A brutal paradise

AdvantagesUnderexplored, Stunning scenery, cheap

Disadvantagesdangerous, difficult travel conditions

"Mozambique is one of the poorest nations on earth and has been through the destruction of a civil war. The result, as the country has opened up to tourism and holiday makers is that it is dirt cheap, underdeveloped, ehchanting, beautiful, tranquil and dangerous. I explored Mozambique with backpack. Well appointed hotels and organised tours are near non-existant and Mozambique is a country which needs to be explored rather than simply visited. The ..." Read review

The low down on Ponta do Oura and Ponta Molangane

AdvantagesFriendly people, great diving and lost of nothing to do!

DisadvantagesLost of nothing to do if you aren't into diving, vegetating and socializing

"As a keen diver we frequent Ponta do Oura and Ponta Molangane in Mozambique on a regular basis. Although there are “better” diving spots in Mozambique, if you’re looking for value for money accommodation, good service and a pleasant diving experience, Ponta do Oura and Ponta Molangane are the places to go. Currency and exchange ================== The South African Rand is a readily accepted form of payment and this can be very useful when purchasing ..." Read review

Playing chicken in Africa - a traveller's tale

AdvantagesFabulous country, nice people, great beaches

DisadvantagesNot a good place to be a chicken

CIRCUMSTANCES ********************** We were travelling with The Adventure Company (previously known as Travelbag Adventures) last July on ..." Read review

Mozambique - Recommendation

AdvantagesLovely Country and surrounding area

Disadvantagesneed to research the trip well

"I recently went to Mozambique more by accident than anything else and was amazed by the vibrancy of a country recovering from a civil war. There is a hope and optimism than is contagious. This allied to a lovely natural country make it a fantastic place to stay. Short drives to the Kruger National Park in South Africa and to Swaziland make Maputo a great base for discovering the southeast of Africa. There are still some troubles in the area so read ..."

Living in Mozambique

AdvantagesAmaizingly beautiful

DisadvantagesVery hot in summer time and the language

"We've been living in Mozambique for the last 10 years and I can honestly say that it has been the best years of my life. Being an expat in this country is not always easy since you have to be careful with the police and some of the locals always trying to get something for free. When we first arrived here from Johannesburg I was scared and worried and I thought to myself, "my gosh what were you thinking", making this place your home. But amazingly, ..." Read review
