More on Beach holidays in Mozambique


Before the civil war of the seventies, Mozambique attracted more tourist visits than South Africa and Zimbabwe. This was attributed to the famous Gorongosa game park situated in the middle of the country. This suffered as many animals were hunted down for food during the war. However, great efforts were made to restock wildlife with a successful repopulation of the existing lions, hippos and elephants.

Know before you go

Mozambique is a former Portuguese colony and thus the official language is Portuguese. It is spoken by over half of the population as a second language with other major local languages including Swahili, Makhuwa and Sena. Apart from its great wildlife, Mozambique is also known for its great cuisine. Enjoy the amazing seafood and be sure to try their peri-peri prawns.

It is best to visit Mozambique when the weather is favourable i.e. between the months of May and October.
