Situated on the east coast of Africa, Mozambique claims 2500 kilometres of spectacular coastline. Its wide mainland beaches are lapped by the warm Indian Ocean, making it an ideal adventure holiday destination for snorkelling and scuba diving. The clear waters are also renowned for big game fishing while other activities include sunset cruises, horse-riding and cultural tours. Mozambique’s two major centres, Maputo and Inhambane, offer an exotic kaleidoscope of art, music and delicious local food as well as a lively nightlife scene. Immerse yourself in the fascinating local culture, marvelling at the impressive colonial architecture and interacting with the fabulously friendly local inhabitants. Those seeking a more remote getaway can head for the isolated beaches of Benguerra Island or the historic Portuguese and Muslim architecture of Mozambique Island.
