Mozambique, Africa

For a little R & R after your safari before you head back to the daily grind. And, really Off the Beaten Path-Two or three nights at Benguerra Lodge on Benguerra Island, a tropical island resort off the Western coast of Mozambique on the Indian Ocean on a palm fringed bay. The island is the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago (the largest marine preserve in the Indian Ocean), and the island was declared a national park in 1971 and is a World Heritage Site. This chain of 5 islands that comprise the archipelago broke away from the African continent 25,000 years ago. Mozambique was once a Portuguese colony, but now its beautiful, pristine beaches and turquoise waters are attracting international travelers.

Talk about paradise. There are pristine beaches surrounded by coral reefs. The island is only inhabited by about 800 fishermen, and is truly a nature preserve with pristine forests, inland freshwater lakes with amazing birding, and coral reefs for snorkeling. The reefs are filled with amazing fish and coral formations. You may see manta rays, Zambezi sharks, dolphins, turtles and the endangered dugong. Think Finding Nemo, but in Mozambique.

Plan on spending your days in Mozambique on the beach, windsurfing, snorkeling, kayaking, beach picnics, sailing, horseback riding, fishing for marlin or bonefish, or watching the sunset on a dhow. Another great activity is to take a traditional Arab dhow cruise to see the beautiful flamingo population on the island. The weather is hot and sunny year round with minimal rainfall. Your meals will have a Portuguese flavor, prepared with fresh seafood daily.
