Travel to Mozambique

Mozambique : When to go ?

As the vast majority of tourists are South Africans, tourist attendance in Mozambique is highly dependent on the school holidays of the large neighbour, including Northern provinces and Mpumalanga and Gauteng. The very high tourist season is in summer (the southern summer!), around the Christmas holidays and the new year. at this time, everything is full, it is better to avoid if you can because the prices increase and the peace is far from guaranteed! In winter, the high season begins in mid-June until 20 July, followed by a trough in the last week of July and a resumed August, when Zimbabweans are on holiday.

Mozambique : Go with a local agency

A great cultural wealthMozambique is rich in a great diversity of peoples: Shangane, Sena, Macuas... The Makondé, a people from the north, are one of the most famous of the region, known for their crafts. The Portuguese have also left their mark: Old colonial buildings, all in ruins because of the lack of money to maintain them, but which erode a unique and mysterious atmosphere.A country to be discovered before everyone elseMozambique has been enjoying peace for only about twenty years; it is therefore little time for tourists to visit the country. So there is no such thing as a local agency already experienced to make you the best stay!Between beaches and islandsImagine about 2 500 km of coastline, some of which are still completely pristine and the large, fine sand spaces protecting the coast of the ocean. The coast is cut, in its own sense: it is gradually detached from the continent, giving birth to many brackish lagoons, which will become one day of the sea arms while others will become rosaries of islands. The Bazaruto archipelago is a perfect example of this: five islands of sand and green, which instantly emerge from the infinite azure of the lagoon...A wind of African optimism" Terra da Boa Gente ", so called Vasco da Gama. And indeed, Mozambicans are very welcoming. You can be lost, without money, without means of transportation, in a village 6 hours drive from your hotel, you will always find someone to help you, feed or host you, on express recommendation of the chef de village.
In the south of the country (particularly in Maputo and Inhambane province), the price ratio of hotels can be correct. This is not the case in the North, where it is much more difficult to stay for cheap times: few campsites, few youth hostels, and average hotels are expensive, very expensive. In general, Mozambique is an expensive destination. It is difficult to stay under 30 € and some hotels require up to € 1 000 for one night in full board ?!On the contrary, restoration remains affordable. And, outside Maputo, restaurant rates are surprisingly homogeneous: they range from € 2 to € 5 for an entry, between 5 and 8 € for a dish. In Maputo, an entry costs more than 3 to 6 € and a dish from 6 to 18 €.Transport prices have increased in recent years (which led to some successful demonstrations, at least one of which has ended in blood) but remains relatively low for a Western portfolio. For those who don't accept travel, the average budget will explode because car rental is very expensive.Finally, if you are leaving Mozambique as part of a stay in Southern Africa, you will be able to organize everything from South Africa. Most of the country's tourists being South Africans, number of trips can be subject to "packages" for interesting rates, including Johannesburg flight, Lodge accommodation, or even activities. Check with your travel agency or directly with the lodges in Mozambique that offer these packages.Basic indicative tariffsA meal in a restaurant: between 200 and 1 000 Mtn.A bottle of wine in a restaurant: at least 500 Mtn.One night in youth hostel dormitory or camping ?: around 300 Mtn.One night in luxury hotel: around $ 600 per nightBreakfast breakfast/cakes: 120 Mtn.A packet of cigarettes: 40 MtnLocal beer (0,5 l): 50 Mtn.A soda on the street: 20 Mtn.A banana regime in chapas traps: 5 Mtn.A short distance in chapa: 5 Mtn.A long distance by bus or by chapa: about 1 Mtn (and 1 min of transportation) for each kilometre to travel.A taxi race in Maputo: minimum 100 Mtn.Rental of 4 X 4: from US $ 150 to US $ 250 per day.Internet: 1 Mtn per minute.Aircraft (LAM rates - from - in the case of purchase of the ticket more than one week in advance): Maputo-Pemba: 6 410 Mtn ?; Lichinga-Nampula: 2 200 Mtn ?; Nampula-Beira: 3 000 Mtn.FormalitésYou must apply for a visa at the Embassy of Mozambique in Paris.

Spoken languages

Portuguese, official language, is spoken only by 25 ? % of the population according to some official data. During the war, entire parts of the country remained far away from the rest of the territory, and the learning of the lingua franca suffered. However, in town you will always find someone to speak in Portuguese. In hotels, English is widely used, and the more touristic the region, the more chances you can use the language of Shakespeare and pay directly into rands or dollars. French remains very rare.Learning language: There are different ways to learn a few basics of language and the offer for self-learning can be done on different media: CD, DVD, exercise books or even directly on the Internet.


Mozambique's currency is metical (plural: .). The euro is a currency that is increasingly appreciated in tourist areas, however as soon as you exit Maputo, prefer US dollars or the South African rand, the euro is hard off! Many are high-end hotels to display their prices and even to make invoices in these two currencies, rands and US dollars. But according to the regions, these currencies are welcomed. Metical follows the price of the dollar and from day to day the rate can be very different! For tips, desired currencies vary from place to place. As a general rule, the meticais do the business as long as the borders are not approaching. After that, it is another story... Of course, the Zimbabwean dollar is banned, the Tanzanian shilling and the Zambian kwacha are worthless. On the other hand, the South African rand is king in the entire southern half of the country and the dollar is fairly sought out throughout the territory. In the provinces of Tete and Niassa, the malawite kwacha was hoped for.


Mozambique can be divided into three major climatic zones: a frequent rainfall zone from the north to the centre, a cool and rainy area on the high plateaus inside the country and a dry zone in the south.
