6 days from £1785pp plus international flights.
This holiday takes you to a very special place, between the azure Indian Ocean and rich dune forests, ideal for couples, families and groups of friends, with a wide choice of activities and gorgeous accommodation.
The adventure begins as you board the lodge's luxury speedboat at Maputo marina, for the hour long ride along the coast to the Santa Maria Peninsula. Keep a look out for dolphins who enjoy swimming in the boat's wake, adding their own welcome. You'll step ashore on the prefect white beach, to be greeted by smiling staff. Welcome!
Over the next few days you'll have ample time to enjoy this wonderful location. Snorkel and dive in the clear waters of Inhaca Marine Reserve coming face-to-face with fish of all colours, seeing amazing coral formations and exploring atmospheric shipwrecks. Go for long walks along the beach or in the dune forest, rich in bird life, take a kayak into the mangroves and estuaries to glimpse these unique environments. Board the lodge's dhow for a romantic cruise, savour a picnic on a deserted beach, and catch you dinner on a fishing trip!
At Machangulo Beach Lodge you can laze on the beach or by the pool, with a choice of sun or shade as you wish, and with the prospect of a refreshing swim just a few footsteps away. Enjoy a tasty snack or salad for lunch at the cheerful beach bar, and in the evening feast on fresh fish, crab, calamari and prawns at the restaurant, washed down by your choice fine wine.
However you spend your days you'll have a wonderful beach holiday, and you'll leave with happy memories and photographs to treasure.
