Mozambique

Mozambique travel guide

Lapped by the turquoise Indian Ocean, resurging Mozambique offers beautiful beaches, succulent seafood and big game parks on the up

Mozambique is back. Once one of Africa’s most-visited destinations until civil war wiped the country off the tourist map, Mozambique is slowly resurrecting its costal resorts and game reserves.

Essentially two countries, Mozambique’s southern coastline is already popular with a few African holidaymakers while the north’s lack of infrastructure makes it an ideal choice for intrepid travellers keen to beat their own trail.

Southern Mozambique’s beautiful palm-lined beaches are wonderfully crowd-free and offer great snorkeling, diving and game fishing. Many are within a day’s drive of Johannesburg and are close to Mozambique’s national parks. The little-visited north has fewer highlights but Ilha do Moçambique and the island town of Ibo is definitely worth a look.

Wanderlust recommends

  1. Go back in time on delightfully crumbling Ibo island, in the Quirimbas Archipelago
  2. Walk with lions (before everyone else does) in resurging Gorongosa National Park
  3. Go north to the marula-thatched huts, Makonde carvers and beautiful beaches around Pemba
  4. Go diving at unspoilt Two Mile Reef which teems which tiny coral fish and manta rays

Wanderlust tips
