WHAT ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF VISITING MOZAMBIQUE IN JUNE?

  • It’s humpback whale migration season – the majestic mammals depart from Antarctica and make for the warm waters off East Africa, where the females give birth

ANY LOWLIGHTS?

  • Mozambique’s month-long summer holiday begins in late June, so it’s advisable to book your accommodation in advance if you plan to travel during this time

  • Occasionally the sea can get choppy, which isn’t ideal for diving.
