Southern Mozambique

The Southern Mozambique coastline, from Ponta d’Ouro, with its pounding surf and windswept dunes to the shallow coastal lakes, serene lagoons and beautiful stretches of beaches are simply stunning. The legendary beaches of Tofo and Barra are home to a handful of gorgeous, luxurious lodges which deliver first world hospitality, superb seafood fare and squeaky clean, deserted beaches.   

As well as being famed for its beaches, the region also offers a wealth of culture highlights including the famed ‘timbila (marimba) orchestras of the Chopi people and rich traditional lore, much of which focuses on the old kingdom of Gaza.

In the capital, Maputo - one of Africa’s prettiest and most personable capitals - you can sample the lively local nightlife, peruse the enormous Municipal Market or feast on fresh king prawns along the seaside Avenida Marginal. Just a couple of hours out of the city, the port town of Imhambane has some intriguing old Portuguese architecture, as well as a wide lagoon where you can take a dhow over to the neighbouring village of Maxixe.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.
Lewis Carrol

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
