Why go to Mozambique

Mozambique is one of those beautiful island paradises that one only believes exists in your mind. There are endless beaches and old world charm. The people are amazing, the beaches endless, fishing is out of this world and the seafood is abundant. The islands are phenomenal and the traditional dhows and slow paced lifestyle make this a destination that should be on the top of your bucket list.Mozambique boasts some of the best diving and snorkelling sites in Africa, many of them only recently discovered. There are miles of colourful, untouched coral and a multitude of tropical fish species. Dive sites range from six metre beginner spots to vast coral walls for advanced divers to explore.

Where to go in Mozambique 

Bazaruto Archipelago

These is a group of 5 islands in the Mozambique channel that became a national marine park in 1971. This also includes the surrounding coral reefs and this is the largest Marine Park in the Indian Ocean. Over and above the most beautiful coral reefs there are whales and dolphins and incredible fish and the last of the dugongs on the African coast. On the two main islands, Bazaruto and Benquera there are lakes that host pelicans and otters and flamingoes.

Maputo

The capital has cathedrals and museums, markets and botanical gardens, the port and the famous peri peri prawns.

Dhow Cruise

The traditional sailing boats of the region will take you on a magical journey to view, secluded beaches, river mouths and mangrove forests. There are birds and fish and an abundance of marine biodiversity.

Whale Sharks

Tofo is known as the hotspot for diving in Mozambique and although the coral reefs are more abundant in other areas, in season the Manta Rays, Humpback Whales and the Whale Sharks more than compensate.

Inhaca Island

A few minutes by boat from Maputo, this island houses some of the rarest fauna and flora in the word. The island only has a few hundred inhabitants and they are all dedicated to preserving the biodiversity of this paradise. At low tide it is also possible to walk to Portuguese Island, which is only, white sandy beaches surrounded by blue seas.

Quirimbas

The Quirimba Archipelago is made up of 32 coral islands just off the coast of northern Mozambique.Pristine and largely unknown, these islands are visited by only a handful of guests.There are butterflies, tropical flowers, monkeys and birds. Apart from the local fisherman paddling in dug-out canoes there are no people anywhere to be seen.

The turquoise waters are rich with coral and fish, so it’s not surprising there is a marine sanctuary here. Ribbon eels, spotted sweetlips and yellow-banded snappers are some of the 375 fish species you might see. There are green and hawksbill turtles, humpback whales and the rare dugong.Quirimba is a place to be visited soon, before it is discovered by the rest of the world.

Ibo Island and Ilha de Mozambique

 Are undoubtedly the jewels in Mozambique’s cultural crown. Both have an evocative collection of colonial ruins that is slowly being brought back to life. Dig below the surface and you will also find much of interest in Pemba, Vilanculos and the small communities living on the Bazaruto and Quirimba islands.
