Location
Situated on the southern Peninsular of Pemba, close to the Quirimbas National Park, Diamonds Mequfi Beach, is a luxury 5 star Resort built on the sandy dunes of the stunning Mecufi Bay. The Resort lies at about one hour drive from the international airport of Pemba which is connected to South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania with 3 to 4 flights a week and daily flights to the capital city of Maputo. Diamonds Mequfi Beach is a one hour drive from Pemba airport. A transfer service to and from the resort and airport is available.

Mozambique, a former Portuguese colony which gained independence in 1975, is now a state of East Africa with a population of around 25.2 million residents. The capital is Maputo and the state borders to the north with Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia; to the east with the Mozambique Channel which divides it from Madagascar; to the south with South Africa; to the west with Zimbabwe and Swaziland. Mozambique is considered a developing country which is emerging as an exclusive and exceptional destination for its unspoilt landscapes.

From the second half of the nineties, Mozambique moved to establish protected areas, creating national parks and nature reserves. The wildlife in this area is very diverse, notable examples being the Old World monkeys and certain lemurs, but also lions, leopards and jackals. There is no shortage of elephants, rhinoceros, zebras, buffalo and antelopes of various species such as wildebeest, antelopes and giraffes. For nature and animal lovers this is an exceedingly rich destination, yet you will also find friendly and welcoming locals and enchanting beaches, colonial towns and hut villages, baobab and mangrove forests and unspoilt archipelagos.

National Parks in Mozambique
Ngorongosa Park is considered one of the most important safari destinations and offers spectacular scenes of the diverse eco-systems represented in the park: huge plains interrupted by patches of acacia trees, expanses of savanna, forests and season water basins. Inside the park it is possible to observe a thriving wildlife composed of herbivores, carnivores and birds. Depending on the time of year it is possible to choose different activities through which to discover the park’s beauty based on the weather conditions: the months between July and September are the best for photographic safaris whilst in the wet season, when the plains are flooded and inaccessible, the park can be explored by canoe or mekoro log boats. In the park it is common to spot herds of elephants and buffalo, wildebeest, kudu, hartebeest, zebras, impala, monkeys and baboons. If you wish to see hippopotamuses and crocodiles, simply head for the shores of Lake Urema. The park also offers excellent bird-watching possibilities. It is possible to plan a fully tailored journey with the park’s guides to make your experience of Mozambique even more rare and unique.

The Quirimbas National Park extends along the north-east coast of Mozambique and covers 750,639 hectares of coastal and mangrove forests, thriving coral reefs and a rich marine life including sea turtles, dugongs and hundreds of species of fish. The park was founded in 2002 to protect the region’s natural resources.

Unspoilt Mozambique Beaches
Mozambique has a coastline extending for 2,500 km, composed of the coasts lapped by the warm currents of the Indian Ocean, well-preserved coral reefs, mangroves and a niche tourism industry which makes this destination one of the most exclusive in the Indian Ocean. Mozambique is home to some of Africa’s most beautiful beaches.
