1. Dune Forest Trails.

You are not limited to just strolling on the beach! We are situated in a coastal forest and there are stunning walks where one can explore the inland areas, Ponta Chemokine, and go for a Game Drive. Whether you are a keen birder who would like to spot an elusive feathered friend or you just want to take a relaxing stroll to the nearby lake and view the resident Hippos there are plenty of options for you. If you prefer you can explore by yourself, just ask for directions, or a guide can accompany you to show you the route.

2. Beach Walks.

With miles of stunning unspoiled coastline north and south of our bay, you can walk as far as you like and are unlikely to come across another soul. There are some beautiful ocean and sunset viewpoints atop some of the world’s highest coastal dunes.

3. Ocean Safari.

Go on a safari experience with a difference! Set sail on a purpose-designed boat for a 2-hour leisurely cruise along the coastline in search of marine animals big and small. Dolphins are frequent visitors to our shores, as are turtles and the occasional Whale shark and manta Ray.

Depending on the circumstances and the behavior of the animal it may also be possible to enter the water and interact with some of these magnificent creatures. In-season humpback whales can also be encountered up close and personal during their annual migration. Subject to sea conditions. Participants must be able to swim.

4. Turtle Nesting Walks (Seasonal)

From late October to late January each year we are exceptionally privileged to witness the nesting of both Loggerhead and Leatherback turtles. The emergence of the hatchlings occurs from December through to late March. Anvil Bay participates in the turtle monitoring program and guests can take a guided turtle tour where with luck you’ll be able to view turtles laying their eggs. Leatherback Turtle and Loggerhead Turtle

5. Whale Watching (Seasonal)!

From July to November every year the Southern Hemisphere Humpback Whales make their annual migration along the Mozambican coastline on their way to and from their winter breeding grounds. Keep an eye out for the tell-tale blow as they surface to breathe, or perhaps you will be lucky enough to witness them breaching lob tailing or pec rolling.

The whales can be easily sighted directly from shore but if you would like to get a closer look then join us for an Ocean safari in season.

Day 6: All Meals Included.

Maputo (previously called Lourenco Marques) is the sprawling capital of Mozambique with a population of about two million people and a large harbor. Under Portuguese influence, Lourenzo Marques became one of Africa's most beautiful and fashionable cities with an impressive skyline of tall buildings and a cosmopolitan Portuguese/African atmosphere.

We will visit the Praca, the star-shaped structure in the center of the plaza that holds the remains of Mozambique's revolutionary and post-independence heroes. The most important landmark is the Fort of Nossa Senhora da Conceiao (Our Lady of Conception), which was the nucleus of the original settlement. Another imposing building is the Central Railway Station, an enormous structure that looks more like a palace for kings than a siding for commuters. We also visit the Central Market and the Museum of Natural History.

An interesting and instructive aspect of Maputo is its public art, largely focused on revolutionary themes and often expressed as a mural. Many of the city's murals were painted following independence from Portugal. This new period was marked by spontaneity, and many colorful and complex murals were painted, the most famous of which is the 95m (285 ft) long mural opposite the Praca dos Herois Mocambicanos, commemorating the Revolution.

We also include a walking tour through Mafalala Bairro, which focuses on exploring the area’s rich historical and cultural roots. It includes a stop at a local Curandeiro (healer) and possibly a traditional dance performance.

Experience the nightlife in Maputo, with a local guide and taste traditional Mozambican food, going out and visiting a Pub or local Tavern is a must!

Overnight in Maputo.

Day 7: All Meals Included! Domestic Flight

This morning we depart for the Domestic flight to Beira from where we transfer by road to Gorongosa National Park- 4 hours. Book into the lodge, have a healthy lunch and go for a game walk. The rehabilitation of Gorongosa National Park in Central Mozambique represents one of the great conservation opportunities in the world today. Gorongosa is a region of high species diversity and ecological features found nowhere else. The 4067 square kilometer Park is located at the southern end of the Great East African Rift Valley. The park includes the valley floor and parts of surrounding plateaus.

Rivers originating on nearby 1862-meter Mount Gorongosa water the plain. Gorongosa National Park offers something for everyone interested in African wildlife and spectacular scenery. There is a lion, elephant, buffalo, and many kinds of antelope, with frequent sightings of sable, impala, oribi, bushbuck, reedbuck, kudu, nyala, waterbuck, and (less frequently) zebra, hartebeest, and eland. Lake Urema and its waterways support healthy populations of crocodiles and hippos. Trained guides take us on game-viewing drives, traversing various ecosystems, including floodplains, forests, and lowland savanna.

Overnight at Gorongosa National Park.

Day 8: All Meals Included!

We have an early morning game drive followed by a walk and boat ride to the community of Vinho. It is a 30-45-minute walk to the Pungue River, with some birding along the way. At the Pungue River, there will be a short trip in a small boat and along the way, we will greet many of the park's employees. We will also visit the new school and hospital that has been recently built in the community.

Overnight at Gorongosa National Park.

Day 9: All Meals Included!

Today we drive back to Beira and head back to central Mozambique.

Beira is Mozambique's second-largest city and an important port. Known as the 'heart of Mozambique' it is situated halfway up the coast in Sofala province at the mouth of the Pungoe River. Although run down and neglected, the buildings have a Mediterranean style and the infrastructure of the city is being re-established after years of neglect and abuse. Travel time permitting, we may be able to have a panoramic look at Beira before settling in for the night.

Overnight in Maputo.
