Travel to Mozambique

 

Let’s Build A Trip!

 

Beaches, scuba diving, fishing and prawns

1,500 miles of the most pristine, uncrowded and marine-rich beaches on the African coast lead into warm clear waters, untouched coral reefs, tropical coral islands, and some legendary prawns in Mozambique. Many of Mozambique’s islands boast no roads or stores–only pure, barefoot, postcard luxury in one of the world’s most beautiful beach locations–while its cities feature Portuguese colonial architecture, flowering tree-lined streets, and unique historical and cultural attractions. Come visit this azure gem and enjoy your privacy.

MOZAMBIQUE ARCHIPELAGOS AND CITIES

Bazaruto Archipelago – Five idyllic tropical islands eight miles off the coast boast no roads or stores; only pure, barefoot, postcard luxury in one of the world’s most beautiful beach locations awaits you.

Quirimbas Archipelago – The last untouched place on the East African coast is a chain of 32 pristine, never-developed coral islands in the far north of Mozambique. These islands have just recently started hosting visitors, so untouched raw beauty with some outstanding new beach camps will be your accommodations.

Maputo – The capital of Mozambique is a modern and bustling port city with beautiful Portuguese colonial architecture, flowering tree-lined streets, and unique historical and cultural attractions.

Pemba – This laidback, sun-drenched coastal port city is home to about 100,000 people and provides access to the Quirimbas Archipelago.

Vilanculos – The gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago has lovely beaches and a small International Airport providing easy access to the islands.
