Hotel Overview


The islands of the Quirimbas Archipelago in Northern Mozambique.


Each night your camp staff will put up basic dome tents with camp beds. There are eco loos and even hot showers on request.  If you peek out of your tent at night you’ll see more stars than you could ever count, and in the morning you’ll wake to the tropical sunshine- what more could you need?

Food and Facilities

An adventure with Exsus means that you certainly don’t go hungry. The camp chef travels on board with you, and each night, as you sit around the campfire with a cold drink, he’ll be busy producing a scrumptious seafood dinner for you. You can eat in the dining tent, or sit back, dig your toes into the sand, and dine under the stars.


Paddle from island to island in your canoe, or lie back and let a dhow do the work for you. Watch the sun set over uninhabited islands, and have lunch on deserted sandbanks. Snorkel in crystal clear waters, see jewel-coloured birds flitting amongst the mangroves, and trail a line for fish.  Island hopping isn’t just about the beaches though- this is an extraordinary cultural journey, and as part of your voyage you’ll stop in sleepy fishing villages where life’s barely changed for centuries.
