Mozambique Holidays

Everything that's great about Africa

Discover incredible beaches on coastlines you never knew existed in the relatively undiscovered luxury destination of Mozambique.

Relax on the Robinson Crusoe-style islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago for a blissful off-the-beaten-track holiday, which is a paradise for honeymooners, or combine a beach break with South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Mozambique is a wonderful blend of everything that’s great about Africa and the perfect place to get away from the crowds – it's the perfect location to challenge your inner explorer, indulge your romantic side or take the whole family away for something a little bit different. 

With top-class resorts in the baking southern hemisphere sun, Mozambique is also a superb destination for exploring deep under the water on a scuba diving trip, or staying close to the surface to snorkel among brightly coloured tropical fish. Whether you're looking for beach or wildlife or a combination of both, we have it covered in Mozambique and if you wish to explore further, then a multi centre holiday combining Tanzania, Kenya or South Africa can be tailor made to suit your aspirations.
