The thrill of big game fishing was a real surprise and delight, and catching my own lunch while staying on the island of Vamizi was a definite high point in my African travels.

Mozambique is a destination on the up, thanks to a period of sustained stability since the civil war ended in 1992 and a wealth of natural attractions – in particular its long stretches of unspoilt coastline. With their palm-fringed beaches and pristine coral reefs, the beautiful islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago in the south or the Quirimbas Archipelago in the north make the perfect luxury holiday destination.
Why we think you’ll love it
- The Mozambiquan waters are one of the world's hidden gems and the Quirimbas Archipelago has, in our opinion, the best diving on the East African coast
- From July to November, southern right and humpback whales visit the warm coastal waters to mate and calve
- Few islands are as unspoilt as those off the coast of Mozambique, often with just one lodge and miles of deserted white sand to make your own while on a luxury holiday
