Five Day Mozambique Island Getaway

Getting There

Johannesburg (South Africa) or Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) would be your gateway into Mozambique from outside of Africa. You can get a flight to Maputo from these entry points. Linhas Aereas de Mocambique offer flights from Johannesburg and Dar es Salaam to Maputo, other airlines that service this route is South African Airways.

Land & water
Main entry points into Mozambique from other African Countries include Malawi (Zobue and Ilala ferry), South Africa (Ressano Garcia), Swaziland (Namaacha), Tanzania (Mocimboa da Praia), Zambia (Cassacatiza and Chanida) and Zimbabwe (Nyamapanda and Machinpanda).

When to Go

From June to November the weather is cool and dry. This is the best time to visit Mozambique as during the rainy season you could get stuck somewhere due to flooding which makes the roads impossible to pass.

Highlights not to Miss

Ponta D'Ouro & Ponta Malongane
Ponta D'Ouro is a popular destination and most commonly a first stop over for most visitors to Mozambique. The beaches are long, wide and usually deserted once away from the town area. There is abundant sea life like dolphins, whale sharks and whales (usually spotted from July to November). North of Ponta d'Ouro is Malongane with endless coastline and vegetated dunes. Activities along the coast include diving and dolphin tours. They both lie about 120 km south of Maputo.

Bazaruto Archipelago
The archipelago is as close as you will get to a tropical paradise. It consists of five main islands - Magaruque, Benguera, Santa Carolina, Bazaruto and Bangue. Here you will see the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean with sandy beaches and abundant birdlife. You can enjoy diving and snorkeling.

Ilha de Mocambique
Mozambique Island is about 3 km off the mainland in the north. In the 15th century it was the most important boat building center and a trading settlement with ties to Madagascar, Persia and Arabia. The island was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1991 and there is a lot of rehabilitation going on. It is partly a ghost town and part an active community.

Quirimbas Archipelago
This archipelago is a string of about a dozen islands and islets along the coastline between Pemba and the Rovuma River. The best known of the islands is Ibo and is the second most important town in Mozambique after Ilha de Mocambique. This almost surreal place is fascinating with wide streets lined with dilapidated villas and moss-covered buildings. Other islands include Quirimba which is known for its silversmiths.
