"On one of Africa's finest and most remote private islands, Vamizi competes with Mnemba for the title of Africa's best beach lodge. It is a logistical challenge to put into any safari itinerary, but the rewards are endless. Outstanding."

*Unfortunately, Vamizi Island Lodge is within an area of Mozambique that the FCO is advising against travel to, but given the remote location of this island and it's distance from problem areas, we are hoping that this will be short lived. So although we are not selling this property at the moment, we hope to be doing so very shortly. If you would like to speak to one of our consultants for more up to date information, please don't hesitate to contact us.*  


Barefoot in style, the lodge epitomises the ultra-relaxed ‘no shoes, no news’ ethos. Vamizi is the beach lodge seemingly ‘in vogue’ for VIPs wanting to get away from it all. Visitors tend to feel like the first people to have set foot here. In fact we would go a little bit further than that and say that this is as good as beaches and beach lodges get – an absolutely outstanding lodge!


Vamizi occupies a large island in the north of Mozambique’s phenomenal Quirimbas Archipelago, which consists of 32 coral islands stretching 100 km. This island is one of the remotest areas we offer in Africa. 


The accommodation is very high end. There are 13 luxurious beach villas, each with huge bedrooms and fabulous bathrooms leading out to private lounges and large decking areas. Two of the villas are ideal for families or two couples, with two spacious bedrooms and a large common area. Vamizi also offers three villas that form their exclusive Private Villa Collection. Sleeping up to 16 people these three villas provide the ultimate hideaway and are perfect for larger families or small groups. Needless to say, service levels are set extremely high.

**For families with children under the age of 6 years, we would not recommend this property for safety reasons, due to the balconies.**


  • Untouched beaches and uncharted coral reefs are the breeding grounds of turtles and home to some of the best diving spots in the world, while whales swim up the deeper channels.
  • Other activities include snorkelling, swimming and deep sea fishing, all to an excellent standard.
