Mozambique Holidays

Discover incredible beaches on coastlines you never knew existed in the relatively undiscovered luxury destination of Mozambique.

Relax on the Robinson Crusoe style islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago for an off-the-beaten-track holiday, which is a paradise for honeymooners, or combine a beach break with South Africa’s Kruger National Park; Mozambique is a wonderful blend of everything that’s great about Africa and the perfect place to get away from the crowds. Why not Indulge your inner explorer, your romantic side or take the whole family away for something a little bit different?

There are top-class resorts in the baking southern hemisphere sun ready to meet your needs, while it’s also a superb destination for exploring deep under the water on a scuba diving trip, or staying close to the surface to snorkel among brightly coloured tropical fish. Whether you're looking for beach or wildlife or a bit of both, we have it covered in Mozambique and if you wish to explore further, then a multi centre holiday combining Tanzania, Kenya or South Africa can be tailor made to suit your personal needs.

    Gorongosa National Park

    Some people call the Gorongosa National Park the ‘Serengeti of the South’ and rightly so. But bigger doesn’t always mean better – yes, you’re going to spot the Big Five, but some of the most fascinating creatures you’ll spot here are members of the insect world, including dung beetles, ants, katydids, and praying mantis.
