Unspoiled Paradise: Mozambique Beaches

March 22, 2010  By: Africa Adventure Consultants

Mozambique is a country that few people talk about when considering a trip to Africa. For sheer numbers of large animals, it is overshadowed by its neighbors, Tanzania, South Africa, and Zambia. Yet it does have Gorongosa National Park, which offers unique walking and fly-in safari opportunities and a chance to see the rare Gorongosa lion. If you are in the Denver area, check out our Beers and Safaris Event on March 26 to see a sneak preview of an upcoming National Geographic special on Gorongosa.

What Mozambique also has is unspoiled, brilliant white-sand beaches. The Bazaruto Archipelago lacks the crowds of more popular beach destinations and is largely undeveloped. Here you can walk on the beach for miles without disturbance, while the warm, clear blue waters offering excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities.

It is easy to add a Mozambique Beach Holiday to most of our trips in southern Africa. Our five-day beach holiday begins and ends out of Johannesburg, and you have your choice of two levels of accommodations: the deluxe Indigo Bay Resort on Bazaruto Island, or the luxury Benguerra Lodge on Benguerra Island. Both feature a full range of activities, or you can simply relax on the beach and enjoy wonderfully prepared meals featuring local seafood such as prawns, crab, and crayfish.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of?
