Mozambique

Mozambique, on the East Coast of Southern Africa, has come out of a two decade civil war (which ended in 1992) with style. Maputo is a cosmopolitan African capital packed with sidewalk cafes and nightspots, while miles of beaches and tall mountain peaks inland are some of Mother Nature’s attractions. National parks like Gorongosa offer safari ... Read more
opportunities, while the Bazaruto Archipelago is a great way to encounter marine life, through a snorkeling mask. The cuisine exhibits a Portuguese influence left by the colonists, with accents like spicy piri piri sauce, appropriate for a country with a pungent culture and history like Mozambique.

Just 9 seafront villas pepper Azura Quilalea private island, the preferred retreat of Anne, Princess Royal. The lush oasis is a globule in the coral-filled Quirimbas marine sanctuary. World-class diving sites and snorkeling straight off island beaches alongside humpback whales, dolphins and nesting turtles, enhance the desert island experience. Surrounding nature is dense with baobab and frangipani; an idyll for kayaking. Mozambique offers scenes of serenity with panoramic lunar landscapes and unpolluted night skies studded with entire starry constellations

Many visitors to Southern Africa don't get any further than South Africa itself, and that's a shame, when Mozambique -- with its stunning beaches, fabulous nightlife, and excellent food -- is just across the border. With a tropical blend of African, Portuguese, Arabic and Indian cultures, the country has some of the loveliest and most deserted stretches of sand in Southern Africa (Tofo, Vilankulo, Pemba, the Quirimbas), and astounding water activites, from swimming with whale-sharks and dolphins to snorkelling and diving rich coral drop-offs and shipwrecks. The crumbling colonial towns of Ibo and Ilha de Mozambique are each fantastic, and you can find enough cheap seafood here to satisfy the most religious pescatarian. Come to dance, come to dive, come to eat -- it's an Africa apart, and you may find it's your favorite place of all.
