Mozambique Tours & Package Safari Trips
Get even more from Southern Africa: combine your African safari with a Mozambique beach break!
Draped along Africa’s Indian Ocean coastline from South Africa up to Tanzania is magical Mozambique. It's 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 are a litany of marine creatures to spot too, Mozambique being an important migratory pathway for humpback and southern right whales. And manta rays, whale sharks and other rare species can 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 departing in 2023 and beyond.
Our Mozambique package tours and holidays are a great way to add some sun, sea and sand to your safari adventure to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, Botswana and elsewhere! From the crystal clear waters of Magaruque Island to laid-back Tofo, Mozambique offers a beautiful contrast to the rest of southern Africa, and it's a wonderful beach destination. Staying in tents and travelling in a fully equipped overland truck with the services of a two-person crew, these escorted tours are stacked with incredible African experiences. From Kruger National Park to Victoria Falls and more, our Mozambique tours take in more than Mozambique!
Frequently asked questions about our Mozambique package tours and beach holidays
Will I see the Big Five on your Mozambique tours and safaris?
Mozambique is better known as a beach destination than a wildlife hotspot, and so you won't see much in terms of big game in Mozambique itself.
However, all of our Mozambique safari tours also visit neighbouring countries including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. In destinations such as Hwange National Park and Kruger National Park, you will have a great chance to spot all manner of iconic African wildlife, including the Big Five.
What is the best time of year to visit Mozambique?
What do I need to pack for my camping safari to East Africa?
Some of the important items to remember on your Mozambique tour are: sleeping bag, travel pillow, towel, Mosquito spray (with active DEET ingredient), your own personal first aid kit, torch, antibacterial wipes, a photocopy of your passport data, and your Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate.
What is the local payment for on your camping safaris?
Please note that due to exchange rate fluctuations in the US dollar, the local payment amount may be subject to changes.

Is Mozambique a safe destination for travellers from the LGBTQ+ community?
Same sex marriage is illegal but there are some protections in place for people of all sexual orientations, and homosexuality was decriminalized in 2014, making Mozambique significantly more progressive than some of its African neighbours. 26 - 50% of consulted citizens consider Mozambique a good place to live for gay and lesbian people.
It is generally very safe for LGBTQ+ travellers to visit Mozambique, though discretion is advised and precautions should be taken when travelling. As long as you use common sense, travelling in Mozambique shouldn’t be a problem.
The LGBTQ+ Travel Safety Index is designed to provide a good overall picture of attitudes towards the LGBTQ+ community in each country and may not reflect the experience of foreign travellers to the country.
