10. Bazaruto Archipelago
Starting off on our list is Bazaruto Archipelago located near the city of Vilankulo. Made up of six islands which are the islands of Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Banque, Santa Carolina and Shell, there’s nothing quite like the Bazaruto Archipelago. A speckling of elongated isles in the Indian Ocean, they are a patchwork of shimmering, aquamarine seas and coral gardens, windblown sand dunes and ochre-hued coastal hills that come peppered with scrub and swaying coconut palm groves.The largest island of the area Bazaruto, is a place of open sandy bays patrolled by galumphing dugong, while the inland is carved through by karst hills and boulder stones. A little to the south and you’ll find the paradisiacal reaches of the Ilha de Benguerra, where luxurious honeymoon hotels poke above the white sands in a medley of swinging hammocks and sunning decks.
Mozambique’s beautiful capital is a lesson in all things colonial. It was raised to the place of first city after the Portuguese drained the surrounding swampland.Then it was just a case of building the grand, imperial like-railway station, the pretty Casa do Ferro courtesy of one Gustav Eiffel and rings of wide boulevards peppered with palm trees a la the Algarve.Many turn-of-the-century buildings can be found in the downtown Jacaranda-lined Bahia neighborhood. The bronze-domed CFM Railway Station, for example, was completed in 1916. The Baixa also has an expansive Municipal Market. It’s near the Parka da Independence plaza, site of the neoclassical city hall. Once you find yourself in Maputo, you’ve got yourself a small enclave of Europe in Africa. However, Maputo has long been reclaimed by the locals here, and today the town is known for its enthralling bazaars that pulse with chatter and burst with East African batik, its raucous hip hop bars, and that mouthwatering fusion of Keralan and Arabic foods in the eateries.
Pemba crowns the tip of its very own peninsular on the coastal reaches of Cabo Delgado known for its gorgeous colonial architecture and pretty Portuguese-style frontispieces, it does well to conceal the more industrial areas that have popped up in recent times.However, the city has never really been the pull as that honor goes to the strings of pearly-white African beaches that run along the shoreline nearby.These magnetize huge crowds with their tropical sun and swaying palms, while the shimmering and naturally deep waters of Pemba Bay have become a mecca for SCUBA divers.
7. Gorongosa National Park
Marking the deep southern reaches of the East African Rift Valley, the dry and dusty landscapes of the Gorongosa National Park occupy the very heart of Mozambique.In fact, the rolling savannah and grassy hills here have been a designated reserve since the days of Portuguese rule, when they were a private game reserve for the colonial luminaries of the day.In the 60s the spot was converted into a fully-fledged national park, and now it’s hailed as perhaps the finest safari destination in the country.Head here to seek out bouncing bushbuck, elephant herds, waterbucks, crowned cranes, wild warthogs and much more fascinating sceneries.
