Holiday in Mozambique On the islands of the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelago is endless, white beaches. The beaches are very clean. In the Quirimbas you have exclusive beaches. In the Bazaruto Archipelago are public beaches but they are rarely visited by the locals. The privilege that you maybe will have is when local fishermen deliver their fresh catches come to the hotel. Directly from the sea and on the board for lunchtime! Bazaruto Archipelago tides are very diverse. At low tide the water is extremely withdrawn. At high tide you can then swimming and snorkeling. In the Quirimbas the tide is not so extreme.

On safari in Mozambique Mozambique is no obvious country when one thinks of a safari. Yet in recent years, a beautiful development occurred. Large nature have been given protected status, so that the wild population has risen. The parks have a large surface area and thus the animals can evolve in their natural habitat. A safari in Mozambique offers something different than the big safari countries. Parks that are done in conjunction with a beach stay are Niassa Reserve and Gorongosa. The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park offers walking safaris and you combine it easily with a safari in hetKrugerpark in South Africa..

Mozambique has a tropical climate, with especially in the summer months (December to March), on the coast often oppressively high temperatures. At night it cools down mainly on the coast barely off. Inland, especially in the winter months (June to August) night pretty cool. In the higher regions around Nampula and Niassa is often something fresher. In southern Mozambique falls between October and March, the most rain. In the north begins and ends this about a month later. During that period, it is often at the end of the afternoon, during an hour or two pouring down. These showers regularly lead to significant flooding. Keep watching the local news in the rainy season.
