Mozambique

Legendary beaches and islands and languid Afro-Latino rhythms have long lured travelers to Mozambique. Wildlife has made a comeback, too, and vast tracts of inland bush now offer safari opportunities for well-heeled connoisseurs.

Mozambique Cities and Regions

Southern Mozambique

Southern Mozambique’s coastline put the country on the map, with mile after mile of unspoiled beaches. Easy access from neighboring South Africa, however, means you’ll likely be sharing your patch of sand with many others.

Maputo

Wide, jacaranda-lined avenues dotted with shady sidewalk cafes, Mediterranean-style architecture, fascinating art museums, and pulsating nightlife are the hallmarks of this waterside capital.

Northern Mozambique

Long inaccessible, the north is now an insider’s playground, with several idyllic island getaways, plus culture and history escapes to Mozambique Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Inland is the Niassa Reserve, for luxury wildlife safaris.

Central Mozambique

The country’s mountainous center would be easy to overlook were it not for its convenience as an overland transport corridor and its star attraction: the recently rehabilitated and once-again impressive Gorongosa National Park. Beira, the region's hub, makes a logical jumping off point for visits to the park.

Lake Niassa

Mozambique’s half of Lake Niassa (aka Lake Malawi) is completely untrammeled in comparison with its Malawian counterpart. In addition to being prime backpacker’s territory, it’s home to one of southern Africa’s finest eco-lodges.

Islands & Archipelagoes

Mozambique’s coast is fringed by chains of islands – notably the Bazaruto Archipelago in the south and the Quirimbas Archipelago in the far north. Don't miss visiting at least one offshore destination.
