Package Itinerary

Today we pick you up in your lodge and have a tour of Ilha de Mozambique.

The island in itself is not very big, about 3 km long and between 200 and 500 metre wide. Most historical buildings are at the island's northern end. The majority of the residents live in reed houses in Makuti Town at the southern end of the island. We have the full day here to explore this tiny island on foot with its collection of historic buildings. The Palace and Chapel of São Paulo, built in 1610 as a Jesuit College and subsequently used as the Governor's Residence, is now a museum. The Museum of Sacred Art, housed in the Church of the Misericórdia run by the House of Mercy, displays an excellent Makonde crucifix. Other historic buildings include the Church of Santo António, the Church of the Misericórdia, and the Chapel of Nossa Senhora de Baluarte. The island, now entirely urbanised, is also home to several mosques and a Hindu temple.

During our time here, we will also board the Arab style dhow boats to explore one of the neighbouring islands and spend time in the local town then be transferred again in your lodge.
