Description

Long stretches of coastline, off-the-boat-fresh seafood, tropical weather, friendly locals and rich African culture add up to one brag-worthy vacation in Mozambique. Extensive coral reefs make diving, fishing, and snorkeling a spectacular experience. While you may be tempted to spend all of your time in the warm turquoise water of the Indian Ocean, the land has a lot to offer, as well. Biking and hiking provide glimpses into exotic indigenous plants and charming indigenous culture. City life in Mozambique's capital-Maputo-is vibrant with life. Restaurants, cafes, jazz clubs, shopping-the possibilities are endless.

The Smiling country

08/31/13
Moçambique is the country where everyone smiles, everyone is curious about you, offers you the best they have. And don't have. A coun try where you will feel like home. A country where you will feel alive.
See whales by the beaches. Travel in the "chapas", the typical transportation. Absorb the smell of the red sand and see the best sunset in the world. You will fin you real smile here...
