Justin Fox Recommends Mozambique for the Quintessential Summer Holiday

Under the SwayNelia Vivier from Get It chatted to three Capetonians about their dream holidays, including travel journalist and author Justin Fox.

Fox makes a case for Cape Town winters, especially for the surfing, but for a summer holiday with lazy beach days or island explorations he recommends Mozambique. His book, Under the Sway: A photographic journey through Mozambique, documents his many trips to Mozambique and will give you an idea of what to expect.

“During the year I’m quite busy as a full-time writer,” says Justin Fox, “so my days are spent in front of a computer. I’ve been working on a pirate novel for some years now, so although I am physically sitting in my apartment overlooking the lighthouse in Mouille Point, my head is in Somalia with my characters. When I go on holiday, it is normally with a notebook and camera, as my other life is as a travel writer.

“When I was six, my parents took me to Europe for a long summer holiday that ended with a month in Greece staying on Patmos and Santorini. I don’t think I’ve ever really recovered from that wonderful vacation. The travel bug bit me young and has never left, hence my career as a travel writer.
