Northern Mozambique & Quirimbas Archipelago

Northern Mozambique & Quirimbas Archipelago: an Overview

What started as a trickle of top quality lodge openings has become a steady flow as word spreads of the sheer remote beauty of the Quirimbas archipelago.

Isabel, Eleanor and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • There's nothing like snorkelling and picnicking on uninhabited islands…try a mobile camping and sailing safari
  • There's more to the Quirimbas Archipelago than beautiful beaches…..find out more about Mozambique's colonial past on Ibo Island
  • It's a great place to try your hand at sport fishing... have some high energy fun while catching your own lunch

Northern Mozambique & Quirimbas Archipelago: The Detail

We at Original Travel have visited and revisited the Quirimbas Archipelago several times in the last few years to keep abreast of the openings.

The conclusion? Getting there may require a long journey by air, land and sea, but it is well, well worth the effort. In addition to idyllic beaches, the archipelago contains mangrove forests and some of the richest coral reefs in the world.

Over 350 species of reef fish have been recorded, and other marine species present include turtles, manta rays, whale sharks, humpback whales, and the endangered dugong.

As well as world class snorkelling and diving, activities include sea kayaking, fishing and sailing trips on traditional dhows. Add in delicious fresh seafood and you have a great destination for a barefoot beach holiday.

For a dose of culture amidst all the R&R and aquatic activities, Ibo Island also has a long and interesting history as a trading post, with the Chinese, Arabs and Portuguese all having left their mark.

A note on price

Mozambique can be combined with a safari elsewhere in Africa, but a straightforward week at one of the country’s beautiful and unspoilt beach hotels would cost from between £2,700 to £6,250 per person including flights. Learn more about our pricing
