Escaping to the remote shores of Ibo island for a dose of intriguing history, unique culture and breathtaking scenery.

Staying in an ancient mansion and settling in for romantic tête à tête dinners on deserted stretches of beach.

Choosing from over 16 different dive sites, teeming with a rainbow of marine life and pristine reefs.

Heading to the Bazaruto Archipelago for its pristine white beaches, palms, milk wood trees, sand dunes, lakes, and crystal waters.

Ever set foot in a place so ruggedly beautiful and remote that you feel as if you've stumbled across a new part of the world? Well pinch yourself, because this gorgeous destination is back and it's bigger and better than ever before. With stunning lodges now available in the north and south, Mozambique offers the perfect beach add-on to any safari holiday in Tanzania or South Africa. Don't fancy big game spotting? Let's head straight for the beaches.

northern mozambique

Made up of 27 islands known as the Quirimbas Archipelago, is one of Africa's undiscovered treasures.

evening dining at the rooftop restaurant

Easily accessible from Tanzania, it's the perfect place to chill out after an adrenalin pumping safari. Head to the remote shores of Ibo island to days kayaking, diving, swimming, fishing or taking private dhow safaris. Stay in 100-year-old mansions and soak up the modern yet rustic luxury as you kick back and feel your worries drift away.

vamizi island

If you can't get enough of wildlife then head to Vamizi Island where you'll sleep in luxury palm-thatched beach villas facing the Indian Ocean. Set on a white beach against a backdrop of tropical forest - we guarantee you'll feel a million miles from home. The marine life teems with 350 species of fish and untouched corals; the forest is a haven for Samango monkeys who climb through the trees and there are little sandy coves where Giant Coconut crabs and turtles make their homes.

bazaruto archipelago

Just finishing up a safari in South Africa? You'd be crazy not to hop over to the Bazaruto Archipelago for a couple of days. Just off the coast of Southern Mozambique (twenty minutes by boat from Vilanculos), the three main islands sit peacefully within a national marine park and these pristine white beaches make for a completely magical escape.

pure tranquility on vamizi island

Staying at Marlin lodge you'll have your very own beach chalet with private deck area - a few small steps from the beach. And this idyllic dreamland has some of the best diving around (think reefs so multi-coloured you'll wish your Oakley's were a wetsuit accessory).

Mozambique has everything: total luxury, endless activities and a peaceful tranquillity that envelops you as soon as your feet touch the sand. Oh and did we mention that it's breathtakingly beautiful? Yup, some places really do have it all.
