Mozambique Family Holidays

With Mozambique being almost entirely cut off from technology, your kids and teens will have a break from smart phones, computer games and ipads and both their and your attention will be on enjoying time together in one of the most beautiful natural environments on the planet.

Whilst Mozambique may not offer the complete package of activities on offer in large beach resorts, those activities that are on offer are designed to get children outdoors and 'back to nature' from wildlife safaris, horse riding and fishing to water activities including diving, snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing, banana boats and sailing.

Let your kids take part in a sandcastle building competition, dune boarding or volleyball while you relax on the beach or explore some of the finest coral reefs in Africa and then finish off the day with a beach barbecue as the tropical sun dips below the horizon.

With years of experience planning family holidays to Mozambique, your dedicated family specialist will assist you in creating your own family adventure ensuring ease of travel and suitable accommodation. The vast majority of lodges in Mozambique offer a full board or all inclusive meal basis and many will provide a choice of villas or family suites too. Where lodges will offer special discounts for families your Mahlatini specialist will include these in your tailored itinerary.

Everything incredible. Just a "minus" on the Hippo Hollow part! OK but nothing special compared to the rest

Family Holiday to Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa & Zambia

Alistair Jackson

The holiday was utterly amazing. We saw the most amazing sights - from sitting on the edge of Livingston Island, to a lioness & her cubs walking towards us through the early morning sun, to elephants crossing the river in front of us, to watching dolphins & whales playing in the surf from our room balcony. But what really made the holiday so enjoyable was the smooth organisation…

Family Holiday to Mozambique, South Africa & Zambia

Katherine Yates

The holiday was excellent with the exception of Dugong Lodge which was very poor - although the location was good. The highlights were the other places we visited being River Club and Simbambili. I would like to return to both places. The overall rating of good is misleading because 2 of the places were excellent and one quite appalling.
