Mozambique Safari & Beach Vacation Packages

Mozambique Map

Almost 2500 kilometers of breathtakingly beautiful golden beaches and sparkling blue waters, make the southern African beach destination of Mozambique a diver’s delight. The unspoiled scenery, offshore marine parks and slow-paced beach lifestyle of this sublime beach vacation destination often mark the beginning or end of an East or South African Safari tour itinerary. Explorer Safari is your specialist when it comes to planning Mozambique vacation packages combined with an African safari adventure.

Mozambique is easily accessible by air with direct flights from Portugal and South Africa into the capital of Maputo. From here, travel on to the popular island destinations of the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos via boat, light aircraft or helicopter transfer. Exploration of the less inhabited inland wooded areas is best done by guided tour.

Mozambique has something for everyone in terms of accommodation. Value-for-money vacation packages include backpackers, beach chalets, tented camps or family villas and beach resorts; but why not go all out and treat yourself to an extreme luxury eco-lodge experience?

This region is famous for its wildlife and beautiful beaches as well as a rich Portuguese cultural heritage. Mozambique is not a mass-tourism destination and the privacy of the beaches is a big draw card, depending where you go. The small, quiet town of Tofo boasts an incredible dive site while the more popular Ponto d’Ouro offers dolphin and whale diving along with a bustling market and opportunity to hob-nob with the vibrant local community. Don’t miss the chance to sample the exquisite Portuguese-influenced local cuisine that is provided by the restaurants and bars dotted around these towns.

Although Mozambique is best known for its water activities, a visit to the diverse landscapes at Gorongosa National Park in the Great Rift Valley, or Niassa National Reserve in Cabo Delgado provides an exceptional crowd-free big game viewing experience as well.

A Mozambique safari and beach vacation package does not end with scuba and game viewing, however. From snorkeling the pristine coral reefs and diving with dolphins, to horse riding trails on the beach, sunset trips on a traditional dhow or sipping cocktails in a hammock between the palm trees; Mozambique is a melting pot of memorable experiences. Mozambique is also an exceptional destination for an African honeymoon or family safari vacation with many lodges offering kids amenities.

Best Time to Visit Mozambique

The subtropical climate of this area means that during the dry months of April to December temperatures settle at a moderate to warm 25°C to 32°C. Between September and November, the weather in Mozambique is calm and warm. Over this time the game viewing is optimal and the whale migration is at its peak.
