New Marketing Program Set to Raise Awareness of Mozambique Travel Experiences

4 March 2011

Denver, CO – Today, Travel Marketing Worldwide announces the launch of the new Magical Mozambique portfolio. This new collaboration of Mozambique’s top travel experiences marks the country’s first destination promotion initiative in the United States market. The beginning of a two-year program focused on raising awareness about Mozambique among the U.S. travel trade, Magical Mozambique will not only educate travel agents and tour operators about Mozambique as a destination but assist in creating unique, effective itineraries that showcase a variety of experiences that are authentic, luxurious and uniquely Mozambican.

“Mozambique is truly a rising star on the African travel scene,” said Sarah Fazendin, Principal Consultant at Travel Marketing Worldwide. “With a tourism industry that was slower to develop than its neighbors, Mozambique has had the benefit of watching the successes and failures of other African destinations and as a result has created a travel experience that is not only attractive to the international market but responsible and sustainable. These are products we can wholeheartedly stand behind and are thrilled to see the response from travel agents and tour operators indicating that they feel the same.”

The cast of outstanding travel experiences that make up the Magical Mozambique portfolio includes:

  • Benguerra Lodge: The original Bazaruto Archipelago’s luxury property, Benguerra Lodge offers an unpretentious, safari-inspired beach escape. With Mozambican hosts to personally look after every guests individual needs and desires, Benguerra is the perfect place to unwind after a safari.
  • Coral Lodge 15.41: Located near UNESCO World Heritage site Ilha de Mocambique, Coral Lodge is tucked away in remote central Mozambique and offers an intimate, family-inspired luxury beach getaway with plenty of activities, some of the country’s best cuisine and a cultural flare.
  • Explore Gorongosa: The first private tourism initiative in Gorongosa National Park, guests at this intimate, traditional safari camp can experience first hand the hugely successful and world- recognized wildlife restoration project.
  • Ibo Island Lodge: Individual, secluded, and intimate, Ibo Island Lodge defines barefoot luxury. Located in the Quirimbas Archipelago National Park of Northern Mozambique, this magical area has remained all but forgotten to the outside world.
  • Mozambique Voyages: Mozambique Voyages, an in-bound operator specializing in Mozambique, provides travelers an unprecedented level of access and specialization for travel to the destination.

One of the only properties in Mozambique to offer shore access diving, divers can access the continental shelf drop-off and world-class diving in that area immediately in front of the lodge.
