Mozambique

Mozambique provides the quintessential bush and beach experience and the recently restored Gorongosa National Park is being touted as Africa's Greatest Wildlife Restoration Story.

Mozambique's coastline stretches more than 2,500 kilometres and the country has stunning beaches, colonial and Portuguese architecture, World Heritage sites, colourful local culture and undiscovered wilderness areas. Mozambique borders several countries: Tanzania in the north, South Africa in the south, Zimbabwe in the southwest and Malawi in the northwest.

Now free from past political and economic difficulties, the country’s perseverance is finally being rewarded and the country is being restored at a remarkable pace. Mozambique's picturesque beaches and pristine reefs are some of the loveliest in all of Africa, if not the world. Unspoiled sandy beaches, warm, clean Indian Ocean waters teeming with fish and other marine life, and tropical, sunny days make Mozambique a superb destination before or after one's safari. The Bazaruto Archipelago and Pemba are home to several coastal and island resorts offering activities such as scuba diving, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing and sailing.

Three mainland national parks occur in Mozambique, namely Gorongosa, Zinave and Banhine. Bazaruto National Park is situated offshore is the main attraction for visitors. Gorongosa National Park - which is known as the Serengeti of the South - has been undergoing a massive restoration and wildlife restocking project since 2008 and is is now on every safari connoisseur's bucket list.

DID YOU KNOW?

Hyenas are portrayed as scavengers and will do so when given the opportunity. However, they are also accomplished hunters and obtain up to 75 per cent of their food from their own kills. In the Kruger National Park in South Africa they kill 50 per cent of their own prey and in the Kalahari in Botswana they kill up to 80 per cent. They detect carcasses by smell from as far as four kilometres away.
