Mozambique is a hidden jewel in Africa’s south that has a delightfully long beach along the Indian Ocean, marine parks, reefs, and other amazing attributes that are worth a lengthy safari. Mozambique is still growing in tourism, which makes it a “diamond in the rough” that will make you glad you visited before it becomes a popular tourist attraction. If you’ve been wanting to get an epic African safari checked off your bucket list, then let Africa Safari Booking connect you with tour groups that can give you the Mozambican vacation of a lifetime.
Expect your travel to Mozambique to take at least 24 hours because of customs, the occasional long layover, and connecting international flights in Ethiopia or Johannesburg. For the most comfortable travel, keep your toiletry essentials with you in a carry-on bag and upgrade to first class for the long flights.
Portuguese is the official language of Mozambique, so you’ll depend on your guides for communication unless you know the language yourself. Your tour guides will also know the country intimately to guide you safely and efficiently to each destination. Here are some of the great things to expect during a Mozambican safari.
An Aquatic Paradise - Mozambique’s long coastline boasts some of the most immaculate beaches on the planet. To get the full Mozambican experience, you need at least one day on the coast to soak in the gorgeous sun, sands, and waves. Fresh seafood also needs to be part of this experience to make it complete. Tourists who have come here declare that the seafood is some of the best they've ever had, so don't miss the opportunity to try it! If you want more than a day near the water, which we recommend, you can also get a tour to see the country’s preserved coral reefs, island archipelagos, and thriving marine life.
Gorongosa National Park - If you want to see colossal elephants and epic landscapes like vast plains, Gorongosa National Park needs to be on your itinerary. It’s often called a "miniature Africa" for the way it contains diverse ecosystems on one reserve. For example, you’ll encounter crocodiles by the river and waterbucks on the floodplains. Trekking this massive wilderness will also get you close to lions, birds, hippos, and countless other plants and animals that are native to Africa.
Niassa Wildlife Reserve - Though most safari aficionados flock to South Africa’s Kruger National Park, Mozambique actually has a game park even larger than Kruger: Niassa Wildlife Reserve. This 15,444 square mile park is mainly African bush, protecting a plethora of majestic creatures and plants.
Resort Accommodations - Whether you’re in a tented bush camp for the night, lazing in a hammock by the sea, or living it up in a resort hotel in the capital, Mozambique’s accommodations will keep you comfortable and happy. Let your tour guides take care of all the details to match you with the amenities you need for the best safari ever.
