Camping in Mozambique

With pearly white beaches and azure waters, Mozambique offers some of the most marine rich coastlines in Southern Africa. The primary attraction is diving or snorkelling at some of the many reefs along its shores including the small islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago. Having struggled for many years, this breathtaking country is on the rise offering its visitors the opportunity to experience its turquoise beaches and mingle with its open and caring people at the local markets.

With a population of just over 19 million residents and an official language of Portuguese, these locals will accept you with open arms and show you what their beautiful country has to offer. The dry season brings about pleasant temperatures and runs from May to November, with the wet season running from December to April bringing along hot and humid days with rain.

With its Mediterranean-style architecture, Maputo claims the title of being Mozambique's capital city. Not to be missed is the massive municipal market where local woman vends an array of seafood and spices. Maputo's former name was Louren'o Marques, which was the name of the Portuguese sailor who landed here in 1544.

Mozambique has a wide variety of activities on offer, which will allow you to soak up the sun, get your feet wet and test your bartering skills. Activities include scuba diving, kayaking the warm Indian Ocean, surfing, dhow trips and many more.
