Our Private Island Family Escape takes you on a Mozambique family holiday. Stay in a private island paradise which is situated in a protected marine reserve. Stay in an eco-friendly villa and enjoy the personalised attention of the staff. Snorkel directly off the beach and see magnificent corals and a wide diversity of fish. Children will love seeing Dolphins and Green Turtles which nest on the island in November.
While on your Mozambique family holiday you can stroll along the pristine sandy white beaches and explore the island which is dominated by prehistoric-looking Baobab trees. Savour tantalizing meals, which are freshly prepared by the chef using local seafood. Afterwards, learn about the mythology of the cosmos during a stargazing session.
The marine reserve offers some of the best diving in the World and you can see Mantas, Barracuda as well as go on exciting night dives. Older children will have the opportunity to learn to dive. Visit some nearby islands, learn about the history of Ibo Island and have a beach picnic. Head out on a tranquil sunset cruise in a traditional boat called a dhow. Do as much or as little as you wish - just relax and soak up the sun.
On the first morning of your Private Island Family Escape Package you will fly from Johannesburg O. R. Tambo International Airport to Pemba. There someone will meet you and help you transfer to a light aircraft which will take you to the Quirimbas Islands.
Once you have landed in the Quirimbas, a boat transfer will take you to the private island. There is no jetty, so you'll get your feet wet as you arrive! Enjoy a welcoming drink and the host will take you to the villa.
After settling in, enjoy a tasty light meal. Perhaps follow the walking trail and learn your way around the island. Go for a stroll on the beach or have a dip in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Sip on a refreshing tropical cocktail and watch the sunset. Savour the zesty flavours of a gourmet dinner on the beach. Learn about the beauty of the sky during a star gazing session. (Dinner Included)
On your Mozambique family holiday you can dive some of the most pristine reefs in the world, and see a great number of reef fish, Morays and Mantas. Children over the age of 10 can learn to dive and if you are an experienced diver, go on a night dive and see the nightlife on the reef. After a busy day, soak in an open air bubble bath and sip on a glass of bubbly. This is followed by a candlelight beach dinner while the children are kept entertained. (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included)
On the final day of your Private Island Family Escape Package enjoy one last snorkelling trip or a dip in the Ocean followed by breakfast on the deck. Then a boat will take you back to Quirimbas Island where you will catch a light aircraft flight to Pemba Airport, where you will board a connecting flight back to Johannesburg. (Breakfast Included)
