Mozambique

  • Rob, we’re back after a fantastic three weeks in Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Arrangements went like clockwork; transfers were spot on; guides and accommodation were great and we had some amazing experiences. Thank you so much for your attention to detail; your knowledge and willingness to work with Rob Janisch to make it all come together. We remain great ambassadors for Safari Consultants and passed on your details to most people we met! Zimbabwe really captured our hearts. Great people; wonderful wildlife; and amazing scenery. Craig Van Zyl was great and the wildlife at Mana Pools was fantastic. The food/camp/hosting was superb. Must enlarge on our Mana experiences when we see you. Lots to tell!!!!! The Vumba was a terrific idea – and Rob Janisch proved a great host up in the mountains. I think the area could form a great bridge between Mana Pools and Mozambique. Explore Gorongosa was brilliant – Rob hosted us personally all the time and to be honest, made us feel like one of the family. You just know we’ll be talking to you before long about our next African adventure. Thank you once again.

Mozambique

Introduction

Introduction to the spectacular islands of Mozambique

Mozambique is a large, under-developed country which is currently best known for its remote and beautiful beach destinations. Whilst there are a number of incredible beach locations on the mainland, it is arguably the stunning islands of the Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos which attract the most attention. Island properties such as Benguerra and Vamizi offer the ultimate in luxury beach retreats, with stunning empty beaches and wonderful marine nature. If you are looking for an exclusive natural paradise along the East Africa coast, Mozambique is likely to provide the most amazing options.

In safari terms Mozambique is still recovering from years of civil conflict, but Gorongosa National Park in the central region is making real progress and already provides a wonderfully exclusive bush experience for the more seasoned traveller. It is a beautiful park with a wide variety of game and some excellent walking options.

Access to all regions of Mozambique is usually best by air from South Africa, but the northern coastline can also be accessed by air from Tanzania and Kenya. It is also possible to fly in on private charter flights from other southern African countries such as Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Accordingly, a beach holiday in Mozambique can easily be combined with a wildlife safari in any of the major safari destinations.
