The Country


With a population of 22 million, Portuguese being the official language , Mozambique stretches for 1,535 mi (2,470 km) along Africa’s southeast coast. It is nearly twice the size of California. Tanzania is to the north; Malawi, Zambia, and Zimbabwe to the west; and South Africa and Swaziland to the south. The country is generally a low-lying plateau broken up by 25 sizable rivers that flow into the Indian Ocean. The largest is the Zambezi, which provides access to central Africa.

The government is working with the safari operators and local communities to ensure the sustainability. Mozambique is really the old Africa.

Weather & Climate

Mozambique has a warm, tropical climate. The average temperature is around 28°C, and the weather along the coast is sunny and warm even in midwinter. Summer, from October to April, is rainy, humid, and hot. The cooler and drier winter months, from April to September, provide the most comfortable period.

Temperatures and rainfall patterns vary greatly between the regions of the country. The areas along Mozambique’s north-eastern coast are the hottest and most humid in the country, while the high-altitude regions in the Nampula are the coolest. Conditions along the coast can be hot and humid, while inland the cooler nights relieve the heat of the day. The rainy season runs from October to March in the south, but it starts and ends about six weeks later north of the Zambezi.
