This Robinson Crusoe style adventure takes you to some of the most unspoilt parts of Africa's coastline, though in rather more comfort than that enjoyed by Mr Crusoe! The seas take your breath away with a kaleidoscope of blues which reveal myriad life beneath the surface. Enjoy barefoot luxury in some of the best retreats in the Quirimbas Archipelago.

Day 1 - Arrive in Pemba, Mozambique

Transfer by road and boat to Londo Lodge, set amidst lush tropical foliage and idyllic beaches. This private lodge comprises of six extremely spacious octagonal shaped villas. Constructed from bamboo and thatch, the structures are positioned high up on the cliffs, overlooking the majestic Pemba Bay. Each villa is air-conditioned with, en-suite facilites, hand made taps, and large showers that merge with the outdoors. The interior is decorated with traditional Moroccan art, featuring traditional Maconde woodcraft and Victorian mirrors. The seating areas consist of teak decking that can be accessed through wide louvered doors. Equipped with a Spa, a cliff edge swimming pool that seems to flow into the ocean and a totally private beach this is the perfect place to unwind.

Day 5 - Pemba - Ibo Island

Transfer by boat and by road to Pemba airport, where you will be transferred by light aircraft to Ibo Island. Ibo Island lies in the Quirimbas Archipelago National Park in northern Mozambique. The lodge itself follows the style and architecture of the original ruins of the age - old plantations of Ibo Mansions. With metre thick coral and lime walls, wide verandas, and lofty ceilings bearing original beams, the structure is impressive. The nine rooms are simple yet elegant in design and each room comes with air conditioning, ceiling fans and its own en-suite bathroom with a large walk in shower. Furnished almost entirely with locally made furniture, the rooms are stylish, light and airy.

Overnight: Ibo Island Lodge.
