruto Archipelago. With multiple aquatic activities as well as village tours, hiking, bird watching or horse riding on offer, there are multiple activities to keep the active happy.
Other popular beach and honeymoon destinations are Vilanculos, Pemba, Inhambane, the Quirimbas islands and Bazaruto and Benguerra islands.
Accommodation on the islands and beach resorts is typically in modern and well-appointed luxury air conditioned suites. Lodge size is kept relatively small providing for a more exclusive and private beach experience. Although not provided in every suite, modern conveniences such as internet and phone can usually be accessed through the main lodge facilities.

Mozambican culture is in large part derived from its history of Swahili, Portuguese and Bantu rule. Cuisine is rich and varied, reflecting outside Arabic and Portuguese influence and traditional roots. Fish and seafood dishes are popular as is ‘peri-peri’ chicken – a hot and aromatic spicy sauce that has become popular throughout southern Africa. Due to its tropical climate, Mozambique is blessed with a bounty of fruits including citrus, bananas, pineapples, coconuts and cashew nuts.
The weather in Mozambique is tropical and pleasantly warm with an average temperature of 28 degrees Celsius throughout the year. The summer months of October to April are hot and humid and the drier winter months of May to September make it a more favorable time to travel.
With daily flights from Johannesburg to Vilanculos, the islands of Benguerra and Bazaruto offer a world class beach destination and an easy addition to any other safari package.
