"This is adventure safari travel at its best!"


This activity is a combination of a dhow safari with sea kayaking and enables you to go sailing up wide coastal river mouths packed with red listed bird species and unspoiled mangrove forests, all over the Quirimbas Archipelago. This is the ultimate activity for adventurers. Snorkel off empty white sandbanks into azure waters and nap in portable Eco fly camps on unpopulated tropical islands.dhow3

Go sailing in tranquil, peaceful, flawless and turquoise water with white traditional dhow sails to break up the endless view on the horizon.Pick between a Dhow, kayak or dive safari – or a combo of everything. These safaris are run by a pro guide who is very knowledgeable and highly experienced in these waters, and travel on a stunning 12 meter dhow built to Arab designs with Mozambican skipper, crew and chef on board. A team to whip up seafood extravaganzas around the camp fire is also there!
