Bazaruto Archipelago

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. Endless deserted beaches with sugary white sands and turquoise waters is what you can expect from your beach holiday here.

Other popular beach and honeymoon destinations are Vilanculos, Pemba, Inhambane, the Quirimbas islands and Bazaruto and Benguerra islands.

Culture & Cuisine

Explorations Africa

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.
