Mozambique is a hidden gem on the East Africa coast. With a vast long coastline stretching from South Africa to Tanzania Mozambique offers stunning uncrowded beaches and tropical warm Indian Ocean water. 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.
