Mozambique Safaris and ToursDiscover the sandy beaches of Mozambique on a guided tour

About Mozambique

Situated along Africa’s Indian Ocean coastline from South Africa up to Tanzania is Mozambique. One of the continent's best kept secrets, with dazzling powder-white beaches, coconut palms, crystal blue waters, idyllic offshore islands and some of the world’s best diving. There is a plethora of marine creatures to spot too, Mozambique being an important migratory pathway for humpback and southern right whales. Manta rays, whale sharks and other rare species can also be seen off the coral reefs at Tofo.

Once Portugal’s most important colony, Mozambique has a fascinating cultural heritage and has overcome its turbulent past of civil strife, placing itself firmly back on the tourist map. Maputo, the vibrant and lively capital, and charming Inhambane and Magaruque Island with their bevy of beautiful beaches, hold real appeal. Get off-the-beaten-track and discover Mozambique on our safari tours.

The best of our Mozambique safari tours

These are the main highlights of our package tours and safari holidays in Mozambique. From the idyllic Bazaruto Archipelago to the picturesque beach town of Tofo. Mozambique is the perfect compliment to a wild safari adventure in eastern and southern Africa!

Bazaruto Archipelago

Nicknamed the 'Pearl of the Indian Ocean', this archipelago lies just off the shore of Vilanculos and is made up of six tiny but picturesque islands. On our tours we visit Magaruque, but all of the islands offer great beaches, dolphin and whale watching opportunities and traditional dhow sailing cruises.

Tofo

Another of Mozambique's glorious beach destinations, the coastal town of Tofo is best known for its long curved beach and for the nearby endless coral reefs, where manta rays, whale sharks, humpback whales and other rare marine life can be spotted by divers.

Uembje Lagoon

This famous natural landmark is located just outside the town of Bilene and is separated from the warm Indian Ocean by a strip of golden sand dunes. Some seawater does permeate the lagoon but this hasn't stopped vegetation and stunning beaches from ringing this idyllic spot - it's the perfect place to while away a few hours.

Maputo

Easily one of the most attractive capital cities in Africa, Maputo offers tree-lined avenues, Mediterranean-style architecture and a waterside setting. Previously known as ‘Lourenço Marques’ after the Portuguese trader who first explored the area, the city developed around an 18th century Portuguese fortress.
