Diving Holidays In Mozambique

For almost two decades, Mozambique's attractions were inaccessible. Those dark times are in the past, and Mozambique is one of Africa’s up-and-coming hot-spots, Mozambique's 2500km of coastline is waiting to be discovered. Stunning beaches, magical offshore islands and excellent diving. Sail on a dhow through mangrove channels, laze under the palms in a remote archipelago or join an off-beat safari in the wilds of Gorongosa National Park. 

In Inhambane Province, southern Mozambique, roads and transport links are good and accommodation options abound. For more adventure, head across the Zambezi into the wilds of northern Mozambique and Cabo Delgado Province, one of Africa’s last frontiers. Getting around here takes time, and money, but the paradisiacal coastal panoramas and sense of space make the journey a unique experience.

Diving Mozambique

Inhambane's diving is centred in two places, the Inhambane Peninsula and the Bazaruto Archipelago. Manta Rays and Whale Sharks abound in season and Humpback Whales migrate along the coastline. Vilanculos Bay is ideal for newly qiualified divers, just beyond the bay at the Bazaruto Archipelago the reefs are famed for being incredibly varied and are home to more than 2000 species of marine fish.

Cabo Delgado's diving is in two regions. The Quirimbas Archipelago, a largely unexplored chain of 32 Indian Ocean islands, are relatively unexplored and the diving unexpected. The walls of the Baixo do Pinda Peninsula are steep and deep, swept by ocean currents and speckled with wrecks.
