Tourism in Mozambique
Mozambique’s extensive coastline offers many beautiful beaches and a tropical climate. Its biodiversity and diverse wildlife that includes lions, leopards, elephants, hippopotami, buffaloes, antelopes, giraffe, impalas, crocodiles and diverse species of monkey draw many nature lovers to the country. The Niassa Reserve is the largest conservation area in Mozambique. The striking coral reefs make water sports and marine wildlife a popular attraction, especially for those visiting the many small islands off the mainland. Beach and bush camping is another popular activity, but for the adventurous hiker, the lush green mountains can be just as appealing. The country has many majestic rivers as well as the quiet seduction of natural hot springs. Visitors can also visit Lake Niassa, the third largest lake in Africa. The unique blend of African, Arabic and Portuguese cultural influences makes visiting Mozambique unlike any other African experience.
