There is a lively fishing community as well as plenty of historic sights to explore, including the Fort of São Sebastião (the oldest complete fort still standing in sub-Saharan Africa), and the Green Mosque. There are plenty more churches, temples and museums to tick off your list, too. It’s an instagrammers paradise for photos at the ruins.


Laze by the Lake of Stars

Part of Mozambique’s border with Malawi is the beautiful Lake Niassa (also Lake Malawi), an undiscovered jewel with pristine white beaches and turquoise waters. A variety of beautiful accommodation exists right on the lake.

Party in Maputo

Head to the Mozambican capital for a ‘maningue nice’ (local slang for ‘awesome’) evening out on the town. Take a leisurely stroll around this bustling city, immersed in the delicious aromas of grilled chicken, marrabenta music and Afro-Latino vibe. Don’t miss a visit to the fish market, where you can enjoy fresh seafood


Visit Ibo Island

Culture vultures will enjoy a stay at Ibo Island Lodge, with its traditional architecture, colourful coral reefs and fascinating heritage. Take time to wander around the dusty streets and atmospheric Fort of São João, built by Portuguese colonialists in the late-18th century.


Feast to your heart’s content

The cuisine of Mozambique is influenced by the myriad cultures that have shaped its heritage. Dine on the juicy prawns and seafood that have made the region famous, tuck into delicious breads and pastries, and sample the local brews.




Go on safari

Following years of strife, Gorongosa National Park has been rehabilitated and is touted as Africa’s ‘Lost Eden’. Its magnificent floodplains, savannahs and forests are home to elephant, lion, zebra, buffalo, wildebeest and more than 300 species of bird.


Walk in the Chimanimani Mountains

The lowland forest, miombo woodland and afro-alpine grasslands provide a scenic landscape for walking. You may spot some of the many birds that reside here, or perhaps a bushbuck or sable antelope. Or take a journey into the long distant past through rock art dated at 2000-10,000 years old.
