This week we visit: Mozambique
Mozambique has had its share of misfortunes, but more recently, things have been looking up for this Southeastern African country and people are once again discovering what a mesmerizing tourist destination it truly is. Today, we will be talking about the places in Mozambique that you simply must experience.
Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park is a national park that is in its earliest infancy at the moment and which encompasses five different national parks and sanctuaries in Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe. You can visit it today and experience one of the largest and most diverse national parks in all of Africa. If you get to visit only one African national park in your life, make it this one.
You should definitely check out a tiny village called the Ponta d’Ouru, very popular with people from South Africa as well. The village has its charms, but the reason why people go there is for the diving. It is one of the premiere destinations in the world for people who wish to swim and dive with dolphins. Also, the seafood that you will eat there is just insanely fresh and delicious.
Lago Niassa (also known as Lake Malawi and Lake Nyasa) is an African Great Lake shared by Mozambique, Malawi and Tanzania and is the ninth largest lake in the world. It is home to more species of fish than any other lake and there are so many locales on its shores that you simply have to see it.
You should also spend a few days in Maputo, the country’s capital and one of the most vibrant African cities. It has a number of historic buildings and the food scene is just incredible. It also boasts a great nightlife. Just off the shores of Maputo is the Inhaca island which boasts some of the finest beaches in this part of Africa.
