The pearl of the Indian Ocean, Mozambique boasts 2 500 km (1 550 miles) of pristine beachfront on the mainland, with a string of beautiful and idyllic tropical islands, glittering like jewels in the warm, azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Soft, white sand beaches lined with coconut palms stretch as far as the eye can see.
Mozambique has remained an exclusive Ecotourism destination as many of its islands and mainland beaches are isolated and secluded, offering travellers the ultimate escape.
There are no golf courses or shopping malls here, but the unspoiled natural beauty and rich marine life have pushed the country to the top of the list for honeymooners, scuba divers and water sports fanatics.
A Mozambique Ecotourism holiday is the perfect excuse to kick off your shoes, take off your watch and gear down to the slow pace of island life: swim, snorkel, laze in the sunshine or set sail on a sunset dhow cruise. When the mood takes you there are richly coloured coral reefs waiting to be explored on scuba diving trips, and the clear waters are world-renowned for big game fishing.
All our favourite beach Eco lodges sit right at the ocean's edge yet each has a unique character and appeal. For a Mozambique honeymoon we’d highly recommend our Quirimbas Ecotourism accommodation – choose between luxurious villas or romantic, thatched suites with virtually a whole island to yourselves – while our Bazaruto Eco lodges combine easily with the Kruger National Park, making them ideal for a safari and beach holiday.
Mozambique also pairs perfectly with the under-rated kwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa. Separated by the border, they both share the same subtropical climate, lush vegetation and kick-off-your-shoes atmosphere. The wildlife highlight in kwaZulu-Natal is Phinda Private Game Reserve where reclaimed farmland has over decades been painstakingly converted to indigenous bush. Phinda is a great combination for a Mozambique Ecotourism beach vacation.
Our Mozambique Eco tours & holidays are about more than just lazing on soft sandy beaches. Once one of Africa's top big game destinations, the country’s wild reserves are recovering rapidly and are becoming a top choice for off-the-beaten-track safaris. In fact, Mozambique’s flagship park – the beautiful and diverse Gorongosa National Park – was recently the subject of an award-winning National Geographic documentary Africa’s Lost Eden and it won't be long before Mozambique regains its reputation as both a game-viewing and beach holiday destination.
