Day 1: Maputo to Xai-Xai (240 km)

Our guide will meet you at a pre-arranged pick up point in Maputo. (Border pickup is also possible at additional cost). You then make your way to the town of Xai-Xai.

Xai-Xai is located on the banks of the Limpopo river. It is the capital city of the Gaza Province in the south of Mozambique. This bustling town has several amenities including markets, shops, restaurants, bars, petrol stations banks and a post office.

There are a number of fresh water lakes within half an hours drive where activities such as kayaking, paddle skiing and windsurfing are possible. Wenela Tidal Pool, two kilometres south, is a fascinating marvel having a natural tunnel and blow hole linking the pool to the ocean.

40 km north of Xai Xai is the lovely sea-side lodge called Zona Braza. Here you will spend 2 nights.

Day 2: Xai-Xai activities

After a scrumptious breakfast you can spend the day enjoying the pristine beaches and partake in activities  such as beach walks or bird watching. 

Xai Xai Beaches

Fishing charters along the Mozambican coastline are exceptional  and Xai Xai is also considered among the top destinations for rock rock fishing, surf fishing as well as lure and drop shot fishing. The Bazaruto Archipelago is, in fact, recognised as one of the best destinations in the world for black marlin. Fishing charters can be arranged in advance (own cost). 

Whale watching is also possible from the decks of the lodge. Southern Right and Humpback Whales are the most common migratory whales spotted in the warm Mozambique waters. Best time for whale watching is  during the winter months from June to October when they arrive to calve in the safety of the Indian Ocean waters.

The massive reef running parallel to the beach provides natural protection against the strong waves at high tide and forms several small pools at low tide. At low tide, the reefs are invaded by women and children gathering shellfish, which they sell to appreciative tourists. The reef also offers excellent snorkeling.

Sea turtles lay their eggs on the beaches between December and February - a fascinating spectacle not to be missed

Bird watching is another popular activity in this area.

Dinner and overnight in Zona Braza.


Breakfast and dinner is included.
