It’s time to brush up on your Portuguese because you’re heading to Mozambique. Many travelers find themselves soaking in the Mozambican Sun during the December holidays, however, some if not most have no idea where to go. We understand that if you’re flying in from far, an expert’s guide is just what you need.
1. Viva la Visa
Is your passport in check? Do you have your Visa? Remember to make sure that you have your visa and passport are both in check for your trip to Mozambique. If you hold a British passport or one from anywhere else in the EU, a visa is required. Don’t let your holiday start with stress, get it all sorted in advance and begin your holiday stress free.
2. Pack Light
When you are packing for this trip, remember this summer is nothing like summers in Britain, but more like Spain or any other country that reaches more than 30 degrees a day. Ensure that you pack your lightest, coolest fabrics; your costumes and your sun hats, sunglasses, sandals and loads of sunblock – we suggest carrying these items wherever you go – as the sun is warm from morning to late afternoon and a holiday is not fun when you’re sun burnt!
3. Sua casa for the suit cases
The hot spots in Mozambique are situated all around the magnificent destination, after all that is why it is such a phenomenal place to take a holiday.

4. R & R
You are headed to Mozambique for some R & R, but the locals know R & R as rum and raspberry and we certainly encourage you to try their local master piece because “when in Rome” or rather “when in Mozam”.
5. Don’t say no to H20
Don’t mix too much sun with too much rum. Keep yourself hydrated at all times, carry bottles of still water and make sure to drink lots, especially if you will be indulging in a few day time cocktails
6. Say “Sim” to Street bash
If you decide to stay in Pemba, then every Sunday from around 3pm, the main road, just behind Wimbe Beach is populated with people.
Locals and foreigners join together and party like it’s New Year’s Eve, but it’s not, it’s Sunday afternoon, but just as festive. You will be entertained by jam sessions with the sounds of the guitar and drums, be sure to grab a bite to eat from the delicious street food available. If you fancy sitting down and enjoying a meal, then visit one of the many restaurants and enjoy Mozambique’s peri-peri prawns and the traditional Mozambican and Portuguese cuisine. Do you feel like a prawn curry? No problem, these restaurants serve up the best local cuisine.
