Mozambique is located on the south­eastern coast of Africa, extending from Tanzania in the north, right down to South Africa. It went through a civil war from 1977 to 1992 and this left the country very fragile and the residence very weary of any visitors. The mood is changing in the tourist resorts where the locals have begun learning english and interacting with the visitors.

A perfect beach destination, the coastline bordering the Indian Ocean comprises over 2500km of fine white sandy beaches, but the main charm lies in the Bazaruto Archipelago in the south and the Quirimba Archipelago in the far north. These alluring picture postcard islands offer pristine sandy beaches, superb accommodation options and fantastic diving, snorkeling, fishing and watersports, perfect for honeymoons and post­safari retreats. Away from the coastline, Mozambique offers game viewing and bird watching in the Gorongosa National Park and the Niassa Reserve.

Between november till upto May in Tofu, you can go swimming with the whales, dolphins and manta rays. You can sit on the beach and watch the gigantic whales launch themselves into the sky.
