The Africa Adventure Company

Vamizi Island, Mozambique

Vamizi Island offers 13 spacious sea-facing beach villas that have been designed to ensure privacy. Each is set 70m apart, and nestled under trees along the shore. Built and crafted by local islanders, the palm-thatched villas are furnished with king-sized beds fitted with Egyptian cotton sheets. Expansive verandas and Swahili daybeds are perfect for an afternoon siesta. Mozambiquean marble bathrooms, African designs and woodwork complete the idyll.

Marine activities offered at the lodge include world-class deep sea, fly or shore fishing as well as scuba diving and snorkeling in the pristine coral reefs. Kayak along the beach, or take a leisurely dhow cruise in the sparking sea. Guided walks, picnics and a day trip to nearby Rongui Island are available, or enjoy a range of pampering spa treatments as a relaxing alternative.

Fresh fish, prawns, calamari, lobster, crab and crayfish are cooked to perfection by a team of Cordon Bleu chefs. All meals, soft drinks, local beer, house wine, bottled water, laundry and shore-based guided activities are included. Children of all ages are welcome.
