Mozambique enjoys a burgeoning reputation as a special destination. A very special destination. But to get the most from this marvellous southern African country; to savour its poetically beautiful Indian ocean coastline stretching for over 2,500km, and to get unique access to its people, places and wildlife, you need an experienced, highly knowledgeable operator - and that means A&K.

Our large flexible regional team has offered premium travel for over four decades. That means you get the most passionate local guides selected for their specialist knowledge, 24-hour emergency contact and seamless ground arrangements, along with long-established relationships that allow us to offer extraordinary experiences beyond the reach of ordinary travellers.

Take an Abercrombie & Kent luxury holiday to Mozambique in 2015, 2016 and you'll find its gorgeous coast sprinkled with exclusive boutique accommodation, with easy bush to beach connections from safari hotspots. The Quirimbas Archipelago in the north has over 50 islands, surrounded by some of Africa's best-preserved coral reef - it recently became a national park - offering glorious snorkelling and diving.

And it's not a one-off. You'll find the same holy trinity of bleached white sand, waving palms and translucent shallows dotted with dhow sails in the Bazaruto Archipelago further south: five sun-kissed islands swaddled by one of the largest marine reserves in the Indian Ocean with humpback whales, turtles and manta rays, alongside pristine coral.

This is a country where the classical ingredients of a tropical paradise are served with generous dollops of history from the churches, mosques and colonial architecture of UNESCO listed Ilha de Mozambique, a potpourri of African, Arab and European cultures, to Maputo's colonial harbour and Edwardian railway station, recently voted one of the ten most beautiful in the world.

We can also take you inland, revealing the wildlife of Goronga National Park. A great African restoration story, it reflects the joint efforts of the government and an American non-profit organisation to re-establish game, including elephant, lion and antelope, over 4,000 square kilometres of central Mozambique.

As the country continues to redevelop and reveal its treasures, it offers more and more for the visitor, and with A&K it's all possible.
