Mozambique Holidays

MOZAMBIQUE MADE EASY

If you’re looking for unspoiled East Africa, filled with history, wildlife, and breathtaking beaches to rival any Indian Ocean destination, holidays to Mozambique are for you.

Endless miles of pale sand and clear water line the coast from the capital of Maputo and the Machangulo Peninsula in the south, through Vilankulo and the Bazaruto Archipelago, to the barely touched islands of the Quirimbas beside Pemba in the north.

Enjoy zesty cocktails at luxurious resorts surrounded by ocean playgrounds for swimming, diving and watersports. Stay where colourful reefs sit side-by-side with colonial landmarks, and there’s always a party to be found after the sun goes down.

Sail in search of whales and dugongs, go deep-sea fishing for black marlin, ride horses in the waves, or sip and nibble at your favourite shoreside bar. If you’re looking for even more, it’s easy to create an idyllic itinerary when you mix your castaway archipelago escape with a few days in cosmopolitan Maputo. For a complete adventure, add a safari in Mozambique’s own Gorongosa National Park or Niassa Reserve, or hop across the border to Kruger Park.

Mauritius and the Maldives are amazing additions to any African holiday, but Mozambique offers stunning islets and sweeping beaches beside rolling dunes, all just a drive or short flight from one of the continent’s most captivating cities and a rich untainted wilderness. Speak to our Travel Specialists to plan your trip today.

Essential Information

Things to do

From city sightseeing to castaway islands, Mozambique has an experience for every mood. Browse museums and galleries among the European architecture of Maputo. Spot whales, turtles, and rare dugongs from the tropical Indian Ocean coast. Search for giraffes, hippos, and crocodiles in the Central Reserve, or tick off the African ‘Big Five’ in Gorongosa National Park. Water-ski, windsurf, or horse ride along the beach - and through the sea. Snorkel and scuba among coral reefs and tropical fish around the Bazaruto Archipelago.

Embrace the atmosphere of afternoon markets and lively nightlife in Pemba, or tour the ruins, fortresses, and churches of Ibo. Kayak through mangrove wetlands, visit a coconut plantation, or picnic on a deserted sandbank in the Quirimbas Archipelago. Watch the sunset from the Red Dunes at Vilanculos. Or simply relax, sample the fresh seafood, and soak up the sun at your luxury island resort.

Mediterranean Maputo

Far more than a gateway city, Mozambique’s cosmopolitan capital is a beautiful and historic destination that brings a slice of Europe to the Indian Ocean coast. Under Portuguese rule until 1975, Maputo is filled with grand buildings, including one of the world’s most beautiful train stations and the neoclassical City Hall overlooking Independence Square. Grab a snap at the Casa De Ferro, the movable iron house designed by Gustave Eiffel.

Tour the gardens, statues, and artefacts of Maputo Fortress. Meet local creatives at Núcleo De Arte, enjoy a peaceful stroll through Tunduru Botanical Gardens, or browse the craft, flower, and food fair of Feima. Pavement cafés on palm-lined promenades offer the perfect daytime environment to taste local flavours as you watch the world go by. After sunset, Maputo comes alive with entertainment and festivities at every turn.

Multi-centre Mozambique

South Africa’s famous Kruger National Park is just four hours by road from Maputo, making Mozambique perfect for a city, safari, and beach multi-centre without compromise. Direct flights from Nairobi and Dar es Salaam mean adding the pristine coastline of the Vilankulo or the archipelagos of Quirimbas or Bazaruto to your Maasai Mara or Serengeti game drives is easy too.

When you plan an Africa safari holiday featuring Mozambique, you can combine lion tracking with reef diving, add dugong sightings to rhino spotting, and switch seamlessly from the savannah to the ocean. Speak with our experts about how you can add a laidback and luxurious Mozambique stay to your South Africa, Tanzania, or Kenya experience.

Best time to go

Protected from rains and storms by the landmass of Madagascar, Mozambique enjoys a warm and dry climate almost all year round. The coolest and driest months coincide with the popular holiday season from July to August, making this the country’s busiest period for visitors. Low season runs from December to March when days are at their hottest, and the majority of showers are experienced.

Show More
Show Less

For flexible travellers, May to June and September to October are great times to arrive for the best balance of fewer crowds and perfect weather. Game viewing is also at its best between August and September when the vegetation is thinner and animals gather around watering holes. If you’re looking to get out on the ocean, the whale-watching season lasts from June to November.
