Best time to visit

The best time to visit the Quirimbas Archipelago is in the winter months (between May and September) when both rainfall and temperatures are at their lowest. Many people choose to take a Quirimbas holiday during Mozambique's hotter and more humid summer.


The Quirimbas National Park is home to 160 species of animals, some of whom are on the Red List of Threatened Species, so the park must be maintained to help guarantee the survival of its wildlife and its future protection.
