White Sands, Azure Waters, Untamed Wilderness
A perfect ending to an African safari. Stretching along the Indian Ocean from South Africa to Tanzania, Mozambique has over 1,530 miles of dazzling shoreline, as well as untamed wilderness, and fascinating history.
Best Suited to Which Type of Travelers:
Active travelers, history and culture buffs, along with beach goers and seekers of relaxation will find Mozambique a perfect choice. And safari goers can enjoy a game drive while there, too.
We Recommend These Experiences:
•Enjoy an 0ff-the-beaten track safari in Gorongosa National Park, one of Africa’s original safari destinations boasting large numbers of hippos, lions, and elephants. • Relax on one of the spectacular mainland beaches or head offshore to Bazaruto Archipelago made up of 5 islands including Benguerra, or one of the many other small island paradises that sit just off the coast to enjoy everything from barefoot luxury to the ultimate in beach elegance. • Big game fish in Mozambique’s deep channels, considered some of the best waters for marlin and sailfish in the world. • Experience world-class snorkeling and diving in the Quirimbas archipelagos, the largest protected marine area in Africa, and closer to East Africa. • Learn about Mozambique’s fascinating history, including tales of pirates, gold and ivory traders, and more.

Jan + Feb + Mar + Apr ++ May ++ Jun +++ Jul +++ Aug +++ Sep +++ Oct +++ Nov ++ Dec +
+ Dec, Jan, Feb, March
Most rains fall during this period. The country broadly follows a southern African weather pattern. It can get uncomfortably humid. (The rains last a few weeks longer in the north.)
++ April - May
Rains subside, the sun comes out, and the humidity drops – better weather spreads gradually from the south to the north.
+++ June to October
The dry season, with often perfect tropical weather: clear skies, plenty of sun and almost no rain. This is the best time for most people to visit Mozambique. Although still tropical, June, July and August are Mozambique's coolest months; you'll need a light duvet at night, even though the temperature reaches over 86°F by day. September and October remain dry as daytime temperatures climb, though it cools down a lot at night.
A less predictable month of transition. Sometimes rains start, although many days remain sunny and hot. The rains generally start earlier in the north.
* Mozambique has a relatively low annual rainfall – and a great deal of protection from tropical storms and cyclones
