Overview

As we kick off the Escape to Mozambique tour we leave the craziness of Maputo behind us and make our way up the Mozambican 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 horse riding 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. Early risers can enjoy the sunrise in the beach before we depart to Maputo where this tour comes to an end. Excludes Activity Package; R 2 800 per person and single supplement. 

This tour has a Comfort Option available.

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 trip to Maxixe on the far side of the bay. Reunited with our truck we travel north to our next stop at Vilanculos.
