The boutique lodges on Mozambique’s extensive Indian Ocean coastline and islands are some of most secluded and eco-conscious in Africa. Lodges are thoughtfully designed, using local materials and traditional skills, and most have closely integrated working relationships with the communities that live near by. Arguably a beach Mozambique honeymoon perfectly illustrates the idea of ‘barefoot luxury’, with a laid-back approach to life, yet with attentive service, delicious fresh cuisine and a whole host of authentic amenities and activities.
The stunning island archipelagoes of Bazaruto and the Quirimbas are two of the main areas that attract honeymooners to Mozambique. However, the remote Lake Niassa Resort in the north of the country, Nkwichi, is increasingly attracting attention as the lodge offers a wonderful get-away for those seeking complete relaxation. In the south of the country, the long sand beaches and azure seas at White Pearl give honeymooners all the attractions of a traditional beach focused Mozambique honeymoon, but with less time spent travelling there. It’s an easy transfer, for example, from South Africa’s Kruger National Park to Maputo and on to White Pearl by helicopter, making this a first-rate safari and beach honeymoon.
The wonderful ocean settings are a key ingredient of many Mozambique honeymoons but the country is also a fast emerging safari destination. Gorongosa National Park has undergone a revival in recent years, driven by the philanthropist Gregg Carr, who has funded the restoration of the reserve which was once one of the great African national parks. It’s now well on the way to having the Big-Five once more.
