Mozambique also has amazing marine reserves filled with coral reef, whales, dolphins, whale sharks, reef fish and more as well as inland game reserves. Not a very developed country Mozambique has a charm of its own, tourism is slowly developing and what Mozambique lacks sometimes in service standards it more then makes up for in friendliness and outstanding beauty
