Mozambique - At a Glance

Mozambique is one of those little known destinations that has emerged out of Civil War and now beckons with its beautiful beaches and swaying palms, its cultures, and its opportunities to make a difference on your luxury adventure. The azure waters abound with shoals of resplendent fish, largely pristine corals, remote islands, and elegant dhows to sail on, or just admire from afar. There is wildlife here too; its interior is still something of an adventure and well worth the effort. What’s more, you can help build a classroom and establish a school in a rural village, so get ready for a unique luxury adventure.

Testimonial

"Whilst we had an incredible trip, I am reluctant to say too much as I don't want too many people to discover this gem...but what the hey: you did an incredible job preparing the perfect itinerary for us: just the right combination of helping and relaxation. I miss the beaches so much - sooo beautiful! And the people won our hearts from the start. It was such a joy to build a playground for those kids, so rewarding too: our kids can't stop talking about it. We can't wait to go back. Mozambique - please don't change!"
