The good news is that Mozambique is one of the most gay-friendly nations in Africa. Although local residents still face some discrimination challenges and same-sex marriage is not recognised, tourists can freely express their love as same-sex sexual activity was legalised in June 2015.
Although there is still some discrimination against same-sex couples, when you travel with Out2Africa, we ensure that we place you in the most gay-friendly accommodation and even plan your activities accordingly. That way, you can focus on what’s really important — which is having the best holiday, of course!
Mozambique is very gay-friendly for tourists. Homosexuality was legalised in 2005, so you can rest assured that you will feel right at home. Some locals still face some discrimination, but when you book with Out2Africa, we place you in the crème de la crème of gay-friendly destinations.
Yes! The luxury accommodation options we will place you at are very gay-friendly. Therefore, you can walk down the beaches holding hands without a care in the world.
The Gay Capital of Africa, South Africa, should without a doubt be added to your itinerary. And since it's just a short flight from Cape Town, you should add a Big 5 safari at Kruger National Park, as well as a stopover at Victoria Falls to your African holiday.
Everything! Since homosexuality is legal, you can partake in all activities straight couples do. From doing as little as possible on the beach, snorkelling, swimming, scuba diving, dhow cruises and fishing, you will never get bored. You can also venture to the Machangulo Private Nature Reserve for some safari sightings. By booking with Out2Africa, we further ensure that you don’t run into issues.
From Luxury Villas right on the beach, Island Resorts & Spas, Eco-Luxury Chalets, Ultra-Modern Luxury Suites, or more secluded Luxury Chalets in the Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary, your options are endless.
