More affordable than the Seychelles and less built-up than Mauritius, Mozambique is fast becoming the place to go for classic tropical island holidays. Its wide mainland beaches are lapped by the warm Indian Ocean but the most appealing destinations lie just offshore: two clusters of postcard-perfect islands dot the blue horizon – the Bazaruto Archipelago in the south and the exclusive private islands of the Quirimbas Archipelago near the Tanzanian border in the far north.
A Mozambique holiday is the perfect excuse to kick off your shoes, take off your watch and gear down to the slow pace of island life: swim, snorkel, laze in the sunshine or set sail on a sunset dhow cruise. When the mood takes you there are richly coloured coral reefs waiting to be explored on scuba diving trips, and the clear waters are world-renowned for big game fishing.
Mozambique beach holidays have long been associated with the concept ‘barefoot luxury’, due in part to the intimate and exclusive accommodation available. Casually luxurious beach lodges and boutique hotels set on the mainland coast as well as on islands in the Quirimbas and Bazaruto Archipelagosmake up some of our most sought after accommodation in Mozambique.
Best known for its beaches, Mozambique’s wild and beautiful game reserves such as Gorongosa National Park are home to some of the most remote safari lodges in Southern Africa. Alternatively, regular flights between South Africa’s Kruger Park and Vilanculos – gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago – ensure safari and beach holiday combinations are simple to arrange.
