"My Nov 2015 trip"

I visited Mozambique between 3 Nov 2015 and 17 Nov 2015
"We loved the country and felt safer there than in any other African country we have been to. A great holiday - thanks

Ellie was very helpful on the outward journey when our BA flight was delayed and we may have had to change flight. Luckily in the end we just about made our connection thanks to SAA's flexible check in timings!" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 13 on a Mozambique holiday

"A fantastic trip"

I visited Mozambique and 1 other country between 30 Aug 2007 and 16 Sep 2007
"Overall we had the most amazing time.

There was a stressful interlude involving lost luggage and not having any seats on the Air Mozambique flight, but all in all we couldn't have wished for a better trip. The trip was actually booked with Penny Hooper who we understand has now left. She did a great job of talking through our requirements and was spot on with her recommendations.

We'd book through Expert Africa again." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 9 on a Mozambique holiday

I visited Mozambique and 2 other countries between 28 Jul 2007 and 11 Aug 2007
"A good combination of towns and beach.

Quilalea is a very distinct experience and well worth the money.

For Mozambique it would have been good to have had a variety of places to choose from to visit, eg Ilha de Mozambique.
Maputo was very interesting and underrated." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 7 on a Mozambique holiday
