Our current focus on our Facebook page is Mozambique, the long thin country opposite Madagascar on Africa’s south-east coast on the warm Indian Ocean.
The Portuguese was first lured to the palm fringed shores and colonized the country in 1505; and the Gorongosa National Park became internationally famous during the 1960’s for its great game viewing and beautiful scenery. But the long fought civil war, which began in 1977 and ended in 1992, claimed the lives of over 900,000 people, left 5 million civilians displaced and meant the country disappeared off the tourist beat.
Since peace and stability has returned to this beautiful country, it has lured visitors back from all over the world due to the warm and sunny climate, beautiful palm fringed beaches, untouched coral reefs and sleeply little fishing villages! It makes for a great escape if you want to combine some of the National Parks of Africa with a beach destination all in one tour.
