The border of Mozambique and Malawi is formed by Lake Niassa (known as Lake Malawi on the Malawian side). Crystal clear turquoise water makes up this inland ocean paradise where one of our favourite eco-friendly luxury lodges provides a secluded romantic escape. The Niassa National Reserve is a vast space of untamed land, twice the size of Kruger National Park, and one of top safari destinations and the best place to spot big game wildlife in Mozambique.

The tropical climate of Mozambique ensures sunshine and warm weather (30°c/86°f) throughout the year, but more rain is likely during the summer months (November to April) with the wettest months being January and February. To target the drier months we recommend planning a visit between May and September, however you will not be disappointed with this tropical island paradise whenever you choose to visit.
Whether you choose to stay on the shores of Lake Malawi or in the Niassa Reserve you will be at one with nature. In the reserve bush walks are a real highlight, with the chance of spotting elephant, buffalo, zebra, lion and leopard. Rare bird species can be spotted from the secluded shores of Lake Malawi, where you will be totally off the grid and free to enjoy tranquil canoeing, snorkling at your leisure from one of the beautiful, remote and untouched beach coves.
Both the shores of Lake Malawi and Niassa Reserve can be accessed from Lilongwe in Malawi, making it easy to combine these regions of Mozambique with a visit to Malawi, the beating heart of Africa, or to the coastal Mozambique destinations such as the Bazaruto or Quirimbas Archipelagos. Should you choose to combine your stay with a visit to Malawi then then it is easy to access Victoria Falls, the Okavango Delta or Kruger National Park for the ultimate beach and bush holiday experience.
