Top 5 Must Do's in Mozambique

Edit This

The top Mozambique must do’s in Southern Africa, are experiencing the breathtaking country.

Scuba Diving

This is the best spot to go for scuba diving due to its unique variety of marine life, crystal clear waters and untouched coral reefs that offer magnificent sights that will take your breath away. A place such as the Bazaruto archipelago is quite popular when it comes to viewing coral reefs that have not been tampered with. For those who have taken up scuba diving and snorkeling as a passionate hobby, a place like Inhambane is a paradise for you as you get the opportunity to view marine life such a the sting ray, sharks and the elegant creature like the whale. For those who would like to witness a spectacular event such as the migration of the humpback whales, the best time to do so is during the months of June to September. Another place that you can view whale sharks is the Inhaca Island and local boat operators can offer services for transportation for a small fee.

Fishing

Another Mozambique must do, is challenging fishing that can only be found in Mozambique, especially in the Guinjata Bay as well as the Mozambique Channel where the waters are quite deep. A fish caught in this region can weight up to 450 km, but fishermen are encouraged to only catch the fish then release it back to the water so as to preserve the fishes. Fishing is a fun sport and can be done as a family activity, and fly-fishing is very fun for the kids. 

Turtles in Ponta Mamoli

Just 25 km from the Kosi Bay, Ponta Mamoli gives tourists the chance of a life time to see turtles and also how turtles are nested. With species such as leatherback and loggerhead turtles tourists get the chance to view how the eggs are laid but this only happens between the month of November and March. The whole family can view this spectacular phenomenon whereby the female turtles crawl along the beaches during the night and dig holes where they lay the eggs then cover them with sand; it's truly a mind blowing experience.

Jardim Tunduru Botanical Gardens

While exploring the beautiful streets of Maputo be sure to visit the Jardim Tunduru Botanical Gardens. At the entrance of the garden guests are greeted with a statue of the first president of the republic of Mozambique, Samora Machel. Experience the sight offered by this garden while having a picnic with a loved one or with the family. Located within the garden are restaurants where you can enjoy refreshments and also there are tennis courts where children can play.

Bird Watching

For those who love bird watching this is the place to visit as it has over 600 bird species to be viewed. A place like the Bazaruto archipelago is the best place to see hundreds of birds.

These are some of the Mozambique must do's.
