image Mozambique Once an Arab trading center and then a Portuguese possession, Mozambique isn't quite like any other African nation. Its wildlife is no exception, and many of the country's treasures lie under the sea. With 1,500 miles of Indian Ocean coast, soft sand beaches and amazing coral reefs, there's plenty here to get your feet wet. Take this opportunity to check out the affordable scuba diving, go marlin fishing, swim with whale sharks or try to spot an endangered sea cow. Back on land, you'll find stretches of golden savanna, fertile river valleys and plenty of exotic birds to keep your camera busy. Every province has something different to offer- like Maputo for its proximity to South Africa and famous Elephant Reserve or Niassa for its tropical lake, which pours into Malawi. Mozambique's fusion of cultures also produces some rare dishes like curried crab. It's almost too easy but, yes, Mozambique is truly unique. Highlights: Go island-hopping in the Bazaruto Archipelago, and check out the underwater marine park and great diving – be wary of bank-breaking resorts. Tofo Beach is a better destination for budget backpackers looking for a beach and a dive shop. Excellent diving and affordable accommodation. Check out the elephant reserve in Maputo.
