Experience six blissful days enjoying the tranquility of one of Mozambique's finest Indian Ocean jewels: Medjumbe Island. This classic 'desert island' destination forms part of the Quirimbas Archipelago - a collection of mostly uninhabited islands lying off the remote north coast of Mozambique.

Spend your time at Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa soaking up the sunshine and stretch your legs on long, lazy beach walks but there's plenty to do if you are feeling more active: go snorkelling or scuba diving off gorgeous coral reefs, try your hand at fishing or explore the island's tropical vegetation and see if you can spot a monkey or two.

It's the ideal destination for a get-away-from-it-all beach holiday or honeymoon and combines perfectly with a Big 5 safari in South Africa.

Up arrow
Quirimbas Archipelago, Mozambique

Start your Indian Ocean adventure with a flight from Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport to Pemba Airport on Mozambique's north coast. You then transfer to Medjumbe Island and wonderful Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa where you have time to settle in, grab a cold drink and start planning the next few days ahead.

Days 2-5: Explore the exotic island

Up arrow

Enjoy everything Medjumbe Island has to offer over the next four full days. The resort offers exciting water-based activities ranging from fishing excursions and watersports to fantastic scuba diving and snorkelling off some of the most amazing coral reefs in the Indian Ocean.

Slowly succumb to the languid pace of island life: explore the forests that surround the island for birds and monkeys; take leisurely strolls along beautiful white beaches; enjoy a pampering spa or beauty treatment; or simply laze at the sparkling swimming pool on a day bed.

And when the sun goes down, enjoy sunset cocktails and delicious seafood dishes prepared by expert chefs before retiring to your secluded beach villa.

Day 6: Say farewell to Medjumbe

Up arrow

After breakfast you will be transferred from Anantara Medjumbe Resort & Spa back to Pemba Airport where you will return to Johannesburg and continue with your onward arrangements.
