Why you should visit Mozambique

Mozambique is situated on the south-eastern coast of Africa, bordering Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia to the north, Zimbabwe to the west, South Africa and Swaziland to the south and the Mozambique Channel to the east.


Within this tropical paradise, many bare-foot luxury hideaways wait to welcome you. Most of the off-shore islands and the lovely coastlines have remained untouched and unspoiled, and because of low-impact development, marine life has thrived. World-renowned scuba diving and snorkeling reveal an underwater wonderland, prolific numbers of whale shark, manta rays, dolphins, coral fish and reefs.


Mozambique is one of the great places to “get away from it all”. It not only offers miles of silver-sanded and palm fringed beaches of your dreams, but holidays for adventure seekers and water sports enthusiasts. Besides the unrivalled underwater world and all it has to entice you, the local culture in the major cities, Maputo and Inhambane invite you to enjoy their exotic art and music.


The locals are friendly, the fresh seafood is out of this world and the nightlife is humming. To ensure that you feel comfortable and at home, all our excursions to Mozambique involve luxury properties, recently upgraded and offering five star standards and service. For example, Benguerra Lodge and Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort and Spa, are just a taste of what you can expect. Our Asante consultants will happily advise you on this beautiful and undiscovered part of Africa.

When is the best time to visit

If you are visiting the abundance of beaches, bathing gear, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses are necessities. For most of the year, light clothing is suitable. For summer, December to February, loose-fitting clothing made from natural fibers will keep you comfortable, a light sweatshirt for the evening, light raincoat or umbrella and sun hat. In winter (June to August) pack some warmer clothes for chilly evenings.


When visiting game reserves, take sensible walking shoes, a hat and clothing in browns and greens to blend in with the bush. Long-sleeved shirts are advised for the evenings, for protection from mosquitoes. For the reef, you will require your snorkeling gear and rubber-soled or water shoe.

What to pack for your trip to Mozambique?



The ideal time to visit is between May and November, when Mozambique
experiences cooler, dryer weather with clear skies and plenty of sunshine. Daytime temperatures reach 28 C(82 F), but the interior can get cold at night. For those who don’t enjoy the heat, the months of June and July are coolest in the inland areas until mid-August when the temperatures start to rise again.


For a beach holiday in the south of the country, June to August can be cool, so September and October are preferable, while in the centre-north, mid-May to October are good months to visit. Between December and April is the rainy season which can mean washed-out roads and occasional flooding in the south and centre
