When Portuguese explorers reached Mozambique in 1498, Arab trading settlements had already existed along the coast and outlying islands for some centuries, and Portuguese trading posts and forts became regular ports of call on the new route to the east. These influences have by now diminished, with the rich welcoming Mozambican culture dominant. Take a long walk on a far-flung sandbar at sunset, enjoy mouth-watering seafood fresh from the sea, and swim in the warm tropical ocean, all the while keeping an eye out for the rare dugong.
Options for luxury travel in Mozambique include the northern Quirimbas Archipelago for private, highly luxurious stays. The southern Bazaruto Archipelago is a cluster of exceptionally beautiful islands that are home to high-end accommodations, world-class diving and rewarding conservation efforts. The country’s national parks and game reserves are being re-stocked and returned to their former glory and beckon discovery. An extraordinary country – reinvented.
