Holidays to Southern Mozambique & the Bazaruto Archipelago: an Overview

Enjoy a luxury holiday on the Bazaruto Archipelago in Southern Mozambique and explore its deserted and pristine white beaches, warm turquoise seas and small fishing communities.

Apart from the odd luxury lodge dotted amongst the islands, there is nothing much to disturb the serene beauty of the Bazaruto Archipelago. And on the subject of the lodges, we at Original Travel have been lucky enough to visit them all, and the overall standard is right up there with the very best beach lodges worldwide.

Offshore, the fertile waters are home to an abundance of life providing superb diving and snorkelling opportunities and some of the best salt water fly-fishing and deep-sea fishing in the world. On most days you should see shoals of dolphin feeding off the endless supply of fish, and if you are lucky you may see a rare dugong or humpback whales and whale sharks migrating along the Mozambique Channel between the mainland and Madagascar.

With over 150 species of birds, the Bazaruto Archipelago is also a haven for twitchers, and at certain times of year you are likely to be sharing the beach with flocks of flamingos. Other activities include island hopping, visits to turtle nesting grounds, beach walks, and horse riding.

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.
