Mozambique Tours, Packages and Budget Safaris

Take yourself on one of our Mozambique tours to visit this country that is situated in south east Africa enclosed by Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and the warm Indian Ocean. Portuguese is the official language, however, English is commonly spoken along with Swahili, Makhuwa and Sena in the outlying rural areas. Located off from Mozambique is the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park, located on the east coast of Africa. This has been described as one of the most spectacular destinations on earth. The waters of the Indian Ocean are a paradise for marine life, where you will find the best chances for snorkelling and scuba diving, swim close to dolphins, manta rays and whale sharks. There are tiny villages in Mozambique where ngalawas are moored to mangrove trees, locals sew dhow sails on old Singer sewing machines and children freely play football on sandy fields. Offshore, there are small islands where turtles come ashore to nest. Pemba lies on the coast and is renowned for water sport and diving. The coral reefs are close to the shore, providing a feast for the eyes. In the centre of Pemba there is an authentic local market where local art, crafts and silverware can be purchased.

There is a range of different types of Mozambique Tours to choose from. These safari tours and packages do not solely cover Mozambique. These include:

Why go to Mozambique on an African Budget safari?

Bazaruto Island

Bazaruto, or in Portuguese Ilha do Bazaruto from Ushurutswa meaning ‘island of the mist’, is a sandy island situated around 80 kilometres southeast of the mouth of the Save River in Mozambique. It is the biggest island in the entire Bazaruto Archipelago, as well as in the Bazaruto National Park.  The shores seem to build up slowly but surely, due to the warm, southward-running Mozambique Current.  Because of the crystal clear water along this shoreline region, much of the channel patterns below water around the island are distinctive. Bazaruto Island is perhaps the most popular tourist destination in the whole of Mozambique, originally named Santa Antonio by Portuguese explorers. It was later named Benguerra after a local Tribal chief.

Praia do Tofo

Praia do Tofo, or just ‘Tofo’, is a tiny town and huge tourist attraction located in south-eastern Mozambique. The town is situated on the coast of the Indian Ocean, on Ponto do Barra peninsula in the Inhambane Province of Jangamo. It is just 22 kilometres from the city of Inhambane and contains plenty of beach villas, diving retreats and stunning scenery. The long stretch of Indian Ocean shore draws in tourists, as well as the beautiful reefs close by which attract a variety of marine life.

Inhambane

Also known as ‘Terre de Boa Gente’ meaning ‘Land of Good People’, the city of Inhambane is situated in southern Mozambique on Imhambane Bay, 470 kilometres northeast of Maputo. It is the Inhambane Province’s capital and as of 2008, had a recorded population of almost 66,000 – quite a significant rise from the 1997 censes of 54,157. The city spreads over 68,615 square kilometres, with a tropical climate that gets more humid along the coast and more arid inland.

Liwonde National Park

Here you will find some of the best game viewing in Malawi, such as elephants, antelope, and a large a variety of bird species. Liwonde covers many aspects of the wildlife in Africa. Expose yourself to the bush by going onmorning bush walks with experienced guides. Go on exhilarating boat rides where you can spot hipposand crocodiles. Sit at the water’s edge in the evenings and quietly watch the wildlife that surrounds you.

Lilongwe

Lilongwe is the capital of Malawi, with New Town in the North and Old Town in the South. Old Town has wonderful markets, street cafés and bustling restaurants, making it an interesting place to visit. The markets offer Indian spices and clothing stalls where you can test your skills at bargaining. It also offers a golf club if you feel like a swing or two.

Zomba Plateau

Zomba was the former capital of Malawi and the town is a hive of activity, with lovely old architecture. The buildings are covered with soft greenery and ferns. It also has a vibey city market that you can browse through. However, the Plateau is where the real beauty lies with mountains, streams and woodland trails.

Best time to go on a tour to Mozambique

Due to the fact that the weather is ideal most time of the year – anytime is a good time to visit, there are only a few variables which you need to consider. May to November is the Winter season and you may prefer the cooler temperatures of 15 to 21 degrees celcius. There is less rain during this time and you will avoid the heavy downpours during the Summer season of December to April (27 to 32 degrees celcius).

You most probably would love to see the game of Mozambique and the dry season from August to September is best for safaris. The vegetation has thinned out so you will have greater visibility of the animals and they congregate around the rivers and waterholes.
