Share this

An idyllic paradise awaits you on the beaches of Mozambique as we discover local cuisine, island lifestyle, magical underwater sea life and soak up the tropical sun.

Leaving the craziness of Maputo behind us, we make our way up the Mozambiquan coastline to Inhambane. Passing through palm lined streets scattered with locals plying their wares, you’ll be captivated by the scenery before arriving in Inhambane. Relax on the beach, go horseriding or discover the underwater world on an ocean safari where you can snorkel with whale sharks or scuba dive and watch a manta ray cleaning station in action. Continuing up the coast we board a traditional dhow and sail across to the Bazaruto archipelago where you’ll eat fresh seafood on the beach, wiggle your toes in white sand dunes and snorkel in aquarium like conditions.

Highlights:

Praia do Tofo - one of the best destinations for divers to see Whale Sharks
Bazaruto Archipelago National Park - snorkelling in one of Southern Africa’s largest marine parks


Day 1. Inhambane – Barra Beach
After meeting your crew in Maputo, we set out for the Inhambane District we travel the northern road along the coast. While it is a long day on the road there is much to see as we pass the many villages and plantations of coconuts, cashews and sugar cane. Our journey will bring us to the palm lined beaches for two days of relaxation and ocean fun. Tonight we are welcomed with a traditional Mozambique dinner.

Day 2. Inhambane
With two days of beach time we have an opportunity to relax and enjoy the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, the more adventurous can sign up for a variety of optional activities. The beaches at Barra are safe for swimming and the reefs on this stretch of coast offer excellent opportunities for diving or snorkelling.

Day 3. Inhambane
Today we make the short drive to Tofo to spend the day enjoying yet another of Mozambique’s iconic beaches. With safe swimming, a charming market and a number of popular beach bars, Tofo is perfect for a day’s outing. A second day not only ensures that you have the opportunity to make the most of the activities on offer; it also allows us some flexibility to adapt to the weather.

Day 4. Vilanculos
This morning we make a stop in Inhambane where you will have the opportunity to explore the market and the historic streets of this former slave trading port. For those who enjoy a good adventure, your guide will arrange one of the famous Dhow ferries to sail you across the bay. These sturdy old boats have plied the East Coast of Africa for centuries and the trip across the bay is a truly local experience. Should you prefer, you may remain with the truck for the water taxi to Maxixe on the far side of the bay. Reunited with our truck we travel north to our next stop at Vilanculos.

Day 5. Bazaruto Excursion
We board a traditional dhow this morning and set sail to the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago, one of the largest Marine reserves in Southern Africa. We spend the day exploring the islands, snorkelling and enjoying the beaches of this island paradise. Be sure to keep your sunblock handy as today is filled with sun, sea, sand and exploration. We return in the afternoon and enjoy a well-earned night of rest.

Day 6. Xai Xai District

Well rested we set course for the Xai-Xai district, arriving in the late afternoon we have time for a walk on the beach or a sundowner to bid farewell to the Indian Ocean and the pristine beaches of Mozambique.

Day 7. Maputo
We set out early this morning as we head for Maputo. Your tour comes to an end upon arrival in Maputo.
