Mozambique is located on the southeast coast of Africa. It is bound by Swaziland to the south, South Africa to the southwest, Zimbabwe to the west, Zambia and Malawi to the northwest, Tanzania to the north and the Indian Ocean to the east.
The mighty Zambezi River divides the country into two topographical regions. To the north the narrow coastline moves inland to hills and low plateaux, and further west to rugged highlands, while to the south the lowlands are broader with the Lebomo mountains located in the deep south.
Mozambique has a tropical climate with two seasons; with five principal rivers and several smaller ones the country is prone to flooding in the wet season from October to March. However climatic conditions vary depending on altitude.
The capital city of Maputo is filled with restaurants and shops for you to explore.
Inland is Niassa – a beautiful lake that borders Tanzania and Malawi. This area has been described as a reflection of true, untouched Africa. Visit Gorongosa Park in the North to see wildlife and for a truly cultural experience.
If it’s luxury you are after then head to Vilanculos where the resorts of Bazaruto Archipelago are breathtaking. The rugged coastline invites visitors to experience adventures such as dolphin tours and island trips as well as enjoy some of the best, white sandy beaches in Africa, including Pemba beach and those found at Quirimbas Archipelago. The azure waters make it a little piece of paradise, well known for snorkelling and scuba diving.
Whether exploring the many islands just off the coastline or staying on land Mozambique offers exciting adventure for intrepid travellers.
