Overview

Anantara Medjumbe is a luxurious offering located on Medjumbe Island, a tiny island in the Indian Ocean which is just one kilometre long and three hundred metres wide; this island is one of over thirty that make up the Quirimbas Archipelago, a chain of islands off the northeastern coast of Mozambique.

The accommodation consists of a dozen pristine, handsomely-furnished beachside villas. Each villa offers picturesque Indian Ocean views and direct beach access, along with a viewing deck with a seating area, sun loungers and a private plunge pool. There’s also a private outdoor shower, with the en-suite bathroom offering both an indoor shower and a separate bathtub. Villas are air conditioned and come with a ceiling fan. Other amenities include a minibar, tea and coffee making facilities and a TV with satellite channels.

The resort has its own oceanside swimming pool and a full-service spa. The main restaurant is Jahazi which serves international cuisine for three meals a day; nearby is the Bahari Lounge Bar, where all sorts of refreshing drinks can be purchased. In-villa dining is available on request, as is ‘Dining By Design’, a private dining experience for two in scenic al fresco surroundings.

For those looking to explore the area further, there’s a broad range of activities and excursions on offer. Scuba diving courses are particularly popular, since the waters surrounding the island house an impressive collection of reefs teeming with colourful marine life. Water sports such as knee-boarding and wakeboarding are readily available, while calmer activities such as paddle boarding, sailing and kayaking are also on offer. One of the most popular offerings is the sunset cruise, which gives guests the chance to watch the beautiful sunset while out at sea in a traditional dhow boat. Island hopping tours are also well received. From August to October, humpback whales can be found in the vicinity and whale-watching expeditions provide the opportunity observe these majestic animals in their natural habitat.

While there is no designated child activity programme or babysitting service, children are welcome and there is plenty for all age groups to do on the island. Parents are reminded, due to the waterside nature of the accommodation, to keep their children under constant adult supervision.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
