Choosing Mozambique as your holiday destination allows you access to an unspoilt marine paradise complete with white sand beaches, warm Indian Ocean waters and the ultimate in luxury accommodation. Set on the Indian Ocean side of Southern Africa, Mozambique is neighboured by South Africa to the south, Tanzania to the north and shares borders with Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Swaziland.
Stay in upmarket lodges set on pristine beaches or escape to idyllic tropical islands just off the mainland. All of these evocative destinations offer you the chance to explore the coral reefs, swim with brightly coloured tropical fish and generally spoil yourself with fantastic food, wine and spa treatments.
Discover the beautiful Quirimbas Archipelago located off the northern coastline of Mozambique with its five tropical islands and laidback ambience. One of the most beautiful places in the world, these islands with their coral pink beaches, luxury lodges and host of activities from big game fishing adventures to romantic sunset sailing trips will enchant you.
Explore the protected eco-systems of the gorgeous Bazaruto Archipelago while staying in decadent island-style luxury in exclusive beach lodges. Spend your days outdoors exploring the island or the warm oceans around it and at night look forward to fine wines, outstanding cuisine and a great night’s sleep.
Whether you choose to stay on-shore near the capital city of Maputo and the southern region, further up the coast near Vilanculos or in one of the archipelagos you can look forward to an unforgettable luxury vacation surrounded by outstanding natural beauty in one of the most unspoilt places of the world. Whether it is romance you are searching for or a fabulous family destination, Mozambique overdelivers in terms of luxurious accommodation and interesting experiences.
The best time to visit is during the slightly cooler, dry season from June to October. Malaria is present in Mozambique so you need to be prepared.
It is not advisable to travel by road in Mozambique; many of the roads are in bad repair and in some seasons, impassable. The country’s tourist hotspots of Maputo, Pemba and Vilanculos are easily accessible by scheduled flights from various locations including OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg and the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport in Nelspruit, South Africa making it easy to combine a safari experience with a beach holiday.

Made up of 27 coral islands, the Quirimbas Archipelago stretches along Mozambique’s northern coast, from Pemba to the border of Tanzania. As many of the islands are uninhabited, accommodation in the Quirimbas is limited to a small number of lodges and resorts
