Fantastic discoveries, both above and below the surface.
The country of Mozambique is located on the Indian Ocean and is separated from Madagascar in the east by the Mozambique Channel. It borders South Africa and Zimbabwe to the south and west, Zambia to the northwest and Malawi and Tanzania to the north. In the central part of the country flows the river Zambezi. Off its coast there are many small islands with fantastic beaches and here are opportunities for various activities such as snorkeling or diving.
Abbreviated as MZ by Abbreviationfinder, Mozambique was a Portuguese area of interest from the 16th century and became a colony in the 19th century. Between 1951 and 1975 it was a Portuguese overseas territory, before it became independent in 1975 after an armed liberation struggle from 1964, under the leadership of Samora Machel. The capital is called Maputo.
MOZAMBIQUE & KRUGER PARKS
We combine exciting safaris in the southern part of the Kruger Park in Mpumalanga at a really good lodge in the Big Five area. Here you have a great chance to see rhinos, both white and black, elephants up close, lots of herbivores and of course the large predators that are found here. The lodge has a watering hole where we can spend the warm time
of the day scouting for thirsty animals.

We reach the lodge in 1.5 hours by speedboat and wade ashore for a warm welcome. Here you will find everything you could want from lazy days at the beach, good swimming and snorkeling as well as nightly turtle scouting under the auspices of the lodge’s staff.
