Mozambique is home to miles of uninterrupted white sand. Best of all, visitors can enjoy it without feeling the pressures of tourism that are sadly found at other more popular stretches of the African coast. Travellers are so few and far between that the local residents are both interested and happy to speak about their culture with those taking a trip. They seem refreshingly unconscious of the European/African divide than regions such as The Gambia – and less keen to extort money from ‘rich’ outsiders at every opportunity.
Nature of the Tour:
This trip offers you a crossroads of civilizations, cultures and landscapes, influenced from the early days by nomadic tribes, Arab readers, European colonials, torn apart by civil wars. With new found peace, and a fast growing economy recently reopened to tourism, Southern and Eastern Africa offers the explorer a wealth of treasures in the form of untouched wilderness areas, natural beauty, deserted beaches and unique cultural heritage.
