Mozambique is Africa’s longest country, stretching from the bottom of Tanzania, past Zimbabwe, and right down to South Africa and Swaziland. As the wildlife populations recover from a protracted civil war that ended in the early 90s, I wouldn’t classify Mozambique as a stand-alone safari destination just yet. However, if you are a diver or a sailor, there is nothing more spectacular in all of Africa than the little islands of the many archipelagos that protect it’s coastline.

Please Google Ibo Island and/or Ibo Island Lodge to see the most hauntingly beautiful places I have ever visited.
