Why Mozambique?

Palm trees line the tropical beaches. Crystal clear water, snorkeling and scuba diving, fresh seafood. A holiday in Mozambique includes these and so much more. We can extend your safari to Botswana, South-Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia etc with a beach extention. We offer among other things individual (4×4) self drive trips as well as international group tours. If you have any specific wishes, you are most welcome. 

Mozambique is a desperately poor country, the world’s poorest by some estimates, but one where the people are open and generous. It also has some of the best beaches on the east coast of Africa and some of the worst roads. Although the Portuguese arrived here in the late 15th century and set up trading post, colonization did not start in earnest until the late 17th century with the setting up of private agricultural estates. The country consists of a wide coastal plain rising to mountains and plateaus on the Zimbabwean, Zambian and Malawian boarders. The population is around 19 million and the main tribal groups are the Makus, Tsonga, Malawi and Shona. Portuguese is the official language, with many African Languages spoken.

Best time to travel to Mozambique

Mozambique is located in the south eastern part of the African continent. The country can be visited throughout the year, but there are a few periods which can better be avoided. Mozambique has a cyclone season, which takes place in January and February. Be prepared for heavy rainfall and storms during that period. However, since Madagascar is located in front of the coast of Mozambique, real depressions are blocked.

The best period to travel to Mozambique really depends on what your main purpose of visit is. If you would like to do lots of game drives, it best to travel during the dry season, which is in August and September. The bush has thinned out and wildlife is concentrated around rivers and waterholes. Eventhough the period from December until April is known as the rainy season, it’s still a nice period to catch a lot of sun. It’s also the summer period and therefore the temperatures will be around 30 degrees celcius. The rains will be limited to one tropical shower per day, which is not too bad.

Best time to travel

May until November are good months to travel. Whale season starts in July until November. 

Cyclone season

January and February is the rain and cyclone season, better avoid.
