Mozambique Partners


Mozambique, with its diverse history, is home to a fascinating blend of Arab traders, descendants of Portuguese colonialists and various African groups, including North African tribal peoples. Although there are as many as 17 ethnic languages spoken in this culturally rich destination, Portuguese is the official language of the country. Dip into the outstanding seafood on offer including the famous Mozambiquan prawns- they are usually served with peri-peri sauce and enjoyed with a local beer- and are addictive!


Most of the country’s attractions are located along the coastline or tucked away on islands such as those of the unique Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos. The snorkeling and diving experiences on offer in these unspoiled, beautiful waters, with their extensive coral reefs, are world-renowned. More than 1,200 species of fish have been identified in the coastal waters off of Mozambique. The subtropical to tropical climate of the country is caused by the warm Indian Ocean current flowing south from the Equator and the altitude of the Mozambiquan Plateau. The temperatures increase as you move further north up the coastline.
