Mozambique is a southern African nation whose long Indian Ocean coastline is dotted with popular beaches like Tofo, as well as offshore marine parks. In the Quirimbas Archipelago, a 250km stretch of coral islands, mangrove-covered Ibo Island has colonial-era ruins surviving from a period of Portuguese rule.
This country is quite different from the tourist destinations from the rest of the world because other destinations aim at offering luxury and recreation only but here a visitor can sense a blend of traditional and modern culture along with the recreation and most of all the closeness to the mother nature. This land is blessed with all sort of natural heritages which other countries may not match to the expectation of the tourists to find all experiences at one land. African culture is said to be one of the oldest culture and civilizations of the world and people of Mozambique know what they can offer to their guests in the best possible ways.
With a great climate, pristine beaches and a slowly burgeoning conservation industry, Mozambique is seen as a great place to get away and just relax. The country is the kind of place you go to if you are looking to unwind and get back to the basics in life.
