About Mozambique

A relatively new destination in the list of exotic holiday destinations, Mozambique is a breathtaking destination with virgin sandy beaches and expanses of the blue ocean that flows like poetry from nature’s wonders. At lushescapes, we believe that such pristine beauty must be explored to the fullest with a small yet tasteful selection of luxury holiday resorts and hotels. There are numerous activities that one can engage in while in the magical Mozambique. It offers stunning beaches, excellent diving facilities and mystic offshore islands to discover. Go snorkelling around the Bazaruto Archipelago, sail on a dhow through mangrove channels or laze under the palms in the Quirimbas Archipelago.

Another striking feature about the place is the warm hospitality of the people and the interesting places to visit when here. Wander along traditionally cobbled streets past stately colonial-era buildings on Ilha de Mocambique or take an off-beat safari in the wilds of Gorongosa National Park. For those who want to taste the flavours of daily life of the locals there, sip a cafe espresso at one of Maputo's lively sidewalk cafes or a customary caipirinha at one of its jazz bars, watch the silversmiths at work on Ibo Island or dance to the country's unconventional marrabenta music. With an upbeat atmosphere, overflowing markets and a 2500km coastline waiting to be discovered - Mozambique is the perfect new holiday destination awaiting you. The picturesque coastal panoramas and sense of space makes this place a true paradise on earth.
