Last-minute ideas for MICE in Mozambique 

Year-end is fast-approaching, and if you’ve not yet locked in a location for your next team build or corporate get-together, don’t overlook Mozambique. 

“If you’re based in South Africa, Mozam is close enough to home, so there’s no need to put a massive dent in your company budget, says Natalie Tenzer-Silva, Director of Dana Tours.  

“The allure for MICE extends beyond its convenient location. Aside from being visa-free and only an hour’s flight from Joburg, we’ve got the infrastructure to host all types of events, with beach and bush add-ons and the most blissful weather.” 

If you’re ready to switch out those power suits for slops, sandals and sunnies, here are a few last-minute ideas for corporate events and conferences in Mozambique for 2022. 

Teambuilding activities galore

In Mozambique, businesses can partake in a bounty of beach and safari activities to encourage camaraderie between colleagues.   

“From snorkelling excursions to sunset cruises, jet-skiing, and kayaking, there is more than enough on the go to entice corporates to our coastline,” Natalie adds. “The magic of Macaneta Beach lies only 30 kilometres from Maputo. 

Delegates can also combine their beach time with various safari adventures and conservation initiatives at Gorongosa National Park. Alternatively, there’s the recently rebranded Maputo National Park — just a 90-minute drive from the capital of Maputo.  

“When it comes to teambuilding activities, we’ve got a long list of ideas for you to choose from. We can even arrange amazing races, potjie cook-offs and even something as off-beat as a karaoke evening.” 

Networking dinners and drinks

It’s a well-known fact that excellent dining experiences can help set the tone for corporate events and functions. Fortunately, Mozambique boasts its fair share of atmospheric locales serving flavourful fare.  

“From sunset cocktails at Dhow Café to Karaoke nights with good food at Treehouse Restaurant, you’ll find no shortage of venues to host fancy dinners, casual networking sessions or after-party celebrations,” says Natalie. 

“For something swanky, snap up a table at Memories Gastrobar in Maputo. South Beach also tops the list for outdoor lunches and parties but should you want to get your toes tapping, Kwetu often hosts live music.”  

The Dana team also runs immersive food tours in Maputo should you be looking to add in a a cultural element for your corporate teams. 

Accommodation and conferencing

Southern Sun Maputo

“Having operated within Mozambique for 20 years, we’ve developed strong ties with several hotels and conference venues,” Natalie explains.  

With its reputation for service excellence, the 269-roomed Southern Sun Maputo is a great place to start. Another fond favourite for business travellers is Raddison Blu, with its beachfront setting and nine well-equipped conference rooms. 

“Should you like to arrange your event further afield, we have a long list of beach-based resorts worth considering. One example is the iconic and eco-friendly Azura Benguerra,” she adds.
