DAY 4 – 9
From Victoria Falls you will fly to Pemba Airport in Mozambique where you will be privately transferred via Helicopter to Quilalea Island. Azura at Quilalea is a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style that belies the comforts and experiences on offer. Azura at Quilalea is an Eco-Boutique Retreat. Whilst the Quirimbas Archipelago stretch from Pemba to the Northern border with Tanzania, only the very southern part of the archipelago, where Quilalea is located, forms a fully protected marine sanctuary.
In keeping with the uninhabited nature of the island, the retreat consists of only nine seafront villas, accommodating eighteen guests. The villas are built from natural coral stone and makuti thatch, and have all been revamped to increase comfort and make better use of the interior space, with natural finishings, indoor/outdoor showers, private decks stretching out to the beach, daybeds and sun-loungers for relaxing. Guests can choose between three categories of villa: 4 Sunrise Villas, 4 Sunset Villas, and Villa Quilalea. The cliff-top Villa Quilalea offers the most astounding accommodation for a couple in the whole archipelago, with a private plunge pool, feature bathroom & dressing room, an outdoor shower, and its own separate sitting/dining area.
This is paradise for lovers of marine life, with superb snorkelling and world class scuba diving available straight off the main beach. Watch as pods of dolphins cruise past your sun deck, or look out for humpback whales or nesting turtles in season. Kayaking through the mangroves on nearby Sencar Island is not to be missed, or go deep-sea fishing for tuna or king mackerel to barbeque fresh that evening. Enjoy romantic beach and baobob grove picnics, or candle lit dinners on the beach beneath the stars. Visit nearby Ibo Island, the cultural highlight in the area, or simply relax at the cliff-top African Spa. This is the ultimate private luxury hideaway, in a stunning undiscovered location.
