Unlike other safari destinations, the Mozambique safari gives you a chance to explore the marine wildlife to the fullest. Mozambique, situated on the Indian Ocean coastline, is dotted with popular beaches as well as a whole host of islands. This tropical paradise has so much to offer visitors; soft, dune-covered beaches and turquoise oceans, rich coral reefs and uninhabited archipelagos. And it is significantly cheaper than similar tropical destinations such as the Seychelles and less built-up than places like Mauritius, making this a much more accessible and altogether quainter holiday spot.
Mozambique tours include the Quirimbas, which is an archipelago consisting of more than 32 islands including Ibo, Matemo, Medjumbe, and Quirimba. Until recently Mozambique holiday destination had been relatively unknown and as a result is quiet and secluded. Here visitors can expect nothing less than peaceful, uninhabited beaches, crystal clear oceans and luxurious accommodation options. These beautiful islands offer a host of activities such as scuba safaris and island hopping dhow safaris, as well as sea kayaking and other water sports. On the Quirimbas, wildlife includes an abundance of marine life such as turtles, whales and dolphins, as well as thriving coral reefs.
The Bazaruto Archipelago consists of five main islands - Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Santa Carolina and tiny Bangué. These islands offer clear blue waters, fish of every colour of the rainbow and sandy beaches. In the oceans surrounding these islands visitors can see over 2,000 types of fish, as well as dolphins, turtles, whale sharks and the fascinating dugong. At this Mozambique holiday destination, there are also dozens of bird species, including fish eagles and pink flamingos. Animals of the area include red duikers, bushbucks and, especially on Benguerra, Nile crocodiles. Activities in the area include snorkelling, diving, bird watching safaris and whale watching.
Situated at the southern end of the Great African Rift Valley and in the heart of central Mozambique, Gorongosa National Park is one of the most richly diverse parks in the world. Formerly, it was the best wildlife safari in Mozambique. Sadly, however, due to Mozambique’s civil war, much of this diversity was destroyed and today the park is still undergoing restoration to its former glory. Despite this, Gorongosa still has a lot to offer travellers in terms of its diverse wildlife - some of which is found nowhere else in the world - as well as rich vegetation and plant life. At this Mozambique safari, Visitors can go on dawn and dusk game safaris, attend village tours as well enjoy boating, canoeing and hiking.
This is another well-known safari in Mozambique. The Niassa Nature Reserve is difficult to access but is well worth the effort as it is home to over 10,000 elephants, more than 200 wild dogs, as well as lions, hyenas and three endemic species; the Boehms Zebra, Johnstons Impala and Niassa Wildebeest. At Niassa, guests have the rare opportunity to experience a largely undiscovered wilderness area, with activities including game safaris, rock climbing, camping and stargazing.
