SMALL GROUPS. BIG ADVENTURES

Let your adventure become nature’s saving grace

On the coastline of Northern Mozambique there is a hidden, unheard of, colorful village, -the village of Pebane. Starting your travels on gravel roads to its remote grounds once you jump off the plane, is where the adventure really begins. Upon arrival you’ll pass through markets where you can appreciate the vibrant mozambican livelihood. As you approach the east, the lush green mangroves take over the landscape connecting to the refined white shores that overwhelm you into the different shades of blue the water reflects. Pebane invites you to come in with an open mind and adventurous spirit, to feel the gifts of a natural sanctuary.

My team will be going to Loggerhead Lodge in Machangulo either by boat or by road via the Elephant Reserve until the 15th of November. Anyone that wishes to come to Loggerhead or Villa Ukuthual is most welcome - cost $200 per person per night including all meals (www.villaukuthula.com or www.loggerheadlodge.com) - we will be spending the morning in Maputo though.

 

There are many other options to add on either before or after the trip, idf there is anything specific let me know and we can set it up. I will aslo send some other very unique options with Zeekoepan in KZN and Macdonald Safaris in Mozambique - either will work very well before or after the Pebane trip.

Some of what awaits you...

MOZAMBIQUE

A country of unparalleled beauty

Adventure

Take an educational kayaking trip to the mangrove forest where you are invited to learn about its complex root system. If weather permits you’re invited to journey into sea to a remote island, ‘Ilha do Fogo’, in the Primeiras e Segundas archipelago dedicated to turtle conservation. To end the day take a relaxing swim in the Indian ocean and indulge in fresh seafood at the lodge. Live the story that you will love to share with others and always treasure for yourself!

CULTURE​

A land full of ancestral traditions which can seem mystical to many of us. We value and exchange ideas with the local community so we can co-create a more socially, ecologically and economically sustainable future together. There is nothing better than cultural exchange to expand worldviews. Because of COVID-19, activities within the community of Pebane will be planned according to government regulations and adhering to strict COVID-19 protocols. Local staff form part of the Fire Island team so you will always have the chance for chats and intercultural exchange.

Nature

Research suggests that over 450 species of coral exist in the region, making it a safe sanctuary for a significantly diverse marine life that depends on this underwater tropical forest to thrive. Fragile yet resilient, it is a place that welcomes all curious minds to explore, respect and learn about its rich biodiversity including, but not limited to, the Hawksbill turtle, Leatherback turtle and Cow-nose rays which are all endangered species. Hence significant conservation efforts are being made as we strive to support the local community in creating an alternative source of income and sustainable agriculture allowing the ocean time to rejuvenate from overfishing.
