A holiday means something different to everyone. Some may classify their perfect holiday as a trip to the bush, while others may prioritise the beach for their getaway. Mozambique is able to offer anything to suit the tastes of their visitors – history, bush and beach, there is something for everyone. Mozambique is country situated in east Africa that runs along the coastline of the Indian Ocean, and is known for its delectable seafood, craft-minded people, traditional marimba bands and most importantly, flawless beaches.
