Mozambique has quickly become the diamond-in-the-rough destination for luxury beach and island holidays. Many of its hidden gems border the Indian Ocean, in areas like Ponta Mamoli, Machangulo Peninsula, and the island of Benguerra. These areas have also been made easy to access through major international airports in Vilankulos and Maputo – and where previous you would have had to take a helicopter charter, you can now catch a short water or road transfer. This makes Mozambique a good-value destination.
Many of our travelers like to couple their stay in Mozambique with a safari experience in the lower part of the Kruger National Park. Its as simple as joining either Vilankulos or Maputo with a short charter flight or road transfer. This is where our extensive expertise of the area comes into effect, and we’ll be able to get you to your beach holiday without too much effort.
