Mozambique Safaris Overview
Mozambique is becoming known for beaches and scuba diving. There are pristine islands delivering the dream settings of near deserted islands with gorgeous beaches, turquoise waters and almost no people. The diving and snorkeling is equally impressive with excellent reefs and diverse marine communities. Fortunately Mozambique has a coastline that stretches for over 1,500 miles, almost double the length of California (840 miles) and runs from a border with South Africa in the south all the way to Tanzania in the north making it a convenient beach addition to both East and Southern Africa safaris. In the Southern half of Mozambique there is the paradise of the Bazaruto Archipelago while the north has the incredible Quirimbas Archipelago. Both areas have astounding islands with supreme marine environs.
For safari Mozambique is a recovering destination that receives very low density tourism. The Niassa Reserve in the far north is one of the largest protected areas on the continent and has large populations of many species. I rate this as one of the best sites for pioneering new safari frontiers. Gorongosa National Park is another potential safari destination. It suffered great wildlife losses during war times but restoration efforts are well under way and this park deserves to be watched as a potential up-and-coming destination.
