Among the very best holiday destinations in Africa, Mozambique is a nation in southeastern Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest. The magnificent coastlines and lovely offshore islands are absolutely a must-see!
The tropical climate, including 2 periods, make Mozambique a tourist-friendly destination year-round. Some activities that exist consist of snorkelling around locations such as Bazaruto Island chain, taking safari journeys with the Gorgonsa National forest, roaming along the streets of Ilha de Mocambique, relaxing under the palms at Azura Quilalea Lodge and almost anywhere along the 2500km shoreline, dancing to the nation’s world-renowned marrabenta, fado, samba, bossa nova, maxixe (with origins from Maxixe), and kizomba music.
The music in Mozambique is definitely one of the even more culturally rich experiences available, and can serve many people functions, be it religious expression and even conventional ceremonies. Many of the instruments are handmade, and include drums made from wood and animal skin(the Lupembe) and the Marimba which is related to the Xylophone. The marimba is a popular instrument with the Chopi southern central coastline who are well-known for their musical skill and dance.
Now that the dark times of Mozambique’s history (inaccessibility due to a guerrilla war) are a thing of the past, the country is open once again for tourists to take pleasure in the awesome sights and experience a rich African culture.
Southern Mozambique is an area much more matched to tamer travelers, with excellent transportation paths and accommodation choices. Quick link on how to get there: www.bazarutoarchipelago.com/getting-there
Northern Mozambique is not for the faint of heart, and only tourists with actual sense of experience need to explore these wilds. The island lodges (I.E www.azura-quilalea-mozambiquetravel.com) , and sense of space make traversing this part of Mozambique among the more memorable times to be had.
