About this book

The south coast of Mozambique is exceptionally beautiful – truly the archetype of palm-lined tropical beach nirvana – as well as boasting snorkelling, diving and game fishing to rank with the very best in the world enthuses author Philip Briggs. The fifth edition of Mozambique leads intrepid travellers from the undiscovered northeastern provinces to the coral island of Ilha do Mozambique, with its imposing fortress.

Relax on a dhow, experience a sailing safari, admire Portuguese colonial Beira or follow suggested walks around the capital Maputo. With in-depth coverage of wildlife, culture and history, and practical advice on accommodation for all budgets, Bradt Travel Guide: Mozambique leads the way.

"The guide reads well and contains all that an enterprising traveller or backpacker might need in the way of information about this little-known country."
