MOZAMBIQUE

AZURA QUILALEA is an unexpected piece of paradise. This uninhabited one-square-kilometre island is part of the Quirimbas Archipelago, a collection of 31 islands, about 10 kilometres from the mainland and an adventurous coastal destination. This is an African ocean safari like no other and the perfect combination with safaris in Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Botswana and Zambia.

OCEAN SAFARI

Discover marine life and underwater gardens - go kayaking, diving or snorkelling; witness green, hawksbill and leatherback turtles nesting or hatching; see humpback whales breeching; observe around 134 bird species and learn about the giant baobab trees on the island.

The Quilalea house reef is accessed directly from the beach in front of the bar and perfect for snorkelling and night dives.

Tanzania

WHAT WE LOVE: This low-key, unassuming country is also home to some of Africa’s most famed tourist destinations: Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Kilimanjaro, and Zanzibar. While most visitors will congregate at these undeniably exotic spots, Tanzania has many other hidden natural, historical and cultural gems; including 19th-century caravan routes, once-famed ports of call for Oriental merchant ships, ancient rock paintings, Africa’s largest protected natural area (Selous), as well as prime destinations for seeing chimpanzees in the wild. All this is held together by the beauty and dignity of over 100 ethnic groups that live amicably in Tanzania.
