Hotels & Accommodation in Mozambique

Mozambique Introduction

Travelling to Mozambique is a challenge worth taking. The journey will require a lot of patience and savvy, as it may involve visa issues, transport mishaps and miscommunication. But once you get to your Mozambican destination, you'll know the trip is worth the effort. Mozambique is visually stunning. On the beach, you'll find stretches of sand kissed by clear turquoise waters. Inland, you'll find vast bushlands teeming with wildlife, thanks to recent conservation efforts. In urban areas, the colonial-style architecture is fascinating and the nightlife exciting. Mozambique is rich in beauty and culture. A Mozambican holiday will surely be memorable.

Hotels in Mozambique

Hotels in Mozambique are widely varied. How they're set up and what amenities they provide depend on their location. For example, in highly urbanised areas like Maputo, accommodation may range from backpacker lodges to luxury hotels. Many of them will offer family-friendly services and may have facilities such as swimming pools, fitness centres and meeting spaces. Inland attractions such as Gorongosa National Park are often surrounded by bush-type lodges promoting primitive bush living. Thus, amenities in these types of lodging may be limited. Coastal cities like Pemba will have beachfront hotels and holiday apartments. Whether high-end or budget-friendly, these picks are all likely to have beach access.

Where to stay in Mozambique

Maputo is the capital city and the most developed area in Mozambique. You mustn't miss this city if you want to be immersed in Mozambican colonial culture and history. Many of the city's Portuguese-style heritage structures share space with newer buildings. The city has a lively nightlife and a laid-back beachfront. The rural community of Beira in Sofala Province is a gateway to Gorongosa National Park, one of Mozambique's more famous game reserves. Beira also has the expansive Macuti Beach. Pemba is Mozambique's beach playground. This resort town presents numerous opportunities for fun and romance on the beach.

Things to see in Mozambique

Civil war has decimated the wildlife in Gorongosa National Park. But the park is currently going through massive rehabilitation that aims to undo the civil war's damage. Visiting the park lets you see how much progress has been made. It also lets you interact with the park's growing population of safari animals. Limpopo National Park is a relatively new wildlife reserve located in southern Mozambique. It was developed partially in response to poaching. Home to Big Five game animals (lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and Cape buffalo), Limpopo NP is connected to South Africa's Kruger National Park and Zimbabwe's Gonarezhou National Park via the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. This park is envisioned as a "peace park" where animals in the region can roam freely without fences. Wimbi Beach is Pemba's most popular beach. It has great diving spots just off the coast. By day, it's a destination for water sports. By night, the beach is party central.

How to get to Mozambique

The main gateway to Mozambique is Mozambique International Airport. This airport handles flights from Durban, Johannesburg, Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Doha, Luanda, Istanbul and Lisbon. From the airport, you can catch a connecting flight to major cities in Mozambique such as Beira, Nampula and Tete. Mozambique shares borders with Malawi, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. You can cross these borders by bus. There are bus connections to Maputo from Johannesburg, Durban, Nelspruit and Komatipoort. There are Malawi buses headed for Beira, and Tete has bus links to Zambia and Zimbabwe as well.
