EPIC Mozambique

The “Pearl of the Indian Ocean”

Epic Mozambique Journeys


The ‘pearl of the Indian Ocean’, Mozambique is a south-eastern African nation that boasts 2 500 km (1 550 miles) of pristine coastline and beachfront on the mainland, with a string of beautiful and idyllic tropical islands, glittering like jewels in the warm, azure waters of the Indian Ocean.

In the Quirimbas Archipelago, a 250km stretch of coral islands, mangrove-covered Ibo Island has colonial-era ruins. A diving and snorkelling destination, as is Bazaruto Archipelago farther south, with reefs protecting rare marine life including dugongs.

Mozambiques’ rich traditions, cultural mix and vibe and – most of all – its opportunities for adventure put this enigmatic African country well off most travellers’ maps. But it has much to offer those who venture here. The warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean abound with shoals of colourful fish, well-preserved corals, remote archipelagos in the north, pounding surf in the south and graceful dhows with billowing sails. The capital Maputo offers colonial-style architecture while the surrounding land has vast tracks of bush populated with elephants, lions and birds galore.
