Mozambique

Off many traveller’s maps, Mozambique is a delight to discover and rewards the inquisitive tourist.  It is a land of considerable beauty, whose long coastline of glorious beaches offers unparalleled opportunities to swim in a turquoise, crystal clear sea, scuba dive amongst pristine coral, and sail, perhaps borrowing one of the famous Arab dhow fishing boats with billowing sails.

Mozambique, perhaps surprisingly, also offers a rich cultural history that is in evidence throughout the island.  First settled by Bantu tribes people from Central Africa, their ancient language and traditions are still alive today. Arab influence from 11th century traders who swept down the coast brought their own cultural influences, but this was replaced in 1498 by the arrival of Vasco da Gama who brought 400 years of Portuguese colonisation.  The legacy of Portuguese colonial rule can be seen throughout the island in its buildings, monuments and institutions, and also by the fact that Portuguese is the national language.

Mozambique handsomely rewards the traveller who takes the time to discover the island at a leisurely pace – here, fast tourism does not function. Enjoy its fine tropical climate, the charm of the local people and both the natural and man-made areas of interest.

Mozambique's climate is typical for southern Africa, the summer rains arrive in November and leave in April with the dryer season lasting from May to November. Indeed the dry season is the recommended time for tourists to visit Mozambique as game viewing is best due to the thinned vegetation and concentration of wildlife around waterholes.
