Briggs, P: Mozambique

6th Edition

The south coast of Mozambique is exceptionally beautiful - truly the archetype of palm-lined tropical beach nirvana - as well as boasting snorkelling, diving and game fishing to rank with the very best in the world' enthuses author Philip Briggs. This sixth edition of Mozambique leads intrepid travellers from the undiscovered north eastern provinces to the coral island of Ilha de Mocambique, with its imposing fortress. Relax on a dhow, experience a sailing safari, admire Portuguese colonial Beira or follow suggested walks around the capital Maputo. With in-depth coverage of wildlife, culture and history, and practical advice on accommodation for all budgets, the Bradt guide leads the way.
Portrait

Philip Briggs has been exploring Africa since 1986, when he spent several months backpacking on a shoestring from Nairobi to Cape Town. He has returned several times, researching and authoring the first Bradt Guide to Tanzania, and working on all subsequent editions. He has visited more than two dozen African countries and written about most of them for specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa and Wanderlust. He still spends at least four months on the road every year, usually accompanied by his wife, the travel photographer Ariadne Van Zandbergen, and spends his rest of the time in the sleepy village of Bergville, in the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg region of South Africa.
