REDISCOVERING

Mozambique

Mozambique truly is one of those undiscovered gems of the world.  After decades of civil war, Mozambique is emerging as a true travellers destination and we mean that in a good way.  A former Portuguese colony, Mozambique still retains many fine examples of colonial architecture and its spicy cuisine reflects its history.  The Capital city of Maputo is located in the south of the Country.  Currently the only direct non-stop services from Europe are from Lisbon. 

Bazaruto Archipelago

The stunning Bazaruto Archipelago boasts some of the most unspoilt beaches, clearest waters and richest marine populations in the whole of Mozambique and is known as the "Pearl of the Indian Ocean".  The Archipelago consists of five  islands—Bazaruto (the largest), Benguerra (a hotspot for birdwatchers), Santa Carolina (a rock island), Magaruque, and Banque—offering you everything from action-packed adventure to quiet beach retreats.

The natural splendour is topped off by a three-kilometre long coral reef and dive sites that are up to 30-metres deep.  From about early October to late January, the coastline is filled with fishing enthusiasts trying to catch the likes of bonefish, marlin, and sailfish.

Declared a National Park in 1971, Bazaruto is home to a rich and diverse population of creatures—both in the water and on dry land. The waters surrounding the island are teeming with dolphins, turtles, whales, sharks, manta rays, as well as Africa's largest population of the endangered dugong. Moving inland on the islands you’ll find freshwater lakes populated by suni antelope, crocodile, and flamingos.

The Quirimbas Archipelago

One of the most sought-after seaside hideouts on the continent. If you refer to venture even further off Mozambique’s not-yet-beaten track, this is the place for you. In Quirimbas, you’ll be met by the unspoilt beauty of powder-white beaches, palm trees, and turquoise waters, without the swarms of tourists.

The Archipelago consists of over 30 coral reef islands, strung together by sand bars and mangrove swamps and stretching some 400 kilometres from Pemba to the Tanzanian border. Each one of these islands has a unique story to tell: Ibo boasts centuries-old architecture, Matemo is the largest, Vamizi is the most remote, tiny Medjumbe is an ideal honeymoon destination, and Azura Quilalea is the most exclusive and eco-chic of the batch.

You can hop from one island to the next on a dhow cruise or, if you’re feeling adventurous, go scuba diving or snorkelling among the coral reefs. The warm waters are home to turtles, dolphins, and whales. If game-fishing is your sport, venture further out to sea in search of bonefish, marlin, mackerel, sailfish, and dogtooth tuna.

Inhambane Province

The gateway to Mozambique's most popular tourist destination,the Bazaruto Archipelago. While it is true that ‘the pearl of the Indian Ocean’ is only a short dhow trip away, Bazaruto isn’t the only thing Inhambane’s got going for it.

The beautiful beaches of Barra and Tofo are wonderful  destinations and the province is a tapestry of mangrove swamps, colonial architecture, & coconut, cashew, and tangerine plantations. Fishing enthusiasts head to the Inhambane coastline to cast their line in the hopes of catching marlin, bonefish, tuna, and sailfish. The coastline is dotted with coral reefs, making this a great destination for scuba diving and snorkelling. Plus the waters off its coast are rich in the last African population of the rare, endangered dugong.
