What to Expect on This Safari
This popular itinerary can be customised to match your budget and travel dates by adding/removing a few days or selecting different lodges
The town of Vilankulo has grown exponentially over the last 10 years due to a solid increase in tourism hence it’s a great destination for a rugged yet luxurious African honeymoon. The town itself is only 5km long making navigating your way to the best beach spots of the area a breeze.
Fly from Maputo to Vilanculous, where you will be met by the staff from Dugong Lodge and assisted to the boat that will transfer you to the lodge. You may need to wade a bit in the water to get to the boat, so be sure to wear appropriate waterproof clothing.
On arrival at the lodge, once you have checked in, the rest of the day is for you to enjoy at your leisure.
Dugong Beach Lodge
The next six days are to be spent entirely at your leisure, so do as much or as little as you wish. There are quite a few optional activities (costs not included) that you can do as part of the experience.
On site activities are the following: sundowner cruises on a traditional Dhow, beach walks, snorkelling, kayaking and massage treatments and a Hobie Cat which is a type of miniature sailing catamaran. A nature drive in the Sanctuary is a must, which showcases the local animals and birds, like Blue Wildebeest, Plains Zebra, Giraffe, various types of buck, as well as Pelicans and Flamingos.
Island excursions, deep sea fishing, visits to the local fishing village and snorkeling are other additional activities to keep you busy.
Or you could just lie on the beautiful beaches, soaking up the sun and reading the novels you've been meaning to catch up on.
End of honeymoon
Make your way back to Vilanculous and Maputo with the boat ride and flights the same as your arrival arrangements. Once you are back in Maputo, connect with your onward arrangements.
Please note: Return flights from Maputo have been included, but we are able to change this, depending on your travel arrangements.
