Nuarro and Mozambique Island

Island life, off the beaten track in northern Mozambique.

8 days from £1550pp plus international flights.

Experience the wild, natural beauty of northern Mozambique, staying in two delightful lodges you're sure to love.

  • Picnic on a deserted white sand beach
  • Explore the faded colonial grandeur of Mozambique Island
  • Swim, snorkel and dive in the Indian Ocean
  • Enjoy life well off the beaten track
  • Meet the local people on a village visit

The northern coast of Mozambique is picture perfect! Long stretches of white sand backed to swaying palm trees, lapped by the impossibly blue waters of the Indian Ocean. This is a region of raw, unspoilt beauty, well away from crowds, where you can enjoy nature, meet local people and do as much or little as you want.

Your first destination is Mozambique Island. For such a small island it has a wonderfully rich past, having served as an important trading post in the Portuguese empire since the 16th century. There's a fine fort and many impressive colonial buildings, though today life is quieter, and the you can explore at a leisurely place as you picture the hustle and bustle of centuries gone by. Your guest house is part of this history, too. Over its 300 years it's been home to prominent traders and merchants and is filled with Indian and Arab antiques and artefacts. It'll be unlike anywhere you've ever stayed before!

Next you had north to the stunning Baixo do Pinda Peninsula. This region is remote, and getting here is part of the adventure! Once you've arrived you won't want to leave. This is an enchanting location and your lodge, with its rustic simplicity, fits perfectly. With scenery this beautiful you don't need distractions like TV in your room, though you do have hot water and limited electricity thanks to solar power. Swim and snorkel in the sea, picnic on a deserted beach, visit the village and take a dhow cruise - you have five days to experience this little slice of paradise.

Northern Mozambique is a wild and beautiful place, less accessible than the south of the country, but that just means you won't have to share it with so many people! You'll remember the charms of this remote region and its people long after you've left.
