Day 7, Maputo to Inhambane

From Maputo we drive to Inhambane, the old European settlement. Here the white sand beaches are waiting for you and the moment you step out the truck you can feel the laid back vibe hanging in the air. If that's not enough you will also be spoiled with a traditional Mozambique meal.

Day 8, Inhambane

A free day to enjoy some of the optional activities available. Try your hand at Scuba Diving, Quad Biking, Fishing, Horse Riding or take a Boat Cruise on the bay. If that sounds like too much work then just relax on the white sand beaches with a good book or your journal.
