Start your adventure in the wildlife-rich Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe; enjoy close-up animal encounters on morning and evening game drives, and track game on foot. Evenings are for bush tales by the fire while sipping on an ice cold Amarula or Gin & Tonic and listening to the sounds to the African bush. Then after a brief stop in Johannesburg, South Africa, it’s time to wash off the dry heat and dust in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean at Rio Azul, our serene beach lodge in a secluded tropical haven near Vilanculos in Mozambique. Kick your shoes off and unwind in the comfort of the lodge, or spend your days exploring any of the 3 unique ecosystems: Ocean, Mangrove Forest and the blue waters of the lagoon in your own private skip. Or choose from a variety of available activities such as kayaking, snorkelling, dhow trips and beach picnics in the turquoise archipelago.

Vilanculos, Mozambique

Overnight: Rio Azul Lodge
Spend the remainder of your days with your toes in the sand discovering the unique charm of Mozambique and its tropical delights.

Explore the blue lagoon on your private tinnie boat or glide across the calm water on a kayak, discover the hidden secrets of the mangrove forest, and look out for rare marine life such as sea turtles. You will have the opportunity to live out your desert island fantasies on a trip to one that is home only to pink flamingos and pretty pansy shells. Whether it’s relaxation or adventure you seek, both will be found in abundance.
