luxury lodge here and there such as Vamizi in the north - which is
on its own island - and Azura at Benguerra in the south.
Offshore, the waters around Mozambique offer superb diving and
have an abundance of marine life including turtles, manta rays,
dolphins and even the endangered dugong; and whale sharks and
humpback whales migrate along the Mozambique channel between the
mainland and Madagascar. There are also over 150 species of bird,
including flamingos who visit the beaches at certain times of the
year, and other activities include island hopping, riding and
exploring the colonial towns with their colourful architecture.
