Discover Luxury Mozambique Holidays
Mozambique beckons with its ravishing coastline, buzzy Afro-Mediterranean vibe, fascinating tradition and richly infused culture. The main coastline and remote archipelagos offer coral reefs, rainbow-coloured fish, graceful dhows and powder-white beaches. For over 400 years, the Portuguese colonised Mozambique, leaving a captivating legacy of colonial-style architecture and a flamboyant culture rich in tradition and history. Visitors cannot help but be charmed by the liveliness and exuberance of this beguiling and exotic nation.
Mozambique borders Tanzania to the north, South Africa to the south and Zimbabwe and Zambia to the west. The east of the country is flanked by the Indian Ocean which boasts some of the most delectable beaches on the earth. Since the mid-1990s, Mozambique has seen a complete transformation and has blossomed into one of the fastest growing economies in Africa with tourism benefitting enormously. It is now a peaceful nation, easily accessible from South Africa with regular scheduled flights from Johannesburg to the capital, Maputo, or for those already on safari, a quick hop from Kruger National Park in South Africa. This truly remarkable country ticks all the boxes for honeymooners, divers, beach-lovers or for the world-weary seeking a heavenly escape from the rat race.
With 620 miles of pristine coastline, Mozambique is Africa’s prime beach spot. These ravishing beaches are dotted with historical seaside forts, colonial-era architecture and towns steeped in history, still bearing their Portuguese names. The waters between Mozambique and Madagascar are scattered with enchanting archipelagos which are the setting for a small number of top notch lodges offering their guests ‘Crusoe-chic’ accommodation made from locally sourced materials and with creature comforts that are on a par with some of the most luxurious hotels in the world.
We have handpicked a selection of our favourite lodges across Mozambique, focusing on the coastline in the south, the tranquil and unspoilt Archipelagos of Bazaruto and Quirimbas and the regions of Nampula and Pemba in the north-east of the country. While it may be on your agenda to just sit back and soak up your own private paradise, for those after something a little more active, there are a host of other things to do including scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing, historical and cultural tours.
