This mountain is covered by lowland forests, Afro Alpine grasslands, miombo woodlands, making the place postcard perfect. This is one of the scenic walking tours you can ever have in your life. There are endangered and native birds that do reside here that you will be able to spot on your walk.


Bazaruto Archipelago

With most tropical parts of the world, you can expect a good diving spot. This goes for Mozambique too. The archipelago has five islands which are all well protected.
