A lush haven of quiet beaches and gently swaying palms, Mozambique is an exotic honeymoon destination off the beaten track. Immerse yourself in the African vibes of this culturally rich country, spending romance-filled days exploring the winding streets of historic towns or floating offshore on a graceful dhow (traditional sailboat).
Capital city Maputo offers a taste of history with its stunning colonial architecture. Navigate streets lined with colourful jacaranda trees and soak up the city’s lively atmosphere in a plethora of street side cafes. A little out of town is the paradise-like island of Macaneta where white sands and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean suggest long days reclining in the soul-soothing sun. Alternatively, make the 40km trip from Maputo to idyllic Inhaca Island where kaleidoscopic coral reefs make for adventures beneath the waves.
If you’re eager to see some of the local wildlife, a trip to Niassa Reserve is a must. In Mozambique’s rugged north, close to the border with Tanzania, this vast wildlife sanctuary is triple the size of the Serengeti and home to a wealth of flora and fauna. Take a safari with your special someone to see mighty African elephants, stampeding wildebeest, sleek leopards and more than 400 species of bird.
With sun-soaked coastlines, tranquil archipelagos and a nature-rich interior, Mozambique will take you beyond the usual boundaries of a post-wedding escape. Consult our talented honeymoon specialists for further information about this fascinating destination for your Africa honeymoon.
