Why go on a Mozambique Safari or Mozambique Budget Tour?

The beautiful country of Mozambique is free from tourist suffocation. It’s inspiring to see how the locals are putting their shattered past behind them so that they can rebuild their country.

Yet Mozambique tours have so much offer the eager traveler. With stunning beaches and islands, this destination has become rather famous. Mozambique also offers colourful local cultures and charming colonial architecture. The islands of Vilanculos, Ebo, Bazaruto, Benguerra, Pemba & Quirimbas Archipelago are picturesque. Either relax on the beach or dive into the clear warm Indian Ocean and I’m sure you’ll agree Mozambique is true paradise.

Quirimbas Archipelago

While some areas are rustic with poor roads, Quirimbas Archipelago in the north of Mozambique is tropical bliss. Either wade in warms waters or hike through mangroves during low tide. Brace yourself for friendly, energetic local children who are dying to meet and play with you!

Bazaruto Island

Bazaruto is an island situated around 80 kilometers southeast of the Save River mouth. It is the biggest island in the entire Bazaruto Archipelago. While it’s crystal clear waters make it the most popular tourist destination in Mozambique.

As a result, the islands of Bazaruto are a paradise getaway. Furthermore they offer a wide range of private accommodation. Tranquil sunsets and solitude are typical of your time spent on the Bazaruto islands. Travelers can enjoy pristine and uncrowded beaches which are fringed with palm trees swaying in the breeze. In contrast to moments of relaxation, there are a range of exciting activities to enjoy. These include superb bird-watching and fantastic diving and snorkeling. An exhilarating fishing trip is also popular with many visitors.

snorkelling-in-africa

The archipelago has earned its reputation as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’. Boats are the only means of transport between the islands thereby preserving the integrity of the sealife.

The coral reefs and sparkling waters offer some of the finest diving in the world. Dive sites are not crowded and as a result the sea life is diverse and plentiful. Some sites reach up to 30 meters deep with amazing visibility. Diving here you will see sheltered reefs brimming with dolphins, humpback whales, whale sharks, manta rays and turtles.

scuba divingInhambane

Also known as ‘Terre de Boa Gente’ meaning Land of Good People, the city of Inhambane is in the south of Mozambique. While 470 kilometers northeast of Maputo, the town is quiet and rich in history. It was the southernmost port which the Arabs used for the slave trading industry. Vasco da Gama visited the area in 1498 and claimed Inhambane Bay for Portugal. This then led to the Portuguese creating a trading post here in 1534. Yet in the 20th century, Maputo became the primary center of Mozambique. As a result Inhambane’s status weakened and the town’s economy suffered.

The city now contains a museum and bustling market. The main market or ‘Mercado Central’ is along the central avenue. At the market you can buy local produce including spices and vegetables along with fresh prawns, fish and cashew nuts. The province is the second largest cashew producer after Nampula and also grows coconut and citrus fruit trees.

Praia do Tofo

Praia do Tofo is commonly known as ‘Tofo’ and is in the south-eastern region of Mozambique. While only a small town, it is also a huge tourist attraction.

Tofo is also home to diving retreats, drawing travelers to it’s beautiful reefs which are rich with marine life.

The people of Tofo are friendly and hospitable and in addition the town has vibrant night life with great restaurants.

Weather in Mozambique

Mozambique has a tropical climate with lovely sunshine throughout the year. Average temperatures are around 28°C to 32°C which makes it a perfect holiday destination to enjoy outdoor activities. The rainy season is from November to April yet it still remains hot and humid especially during December and February. In contrast inland is slightly cooler with heavier rainfall mostly during January and March.

However the Southern regions of Mozambique are prone to cyclones. So during the months of January and February the region experiences torrential downpours. Hence the Bazaruto Archipelago is best avoided during the cyclone season.

May to November is the Winter season. Travel during this time if you prefer the cooler temperatures of 15 to 21 degrees Celsius. Game viewing in Mozambique is also ideal during the dry season particularly from August to September. As the vegetation thins out you will have greater visibility as animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes.

Flying to Mozambique

International flights from South Africa to Mozambique are the main flights in Mozambique. Yet other routes fly to Mozambique from Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya, Portugal and Qatar.

South African Airways have several daily departures from Johannesburg (O.R. Tambo Airport) which fly into Maputo.
