There are around a dozen national parks and reserves in Mozambique. These range from the game reserves on the mainland, where Big Five animals can be sighted on a safari holiday, to the marine parks of the Indian Ocean coast, which are ideal for beach breaks.
Gorongosa National Park is one of Mozambique's best safari parks, where a forward-thinking conservation effort is helping to replenish animal stocks depleted during the country's long civil war. Another option is the Limpopo National Park, linked to South Africa's Kruger National Park. It's home to around 1,000 elephants, more than a hundred mammals and 500 birds. The Limpopo and Zambezi Rivers are good spots for bird watching.
Bazaruto Archipelago National Park and Quirimbas National Park are other Mozambique travel highlights. They're considered some of the world's best diving centres and, as such, both destinations are well suited for luxury tailor made holidays.
