Formerly known as Portuguese East Africa, Mozambique was a Portuguese colony for over 400 years until 1975. The cultural legacy is deep, in architecture, food, language and cultural habits. The over 2500 kilometre warm water, Indian Ocean coast line dominates the lodge and tourism industry. This is unsurprising. The waters are picture postcard turquoise blue accompanied by pure, white sandy beaches.
The safari parks are only beginning to re-establish themselves after a destructive civil war with the forgotten Eden of Gorongosa National Park high on the list to visit.
The cooler dry months of April to September are best for wildlife viewing and temperate weather conditions. November to December is normally best for birding activities. The summer months of December to April can be extremely humid but this in general "peak season" for those who want to relax on the sun soaked beaches of Mozambique.
