A small group Mozambique multi activity tour for those wanting to relax, have fun, and get a taste of Mozambican marine and
beach life. This tour starts and ends in Eswatini and heads to Ponta do Ouro in the south of Mozambique, travelling back through South Africa.
The highlight of this Ponta do Ouro budget beach break adventure is the dolphin encounters, which adhere to responsible wildlife interaction standards which you will learn about in your briefing. You will join two ocean safaris looking for wild dolphins and enjoying up close encounters.
You will also take a walk up the dunes to the lighthouse and marvel at the ocean vistas, truly amazing as the sun is setting. There is free time for you to wander around the quaint beach cafes and sample delicious Afro-Portuguese cuisine or explore the curio stalls in the market.
And for the more active, why not book a surf lesson. This is a great long weekend getaway or trip extension for visitors to Eswatini where the driving is done for you and your guide will introduce you to the highlights of the resort so you can make the most of your time at the beach.
