With its long swathes of unspoilt coastline, warm turquoise waters and pristine coral reef, Mozambique is a perfect honeymoon destination. Add to this the ‘bush’ element in South Africa or Tanzania, and Mozambique nails the ultimate ‘bush and beach’ moon.

When it comes to beaches, Mozambique is the go-to place, with palm fringed stretches running along the coast. The north and the south of the country both boast remote beaches, dotted with the odd luxury lodge here and there such as Vamizi in the north - which is on its own island - and Azura at Benguerra in the south.

Offshore, the waters around Mozambique offer superb diving and have an abundance of marine life including turtles, manta rays, dolphins and even the endangered dugong; and whale sharks and humpback whales migrate along the Mozambique channel between the mainland and Madagascar. There are also over 150 species of bird, including flamingos who visit the beaches at certain times of the year, and other activities include island hopping, riding and exploring the colonial towns with their colourful architecture.

Mozambique makes for a fantastic 'bush and beach' combination with the likes of Tanzania and South Africa, where honeymooners can see inhabitants include oribi, reedbuck, impala, waterbuck and warthog as well as prides of lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo and leopard, to name but a few. All in all, Mozambique is a perfect honeymoon destination.
