Picture a thousand-mile stretch of nearly unbroken tropical beach, a vast highland plateau with stunning mountain vistas and a collection of deep, expansive lakes that harbor a wealth of freshwater fish and semi-aquatic animals.
Now imagine that all of these places - and many more - are contained within a stable political entity that's roughly the size of Turkey. When you visit Mozambique, you peer in on a nearly forgotten world that showcases the very best of the African continent in an unpretentious, highly authentic package.
Mozambique's landscape only hints at the rich culture and history that unites its citizens. From the street markets of Maputo to the bush communities near the Niassa Reserve, every corner of this verdant country reveals new surprises. For visitors who wish to leave civilization behind and experience truly untrammeled natural environments, Mozambique hosts several comprehensive ecological reserves as well as two Indian Ocean archipelagos that contain thousands of endemic plant and animal species.
Niassa Reserve: Located in Mozambique's semi-arid northeast, the Niassa Reserve is a premier destination for wildlife enthusiasts. While charismatic residents like elephants are responsible for getting visitors in the door, Niassa has a stunning collection of lesser-known plants and animals as well. Take a guided safari through the bush to spot species that you'd never see back home. At night, enjoy a sunset cocktail from the west-facing deck of your well-appointed lodge. For an added bonus, head west to the shores of vast Lake Niassa and dive for cichlids in its crystal-blue waters.
Quirimbas Archipelago: Located just off the country's northeastern shore, the Quirimbas Archipelago can adequately be described as a "tropical paradise." Its virtually unoccupied beaches offer sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, and the swaying palms that populate its hardier soils appear to wave away the concerns of the modern world. Quirimbas also has a rich history: The Medjumbe Lighthouse stands as one of the planet's shortest-lived lighthouses. The land portion of Quirimbas National Park has an active population of lions.
Baziruto Archipelago: Several hundred miles to the south of Quirimbas, Baziruto Archipelago showcases an entirely different set of ecosystems. These sedimentary islands feature an active dune system, a tropical savanna that supports multiple game species and a lush aquatic zone that's popular with sport fishermen.
After a few days of recharging amid the swaying vegetation and blue-green waters of these islands, head south to cosmopolitan Maputo and sample the handmade crafts, fabrics and furniture at its bustling street market. Reward yourself with a savory bowl of fish stew and a side of spiced rice or cornmeal dough.
Southern National Parks: To the north and west of Maputo and Baziruto, several extensive game reserves give visitors a quintessentially African experience. Limpopo National Park borders South Africa's Kruger National Park and hosts elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes and other big game animals. At nearby Banhine National Park, visitors can catch glimpses of ostriches and warthogs as well as novel species like African lungfish. If you're up for a safari through the park's scrubby savannas, you're virtually guaranteed to catch a glimpse of something you've never seen before.
Best Time To Visit:
Mozambique has a tropical wet-dry climate with two distinct seasons. The rainy season's soaking rains tend to be overwhelming for unaccustomed travelers and often result in road or site closures, so it's preferable to visit during the dry season. In the north, the dry period runs from May through November. In the south, it stretches from April through October. During the dry months, both regions enjoy warm temperatures and abundant sunshine. Although it never gets properly cold in Mozambique, heat-sensitive travelers may wish to confine their travels to the "cool" months of July and August. Since Mozambique remains a well-kept secret, crowds rarely if ever interfere with travelers' activities.
