Largely untouched by tourism, Mozambique is Africa’s undiscovered jewel.
Mozambique is a melting pot of cultures and exotic influences, from early North African and Arab traders to Portuguese colonists who have all left their mark.
In Northern Mozambique the 32 island Quirimbas Archipelago that stretches from the coastal town of Pemba almost 400 kilometres up to Mozambique's northern border with Tanzania has to be one of the last undiscovered jewels of Africa. It is scattered with innumerable castaway beaches and is home to a large assortment of wildlife both onshore and surrounding its pristine coral reefs, the diversity of this marine sanctuary is exemplary.
Off the coast of southern Mozambique, just inside the Tropic of Cancer, lies the tropical paradise of the Bazaruto Archipelago. A mere 20 minute motor boat ride or sensational helicopter flight across the channel from the mainland town of Vilanculos are the five islands of the archipelago lying in the middle of a marine national park.
