For a real Robinson Crusoe type of holiday, head for the Quirimbas Archipelago where you can kick off your shoes and wear minimal clothing. Before venturing into the chain of islands in the north of Mozambique, check to see which holiday packages suit you and your loved ones.
A great place to enjoy a diving or fishing holiday is Vamizi Island – a veritable paradise where the sea is squeaky clean and the sand sunglasses white. The diving and snorkelling is spectacular because the area is so unspoilt and the dive master enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
Choose a September holiday package when fishing at Vamizi Island is world class. The Wahoo are schooling in huge numbers and the water is thick with Giant Trevally or Kingfish. Yellow Fin Tuna move in and out as do the Sailfish and Mako Sharks. If you want to try and catch a world record fish, September is the month!
Divers have very good chances of seeing the incredible and unique Coral Spawning in September when the grey reef sharks also start moving into the region. Book a diving package at Vamizi and make a dive at Neptune’s Arm – spectacular and exciting. Diving is really rewarding in November with plenty of Grey Reef Sharks and good visibility.
