Isn’t it about time that you step outdoors and re-connect with the planet? You don’t have to go far from home to spend some quality time with mother nature. With so much to see and appreciate in Mozambique, there is no doubt that your reconnection with nature should start right here…
Gorongosa National Park
Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park has an incredible history. Once ravaged by civil war, it has returned to its former wildlife glory and fast become a hotspot for those who want to step even closer into nature.
Bush and beach
Combine a visit to Gorongosa National Park with Ibo Island Lodge in the Quirimbas Archipelago. Well-known for its coral reefs and waters inhabited by dolphins, whales and endangered dugongs. Here, you can swim, fish, scuba, snorkel, SUP and kayak your way along its pristine beaches.
Take to the open seas to witness pods of migratory Southern Right and Humpback whales embark on their annual migration along the coast to mate and calve. Experience these ethereal mammals in all their glory, as they breach, lop-tail and fin-slap. This is a spectacle you won’t want to miss!
The team from Top Gear braved the untarred roads of Mozambique in one of their most recent episodes of the popular show, and if Jeremy and the gang succeed in inspiring you to take on your own Mozambique 4×4 road trip, speak to us to make sure you won’t end up head first in the mud.
Swim with whale sharks
Mozambique has one of the highest populations of whale sharks in the world, usually seen filter-feeding on krill near the Bazaruto Archipelago National Marine Park and Tofo Beach, just north of Maputo. As long as you are comfortable in the water and can snorkel, then swimming with these slow moving creatures is easy and safe.
Make Azura Benguerra your home away from home on Benguerra Island. It was the first eco-friendly resort in the country with its award winning villas hand-built from scratch by members of the local community. A modern design mixed with eco-friendly materials, solar power and eco-detergents in their laundry are small yet important steps in the right direction.Tags:Azura Benguerra, Gorongosa, Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique, Planet Earth, Whale sharks, whale watching
