Mozambique Travel Extension: Mozambique Island

Extend any safari with three to seven days enjoying the waters and lands around Mozambique Island, off the mainland coast in the Indian Ocean. Also known as Ilha de Moçambique, this coral island has a rich history as the country’s former capital—and it holds an equal wealth of natural attractions.

Whale watching hits its peak each August through November, while snorkeling and scuba diving bring delightful discoveries year-round. Both hard and soft corals abound here, as well as a plethora of dolphins and polychromatic fish. Canoeing at high tide is an ideal way to encounter mangrove crabs, birds—Mozambique boasts 740 species—and a plenitude of other shore animals.

Tour the centuries-old Portuguese buildings of Ilha de Moçambique and remnants of Arab settlements. Learn how to sail the Mozambican dhow or prepare traditional dishes. Visit a local community and, if you dare, sample the local delicacy: sea urchins covered in sharp spines.

Let these photos whet your appetite for Mozambique travel!
