Tailor Made Luxury Holidays to Mozambique

109-mozambique-1-1.jpg

Sometimes only talked about in terms of its islands, Mozambique offers so much more than this, although the country does happens to boast some of the finest islands and beaches in the Indian Ocean, perfect for a beach, sailing or scuba diving holiday in Africa.

The Explorations Company, where no two journeys have ever been the same

We love Mozambique for its interest and diversity – powdery white sand beaches, fascinating islands with great history (such as Ibo Island and Ilha de Moçambique) and raconteurs – lying on the old spice trade route and instrumental during the slave era, which now lie almost deserted, with amazing colonial architecture, influenced by the Arabs, Portuguese, French and Indians.

Pristine canoeing and African walking and canoeing safaris in the Niassa Reserve; game-viewing and walking in Gorongosa National Park. Amazing scuba diving and snorkelling, swimming with dolphins and diving with whale sharks along unspoiled, untouched coral reefs!

From Robinson Crusoe hideaways to private villas, we can offer the entire spectrum, in both the north and south of the country. For the more adventurous, we can offer a dhow luxury safari along the Quirimbas archipelago or a private yacht sailing along the archipelago. The dhow safaris are one of the most intriguing and fun ways of discovering the coastline.

This is conducted on a private basis with your skipper and crew. The most fabulous meals are served, based on the fresh catch of the day and one can swim amongst dolphins.  One of the most wonderful ways to explore this coastline is to either take a dhow for around two weeks, sailing out from Pemba – or to take a dhow for a few days and then end up at a beautiful, luxury island for a few nights. Perhaps go on a night dive where one can see nocturnal fish and crustaceans.

Whilst on the islands of Ibo and Ilha de Mocambique, take in one of the festivals which are great fun. There are beautiful, old restored colonial buildings which now serve as beautiful lodges. Here be immersed in the culture of Mozambique in a completely non voyeuristic manner.

However, to stay at of these islands is to get a true understanding of the country you are visiting and we feel is a crucial adjunct to a gorgeous holiday, especially given the turbulent history of the country.  Visit the oldest catholic churches and mosques in the southern hemisphere, dating back to the time of Vasco da Gama and visit villages where children love the attention of travellers. See the fishermen drying their catches of the day.
