Indian Ocean to Victoria Falls by Shongololo Express
A great rail journey through South Africa, Eswatini (Swaziland), Mozambique and Zimbabwe, with 11 nights on the train, safaris, excursions and a stay at the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel included
With distinctive characteristics found in the north and the south, Mozambique is a unique destination offering both beauty and culture.
Spending 400 years under Portuguese rule has left its mark in places such as Ibo Island, where dilapidated churches and crumbling mansions line the streets. You can also see the legacy of the country’s role in Swahili and Portuguese trade in its former capital, Ilha de Mocambique.
Southern Mozambique is one of Africa’s most unspoilt marine areas, with outstanding beaches, turquoise waters, shallow reefs, a string of subtropical Indian Ocean islands off from the shoreline, and the opportunity to spot Humpback whales and dolphins.
Away from the coastal paradise, big game species such as elephant, lion and rhino roam freely across the border between South Africa’s Kruger and Limpopo National Park. Reopened in 1998, the famed Gorongosa National Park is on the way to recovery following the conflict of the Civil War and is now considered a biodiversity ‘hotspot’.
