Forget Mauritius, hello Mozam

Forget Mauritius, hello Mozam

Liezel van der Westhuizen loves travelling and her new favourite spot … Mozambique.


We asked Liezel for her Top 10 Reasons why Everyone Should Travel to Mozambique:

  1. Inhaca Island and Mozambique  has some of the best diving in Africa. The water is clean and the ocean life is so beautiful.
  • Mozambique has over 2500km of un-spoilt beaches which makes it the ideal secluded beach destination. Think romantic trip in the sun…
  • The cuisine is to die for. Mozam is famous for the quality of its fresh seafood and peri-peri Chicken.
  • No visa required – As a South African, you didn’t need a visa. Score!
  • It’s the ideal destination for the entire family with so many outdoor activities from Quad biking, 4×4’ing, horse riding and fishing.
  • It’s an affordable holiday destination which is close enough to drive to from SA and is a great option for a budget island holiday getaway.
  • Great weather for most of the year.  May to November is the perfect time to travel, I went during the rainy season but still had a great time (not too cold and water is still warm ).
  • One of my main highlights of my trip were the people. They are very helpful, funny and welcoming to visitors.
  • Off the south point of Inhaca Island is Ponte Torres which is a protected coral reef reserve. This is literally the most perfect place for snorkelling.
  • The Maputo Special Reserve which was Formerly known as the Maputo Elephant Reserve,  is a perfect day trip for people staying in the Maputo area.
