We recently traveled to Mozambique despite some of the bad things we heard about the country. What we uncovered were some of the friendliest people in the world and completely untouched coastline.

It has quickly become one of our most favorite countries to travel through. We made this post to inspire others to travel to some of the lesser known destinations in Africa.

The Mozambicans are so gosh darn happy

While in a rural village we saw everyday life pass by for the villagers

Bringing in the fresh catch of the day

The shores are filled with boats everyday coming in with their catch

Cake all around

The Mozambicans loved having their photo taken

I told this guy he reminded me of R Kelly

The people are so giving. This was all of this woman’s cassava to which she graciously offered us some

It’s lunch time!

We have never seen such blue water

Inside a remote village

The proud women of Mozambique

Not the look of anger, but instead the look of confusion as we were different than other people he has seen before

Many men climb palm trees to bring down the coconuts. They then sell them every day

The fish is amazing in Mozambique

This was the chief of the village. We took a photo of his family and he loved it

The untouched coastline

This boy was certainly not camera shy. And even encouraged his friends to have their photo taken too

Everyone is all smiles

A sunset has never been so beautiful

One person on the entire beach. And it was one of us!
