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.
