World class beaches and colourful local culture

Breathtaking coastlines with azure waters, inland lakes under a sky of stars, and diverse wilderness game safaris

Geographically and historically Mozambique has a long and unsettled past. However the rate at which this country has turned itself around is staggering and stands testimony to the resilience and determination of its people.

Mozambique is now enjoying a taste of the success that it deserves as much of its wildlife, including big game such as elephants and rhinos, are making an impressive comeback; and with the wildlife comes tourism. Stunning in every dimension Mozambique is a rediscovered hot spot. Among the things to see are World Heritage sites, funky colonial architecture and colourful local culture not to mention some absolutely amazing beaches. The coastline and islands are breath-taking, classic white sand beaches lapped by aquamarine ocean set the scene for the ultimate chill out holiday. This beautiful coast and its numerous paradise islands are home to some of the most secret and romantic hideaways in Africa, and the diving is some of the best in the world.

Mozambique is located in south-eastern Africa and shares borders with Malawi, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The climate is tropical to sub-tropical and the terrain varies from coastal lowlands through to high plateaus and mountains.

January is rather unpredictable, with the rainy season in full flow and possibility of cyclones, thunderstorms and high humidity it is best to avoid the coastline during this time. However. the prices are low and the water is at a tropical 28 degrees, making for excellent diving.



The rainy season endures making the weather unpredictable and best to avoid.



In March, the rains ease, temperatures stay hot but the humidity eases making it a pleasant 28-32 degrees. By the latter half of the month the archipelagos becoming bustling tourist sites, with boutique lodges filling up quickly.



April, heralds the end of the rainy season, offering clear sunny days and light winds. It is a wonderful month to travel, the scenery is lush green and the snorkelling and diving conditions are excellent.



Possibly one of the best months to travel, with the temperatures hovering around a pleasant 25-28 degrees, it is perfect for both beach lovers and culture vultures. Visiting Ilha de Mozambique and Ibo Island is particularly good during May as the cooler temperatures allow visitors to explore without bounds.



It's the start of the dry season, with highs of 30 degrees during the day. June is prime game viewing, with the largest conservation area in Mozambique opening, Niassa Game Reserve. If you're looking for a bush and beach safari, June is the perfect month to go.



July is a great time for wildlife viewing, it is the heart of the dry season bringing clear, warm and sunny days.



August remains clear and sunny, making it a beautiful month for sightseeing and game viewing, or relaxing on pristine white sandy beaches. Keep in mind that the Quirimba Archipelago can be rather windy during August.



Temperatures start to climb in September, if you're looking to snorkel or scuba dive September is incredible, with clear warm waters and abundant marine life - you may even see the whale migration. Meanwhile on land, game viewing is at its peak, with animals having their young and gathering around depleting watering holes in Niassa.



October is another great month for wildlife viewing and lazing on the country's beaches with temperatures ranging from 30-34 degrees.



November can be summed up in two words, hot and humid. With the rainy season on the horizon abundant sunshine can turn into thunderstorms which quickly blow over and you can be paddling in the warm Indian Ocean once again or viewing game.



December, the rains are back, but clear days are still abundant - if you're looking for golden rays and blue skies it's probably not the ideal time for you. Prices fall dramatically, while the sea remains temperate with divers able to enjoy sightings of rainbow fish, turtles and dugongs.
