Mozambique

Travel tips for Mozambique TRAVEL TIPS – A diver's paradise, Mozambique stretches for two and a half thousand kilometres along Africa's southeast coast. To its north you'll find Tanzania; to its south: South Africa and Swaziland; and Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe to its west.

A low-lying plateau, Mozambique is broken up by sizeable rivers that flow into the Indian Ocean, the largest being the Zambezi, going through the country's centre. This country has a turbulent past, but the locals are putting it behind them and rebuilding their homeland at a remarkable pace.

There're lots to see, including stunning beaches and islands, charming colonial architecture, and colourful local cultures. It's a country where you can enjoy an unspoiled island oasis in total tranquillity, where you can wander through the markets collecting souvenirs or just take in the buzz around you.

Its pristine coastline, of which the world-renowned Bazaruto Archipelago is a part, is one of the few unexplored pleasures of the Indian Ocean. With over a thousand species of marine life, the snorkelling and diving is rated amongst the best in the world.

Between May and November is the best time to visit. Both rainfall and temperatures are at their lowest over this period. If you don't mind intense heat, then you might also enjoy visiting Mozambique during the early part of the warmer, rainy season, which is from November to February. During the months of February to April roads may become impassable and flooding is common in the southern and central regions
