Mozambique Travel Information

  • Overview
  • When to Travel
  • Map

Mozambique is fast emerging as one of the hottest travel destinations for the discerning traveller. It offers a long and beautiful coral-fringed coastline with translucent waters and some of the worlds best scuba diving opportunities. This coupled with increasing game safaris and the remnants of the old Portuguese outposts makes this is a must for those wishing to escape and experience the real Africa.

Whether you find yourself relaxing on a secluded beach, soaking up the rich culture or swimming the coral rich waters, Mozambique offers luxury, beauty and a responsible attitude towards the development and sustainability of its long term future.

Mozambique is a vast country – nearly four times larger than the UK, with each region offering its own unique attractions. In major cities and coastal regions you will find accommodation to suit all styles, budgets and tastes. Inland travel gets more rugged with the road network still under development and a small range of domestic flights, however these areas can offer authentic African safari experiences and an unforgettable insight into a traditional way of life long since forgotten in the Western World.

When you visit will largely depend on when you are available to travel, but if you have flexibility to choose then it becomes a matter of what you are looking for from your trip and the seasons affect both wildlife movements and your comfort level - both influencing factors in deciding when to travel.

Mozambique has two main seasons, one wet and the other dry, which divide the climatic year:

The wet season, from November to March, has a monthly average temperature of between 26°C (79°F) and 29°C (84°F) with cooler temperatures in the interior uplands.

The dry season lasts from April to October and has June and July temperatures averaging 18°C (64°F) to 20°C (68°F). The average annual rainfall is greatest (approximately 1422mm/56 inches) over the western hills and the central areas, and lowest in the Zambezi lowlands averaging 406 to 813mm (16 to 32 inches).

The Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos seldom gets cold, however, on some evenings during the winter months of June and July, a light jacket or pullover will be necessary.
