Mozambique is a wonderful, under-discovered tourist destination. Discovered by Vasco da Gama in 1498, it was a Portuguese colony for almost 500 years, becoming independent in 1975. Now, with civil strife a thing of the past, more and more travellers are seeking cheap flights to Mozambique to take in all of its bounty.
With 2,500km of coastline on the Indian Ocean, the turquoise waters are just heaven for diving, snorkelling, fishing and sailing.
Bustling Maputo, the capital, has a Mediterranean/African vibe with colonial-era buildings, botanical gardens, and an art museum. The colonial era capital was Ilha de Mozambique, a tiny island and Unesco World Heritage site. Reached by bridge from the mainland, it has a mix of Portuguese and Muslim architecture, and fort that dates back to 1522.
For barefoot luxury, head to the Quirimbas archipelago in Northern Mozambique. A string of 32 coral islands teeming with marine life, the southernmost 11 are included in the Quirimbas National Park. Quirimba Island with its sugar-soft and palm-fringed beaches is the place to go for a secluded and exclusive holiday.
To the south, the Bazaruto Archipelago is a protected national park; five islands with no tourist infrastructure, just as nature intended.
The rainy season runs from October to March, during which coastal Mozambique is warmer and less humid than the inland areas. The dry season is from April to September. This is the most popular (and expensive) time to visit Mozambique. Temperatures average 31 degrees.
May to October is the dry season. The weather is cooler and drier with temperatures in the mid-20s. Our summer – June, July and August – are Mozambique’s coolest months. This is the most popular time for travellers to seek Mozambique flights to go on safari as the animals gather around the water holes then.
The rainy season lasts from November to April. The weather during this time is hot (temperatures in the mid-30s) and it is humid.
