My Trip | Honeymooning in Ponta Mamoli, Mozambique

White Pearl Resorts | Mozambique

Where honeymoons are concerned it’s not about the location, it’s about the couple. Harrison Ford’s character in Six Days, Seven Nights agreed. He was referring to romance when he declared, “It’s an island, babe. If you didn’t bring it here, you won’t find it here.” All I need to rebut this argument is three words: […]

The White Pearl of Mozambique

Ponta Mamoli White Pearl | Mozambique

If you’re going to listen to Robert Frost and take the ‘road less travelled,’ then forget Thailand, forsake Greece, laugh off Hawaii and while you’re scratching off destinations that have been done, redone and then over-done, bypass Spain and Bali. As the great man said, it’ll make “all the difference.” We know what you’re wondering: […]

Wreck diving

There is something terribly exciting about losing yourself in the crumbling carcass of a shipwreck. Each wreck is tale of storms and scuttled hulls.

How To Play Island Castaway – Coral Lodge 15.41, Mozambique

Sail in Robinson Crusoe style

Island Dreamin’ We arrived at Coral Lodge 15.41 by dhow, setting the scene for our Mozambique island getaway. Conditions were perfect as we sailed into the lodge.

Wish You Were Here! – Postcards from the Indian Ocean Islands

Hammock in Mauritius

Look at all the pretty pictures! Sometimes writing about a destination just won’t do it justice. Sure if you’re a master of the pen and your descriptions rival those of the Bard himself, that’s perfect. Unfortunately our esteemed writer and resident master of the written word, Tamlin is currently out of the office. This leaves the task to me and I’m still struggling too, to, two learn the difference, if you get my drift. So instead I’ve put together a visual feast showcasing the Indian Ocean Islands. The Indian Ocean is the third largest body of water in the world and nestled in its warm waters are some of Rhino Africa’s most romantic destinations.
