The Perfect Indian Ocean Holiday
On the east coast of Africa, Mozambique is fast becoming a favourite beach and island holiday destination. The warm, clear water of the Indian Ocean makes it ideal for big game fishing and the colourful coral reefs make snorkelling and scuba diving popular leisure pursuits. Giant Turtles, Butterfly fish, Angelfish, Parrot fish and Devil Rays are commonly sighted, although the elusive Dugong is less frequently spotted.
Two clusters of islands on the horizon include the Bazaruto Archipelago and the Quirimbas Archipelago – perfect for slowing down and enjoying the easy pace of island life, fresh seafood and sunset cruises aboard a traditional dhow.
There’s more to Mozambique than laid back island living, it also offers a plethora of big game, with the game reserves being a popular choice for game safaris, including the beautiful Gorongosa National Park.
Portuguese is widely spoken in Mozambique, as is English with Swahili being spoken in the northern parts of the country. Mozambique’s colonial heritage is evident in the architecture of Maputo, Vilanculos and Inhambane.
