But we were always very eager to return and in 2017 we finally had that opportunity!
Crossing the border into Mozambique, there’s definitely a change in the air. It’s immediately obvious that you’re in a different country. This really is Africa.
Africa can come as a shock to travelers from more developed parts of the world. There’s a general lawlessness here that can be daunting, but it also creates a sense of freedom…
And in Mozambique very few things happen the way they’re supposed to happen. It can be scary, but it’s also freedom. Unfettered and unhampered. And sometimes untethered.
That’s why we love it! This place is unlike anywhere else.
Our (almost) annual Mozambique Surf Trip also includes a two-day visit to the Kruger National Park, one of the biggest nature reserves on the African continent.
Traveling through the Kruger is an awesome way to see all Africa’s greatest animals, in their in the natural environment and, as always, we were blessed with some awesome sightings!
After visiting the Kruger Park, Tofo in Mozambique is our final destination and that’s where the surfing magic happens!
Tofo is ideal for all surfing levels, from complete beginner to super advanced. There are different breaks to suit different levels and it’s one of those places where everyone will be happy regardless of what they’re looking for.
And the beaches are absolutely amazing, with endless stretches of white sand, glorious sunsets and crystal-clear warm water.
Other highlights included an ocean safari, with spectacular views of dolphins, Humpback and Southern Right whales. Humpback and Southern Wright whales migrate between Mozambique and Antarctica every year. They spend the winter in Mozambique, to give birth, and then travel down to Antarctica for the summer, to feed in the cold nutrient-rich water there.
Another highlights is the a village tour that is completely unique to our Mozambique Surf Trip.
And off course we did Yoga on the beach. This is a staple of all our Surf Tours and it’s a great way to relieve tired muscles, worn out from surfing many hours every day…
This was another fantastic experience and we’re already looking forward to doing another Mozambique Surf Trip in 2018 !!!
But if Mozambique isn’t your thing, we also offer two other itineraries in Southern Africa. For more info check our other Surf Trips!
