An African safari is an incredible adventure – but we know just how amazing relaxing on a beach feels after an exhausting trip. That’s why we love Mozambique; its white sands, crystal clear reefs, swaying palms and fresh seafood is the perfect treat for a bush and beach holiday.
The Bazaruto Archipelago
Relaxation is certainly needed after trekking across dusty plains, which is why we love rejuvenating on the Bazaruto Archipelago. Nestled in the south, you can spend as long as you’d like sunbathing on sugary sand beaches – most likely shared with flamingos – or leisurely cruising on a traditional dhow. Two Mile Reef offers incredible diving opportunities too, with sightings of humpback whale and elusive dugong, as well as some of the best salt water fly-fishing we’ve ever experienced. Save the odd opulent lodge, you’ll feel like the only people on the island.
The Perfect Destination for Privacy and Exclusivity
Venturing to the Quirimbas Archipelago is a long journey, but we would take it time and time again – it always reaps the best rewards. The remote beaches offer the ideal spot for a picnic or an afternoon of snorkelling, and the lush mangrove forests and coral reefs are simply stunning. This is certainly a beach destination at its finest, offering much desired privacy and exclusivity.
Mozambique is an ideal accompaniment to one of Africa’s safari countries, not only for its beaches, but for its rich culture too. We love delving into Africa’s dynamic heritage, and Mozambique is teeming with it – leave the sun lounger and head over to Ibo Island, a fascinating islet brimming with colonial Portuguese history and colourful local culture. Wandering through Inhambane is a wonderful way to while away an afternoon – the quiet picturesque town is full of beautiful colonial architecture.
