Vasco Da Gama Visited Mozambique in 1498 but this ex-Portuguese Colony is still under the radar for tourism. The traditional dhows plying the azure seas are a left-over from the Arab slave trade and ancient European looking mansions and avenues add to the interesting mix of culture and spirit.
Visit Mozambique for its hotspot of uniqueness wherever you look and these are just the Top 5 Reasons why you should not miss out on visiting before the crowds get there….
1. Go on Ocean Safari to Snorkel with Whale Sharks
Hop on a boat and search for the biggest fish in the ocean sunning themselves near the surface, then gently glide in the water to just be astounded by their size and seeming gentleness. Giant Manta Rays are seen on occasion as well.
2. New Short Direct Flight Combines South Africa’s Best Safari Region with Mozambique’s’ Best Beaches
With just over an hour direct flight you can now combine your safari at Kruger National Park with lazing on a tropical beach in the Indian Ocean. Praia De Tofo is the perfect sleepy little fishing village to get away from it all in a superb boutique hotel. Just another short hop further along the coast you can connect with the Bazaruto Archipelago, a jewel like string of islands and marine park ideal for snorkeling and diving.
3. Eat the Best Tasting and Freshest Prawns and Seafood you have Probably Ever Eaten
Buy your seafood fresh from the fisherman in the colorful market near the beach and steam your prawns in water from the ocean. It produces a taste that is hard to describe and never to be forgotten. Dip in spicy piri piri sauce and devour with fresh bread rolls, both traditional Portuguese staple.
4. Get to Undiscovered, Endless Beaches Before the Crowds Do
How far do you like to stroll on golden sands? Infinite is basically the option and the only one you might meet is the odd fisherman or locals boarding a boat near the village.
5. Take Advantage of a Surreal Exchange Rate to The US Dollar
Right now 1 US$ buys you 65 Mozambiquen metical, a year ago 1 US$ got you 35 metical! Prices for imported goods have increased but the value is still there.
So what are you waiting for? Visit Mozambique as soon as you can!
