Mozambique, an evolving tourist destination offers outstanding beaches along its 2500 kilometres/1500 miles of coastline with excellent diving plus a string of small islands dotted around it including Bazaruto and Benguerra. This string of small islands forms a Marine National Park and its coral reefs are teeming with tropical fish making these islands a huge magnet for scuba divers and snorkelers.

The capital, Maputo is an attractive port retaining much of its Portuguese charm. The old town is a maze of narrow streets with many buildings belonging to its Portuguese colonial past. Here one can buy exotic spices, nuts and curios at the many colourful markets. There are excellent hotels, restaurants, and an exciting nightlife.

The small islands mentioned include Benguerra and Bazaruto which have become a haven for visitors who fly there to enjoy the unspoiled beauty and to experience some of the best snorkelling, diving and big game fishing anywhere. They are also home to some of Mozambique’s most important habitats for marine animals including, among others, East Africa’s last viable population of the endangered dugong, a large and exclusively marine herbivore. The island group is also home to all five highly endangered marine turtle species of the western Indian Ocean.


 

The Quirimbas Archipelago, in northern Mozambique, consists of over 50 coral islands, and has been granted protection status in the form of the Quirimbas National Park. The large park includes world-class fishing and diving locations.

Located on a remote private island in the archipelago is Medjumbe Island, the ultimate in intimate island accommodation for those who wish to experience exclusivity and privacy in a remote tropical location. This pristine island with its breathtaking coral reefs and ocean views is world-renowned for delicious seafood, gracious hospitality and exceptional diving.
