Hello and welcome to our dedicated Mozambique Safari site.

If you have travelled with us before you will know that we not only take pride in what we do, but how we do it. Each of our advisers has visited Africa on many occasions, staying in the majority of the camps we offer so that you can receive the best possible advice from first-hand experience.


We have been creating tailor-made safaris since 2006 and know how to get you the best for your time and money. Each of our itineraries are plotted on an interactive map allowing you to zoom in and see not only where you will be but points of interest dotted along the way.

We believe this is a game changer in safari planning and invite you to check out this example: 8 DAY: IBO ISLAND HOPPING

Please browse around our selection of camps and itineraries and get in touch as soon as you’re ready. See you on Safari!

We create journeys, not holidays. A journey is an immersive experience, one that changes how you view the world in general and the wild places of Africa in particular.

An Introduction to Mozambique

Situated on the east coast of Africa, this tropical paradise is blessed with 2500km of spectacular coastline. With its idyllic beaches fringed with palm trees and lapped by crystal clear waters brimming with a dazzling array of marine life, this enchanting African nation is an ideal adventure holiday destination, with an abundance of activities on offer such as snorkelling, sunset cruises, horse-riding, dolphin tours and world renowned scuba diving.

Mozambique’s two major centres, Maputo and Inhambane, offer an exotic kaleidoscope of art, music and delicious local food as well as a lively nightlife scene. Spend yours days immersing yourself in the fascinating local culture, marvelling at the impressive colonial architecture and interacting with the fabulously friendly local inhabitants.

Those seeking a more remote getaway can head for the isolated beaches of Benguerra Island; the historic Portuguese and Muslim architecture of Mozambique Island; or the outstanding wildlife of Gorongosa National Park. However you choose to spend your time in this exceptionally scenic destination you are likely to leave with a heavy heart and a burning desire to return time and time again.

Expert Safari Design

Designing a safari is an important part of the African journey. Given the diversity and immense topography of the continent, it is impossible to see everything in one trip or even a lifetime of return visits.

Combining destinations is the best way to discover the diverse wildlife species that thrive in different habitats. Our carefully selected camps and itineraries offer a multiplicity of species, scenery and activities and are thus easily combined to create the perfect journey.

Seasons vary between destinations, however for those seeking to view the birthing season of many animals within an abundant setting, or for birding enthusiasts, summer is generally the best time to travel. For those seeking drier landscapes and teeming herds around limited water resources, winter is the season.

Mozambiques's Top Destinations

Quirimbas Archipelago

The Quirimbas Archipelago consists of a magnificent chain of more than 25 coral islands, which escaped the 20th century with almost no development and home to some of the most unspoilt beaches and corals anywhere in the world, providing breath-taking views of the abundant array of the marine life that Mozambique has to offer. The area is renowned for its high quality dive sites, many with exceptional drop-offs.

Ilha de Mozambique

Ilha Da Mozambique is a UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Site and was the original capital of Portuguese East Africa. The island has numerous historical buildings which date to this time. Only half of the town is built from stone with the majority of the islands inhabitants living in reed house, mostly in Makuti town. In the 1960s the island was connected to the mainland by a 3km bridge. Although considered a cultural destination Mozambique Island also offers activities such as scuba diving, dhow and fishing trips.

Niassa National Reserve

Mozambique’s biggest conservation area and one of the largest on the continent, Niassa extends over an area twice the size of Wales. It protects an amazingly rich and varied wildlife population, including lion, leopard, antelope, elephant, warthogs, buffalo, hippo, wild dog, hyena and most notably, three endemic species – Niassa wildebeest, Boehm’s zebra, and Johnston’s impala.

Gorongosa National Park

The focus of a National Geographic film entitled ‘Africa’s Lost Eden’, the Gorongosa National Park – with its cobalt-blue lagoons, wide open savannah and forested mountains studded with waterfalls – is indeed an earthly paradise, nestled beneath the towering peak of Mount Gorongosa. Activities offered by the park include game drives, supervised game treks, waterfall hikes, sundowner excursions and birding safaris.

Bazaruto Archipelago

Tha Bazaruto Archipelago is a wonderful tropical island get away with numerous accommodation options and plenty of activities on offer.


This quaint seaside town, the capital of Imhambane Province, is known for its wide, almost land-locked bay and its beautiful but crumbling Portuguese architecture. Points of interest include the vibrant local market and the nearly two-century old Cathedral of our Lady of Concepti. Located within easy driving distance of Inhambane are the popular beach destinations of Barra, Tofu and Guinjata Bay, which offer excellent snorkelling, diving and fishing.


With its beautiful art décor architecture and its amazing setting on a hill overlooking Maputo Bay, Maputo was once the Riviera of Southern Africa. The old charm and African Portuguese mix in the people and the food are plain to see.
