African Safari Vacation Package to Mozambique
The beaches of Mozambique held their reputation throughout the years of civil war and now with the country finding lasting peace the reputation is growing fast. The Bazaruto Archipelago was the flag-bearer for the country’s reputation but now areas such as the Quirimbas Archipelago has propelled the country into iconic status. The beaches of Mozambique offer something for everybody, probably the widest selection of beach activities and accommodations in Africa.
The warm waters of the Indian Ocean and the nutrient reefs of the Mozambique Channel ensure that visitors will never leave disappointed. Diving and big game fishing are of the best in Africa. The beaches of the islands and mainland are post card perfect and the warm waters add to the paradise feel.
The coast of Mozambique is rich in history. Ruins and monuments bear testimony to the ancient trade routes and slave trade. Added to all this is the move to re-establish the once-great game parks to their former glories.
Best time to travel to Mozambique
The best time to visit Mozambique for a beach holiday is from April to September when the days are warm and sunny. For big game fishing the best time to visit Mozambique is during the summer months of October to March.
Most tourists to Mozambique arrive via South Africa, either by air from Johannesburg or by road on overland tours or self-drive safaris. Daily flights from Johannesburg into Maputo carry most fly-in tourists. Other international airlines also have regular flights into Maputo.
Flights from Johannesburg to towns further north such as Pemba and Vilanculos access the beaches and islands of the remote regions of the country.
Self-drive visitors generally arrive from South Africa at a number of crossing points. A popular self-drive route is accessing Mozambique from a Kruger Park safari. Border crossings from Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia and now Tanzania are also an option for the self-drive visitor.
