Mozambique - escape to a coastal paradise

Mozambique is the ultimate castaway experience. Soft white beaches and swaying palms; turquoise waters and luminous coral reefs - little wonder this idyllic destination is considered a paradise. Rustic and romantic, Mozambique is an authentic mainland African beach vacation that offers ultimate seclusion on virtually uninhabited islands. With no large resorts, your stay will be at an exclusive, eco-sensitive island lodge.

We have carefully selected eco-sensitive and intimate lodges, often with traditional thatched bandas on the beach, to provide 'barefoot luxury' at its best. Mozambique is honeymoon heaven, but many families choose Mozambique too, with water sport activities, family rooms and babysitters available in many of the lodges. Mozambique is also the perfect complement to a safari in Southern or East Africa too.

Areas such as the Bazaruto Archipelago possess some of the world's premier dive spots and breath-taking coral reefs making holidays to Mozambique a diver's dream come true. Explore a stunning underwater world and a colourful collection of marine life, from thousands of tropical fish to rare sea turtles and the elusive dugong.

The warm Indian Ocean waters are also popular with dolphins, so swing by the southern tip of Mozambique's coastline to Ponta da Ouro and watch or swim near wild dolphins; or snorkel with whale sharks at Tofu Bay. Mozambique also offers some the best Big Game Fishing in the world.

For barefoot adventure, island hop in the Quirimbas Archipelago. A true Robinson Crusoe experience, visit deserted desert islands in the middle of the ocean - you won't find peace and tranquillity like it anywhere else.

Honeymoon to Mozambique & South Africa

Sydney Jones

Our honeymoon was everything we dreamed of... a perfect balance of adventure, beauty and relaxation. It was a long journey to Africa but absolutely worth it, especially with the help of Mahlatini and Caroline, who planned a phenomenal itinerary that included Cape Town, wine country, safari and a beach stay.

Holiday to Mozambique & South Africa

Shaun & Kathleen Mulvaney

Having had our original trip cancelled due to covid in March 2020, it was great to finally enjoy our holiday which we tweaked with input from Claire which was greatly appreciated. We had multiple flights and accommodation, and having used Claire and Mahlatini 4 times previously we knew we would be well looked after, and we certainly were.
