Mozambique: Africa’s must see destination for 2016

The New York Times places Mozambique in sixth place in its list of 52 Places to Go in 2016, published last Thursday.

“A forward-thinking African leader that offers a terrific mix of safari and beach,” is how they describe the country, while its tolerance regarding gender orientation makes it “a more open-minded African destination for LGBT travellers”.

“The bustling capital, Maputo, is experiencing a budding tolerance, while advocacy groups like Lambda Moz continue to help de-stigmatize homosexuality countrywide,” reads the report.

It goes on to describe “Mozambique’s tranquil coast” which “continues to draw travellers of all kinds in search of post-safari snorkel and surfing options”.

Mozambique is the only African destination in this list.
