Overview

Quick Escape to Mozambique

Quick Escape to Mozambique, 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.  

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.
