MOZAMBIQUE LUXURY TRAVEL TIPS 

There are many reasons why Mozambique is a top choice for a luxury beach vacation. Mozambique has so much to offer - private islands, untouched wilderness areas, deserted sandy white beaches, incredible marine life, freshly caught seafood, and adventurous activities to fill your days. The perfect backdrop for a honeymoon or romantic holiday, Mozambique is also ideal for family vacations, getaways with friends, and bucket list trips for retirees.

There are many types of adventurous activities in Mozambique. For experienced scuba divers Mozambique offers plenty of opportunities for world class scuba diving and one of the best diving spots is Neptune’s Arm, an underwater island surrounded by pristine reefs just waiting to be explored. Mozambique is also one of the best places to swim with whale sharks, in fact Tofu Island is considered the whale shark capital of Africa. You can also participate in a sea turtle conservation program during nesting season with a reputable organization. Other ways to experience the beautiful surrounding land and sea are snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, horseback riding, and swimming with dolphins.

Where should you go in Mozambique? The Bazaruto Archipelago is made up of six stunning islands where you’ll find some of the best beaches in Mozambique. Tourism is still relatively new to the region, so the resorts that have sprung up are remarkably secluded with plenty of privacy and opportunities to feel like a castaway on a deserted island, with all of the luxury amenities you can imagine within reach - barefoot luxury at its best.

The best time to visit Mozambique? The optimal dry season runs from April to December, and the wet and rainy season (Mozambique’s summer) goes from January to March. Turtle nesting usually takes place from November to March, Whale shark spotting generally takes place December to March.

How do you get to Mozambique? The capital, Maputo, is just a 45 minute flight from Johannesburg, which is an international hub with direct flights from the United States. We recommend experiencing Mozambique by combining it with a luxury safari in Tanzania, South Africa, Zimbabwe/Victoria Falls, or Botswana, as direct charter flights can be arranged fairly easily.
