Beasts and beach in magnificent Mozambique

24th November 2010 Print

If safari and beach combinations are the ultimate African holiday, then this must be the perfect combination...

Sand Rivers Safari is based in the heart of the Selous which straddles Southern Tanzania and Northern Mozambique and offers guests an utterly unique safari experience. Deliciously luxurious and utterly private open sided bedrooms and suites nestle into the riverbank. As well as outstanding jeep based game viewing, guests can take river safaris' where extraordinary proximity to wildlife is possible due to the protection of the water, particularly from the big cats coming to drink at the water's edge. The cuisine is mouthwatering, the vibe is sophisticated and spoiling yet unpretentious and the wildlife is quite spectacular.

After indulging in your safari dreams it's time to crash and where better to move to than perfectly complementary Vamizi Island, Mozambique. 13 spectacular private villas nestle over 70 metres apart with unrivalled views of the Indian Ocean. This is a corner of Mozambique, reserved thus far for those 'in the know'. Sea breezes whisper through latticed windows and cushion stuffed day beds are surrounded by billowing muslins and acres of teak decking. After the early starts and excitement of a safari it's time to relax and unwind as the warm seas lap the white sand beach, take a breath and lie back - you're on island time.
