Combine idyllic islands with the Kruger

Home to some of the most unspoilt Indian Ocean islands in Africa, Mozambique is fast becoming a favourite for among romantic travellers as it is for those seeking the quintessential tropical beach experience: coral reefs, deserted beaches & ocean-edge dining under the stars.

Our recommended Mozambique accommodation lies on the Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos. Many of our top choices are natural honeymoon destinations but we’ve also included family-friendly lodges as well as those that will appeal to water sports enthusiasts, snorkellers and scuba divers. You can expect high standards of accommodation, service and cuisine at these island lodges as well as plenty of privacy. Several offer spa treatments and massages; others organise horseback safaris, sunset dhow cruises and whale watching.

What to Do

Your Mozambique beach holiday

1. Kick Off your Shoes

Mozambique’s long Indian Ocean coast is dusted with clusters of tropical islands; expect gorgeous white-sand beaches & well-placed hammocks at both family-friendly resorts & honeymoon hideaways.

2. Grab a Mask & Snorkel

Home to marine reserves & private conservation islands, Mozambique’s archipelagos offer some of the best snorkelling & diving in Africa. Snorkel along a reef near shore of the islands.

3. Ride a Horse on the Beach

Thunder along a beach on horseback, sunny Mozambique is one of the best places to do it. Horse safaris are offered on the Vilanculos coast & Benguerra Island – the ride ends with a swim for the two of you!

4. Escape to a Private Island

Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago is where you’ll experience ‘Crusoe-chic’ at its most sophisticated: exclusive-use islands, tucked-away villas & palm-fringed pampering. It’s the perfect romantic retreat.

5. Swim with Whale Sharks

Mozambique is one of the world’s best places to see & even swim with the planet’s biggest fish. These gentle giants are active close to the surface, making for excellent sightings – ask us about the best places.

6. Enjoy the Local Culture

Take a break from the beach & discover Mozambique’s cosmopolitan history. It’s a great opportunity for photography & your guided tour includes local markets, Portuguese forts & churches.

7. Dive the Indian Ocean

Surrounded by premier diving sites, an underwater wonderland for divers, with a rich variety of tropical fish species complemented by Africa’s only population of the rare dugong.

8. Catch the Big One

The deep Mozambique Channel, which runs alongside the islands, is renowned for its game fish and the archipelago offer some of the world’s best catch-and-release deep sea fishing and fly fishing opportunities.

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately…… evasive tactics, always head-on!
