Medjumbe Island

Chilling in the sunshine

How do you like the sound of a luxury villa on a sliver of sand surrounded by a pale green, transparent ocean? You share your island with a team of gourmet chefs, smiling bar staff always on hand to mix your favourite cocktails and perhaps a dozen or so guests with the same good fortune.

Of course this is not "typical" Mozambique but Matemo and Medjumbe islands really are an experience to savour. There are few, if any, places quite like this in the world and this lovely, friendly country is still an incredibly well-kept secret. If you want to make somebody feel very special Rani should be your first port of call.
