There is literally something for everyone to do here.... Fishing for the boys, horseriding, beach, island trips, swimming pool. Seafood platters to die for. Bar with a stunning view. Lovely fully equipped Casa.

We travelled by car from Harare to Archipelago Resort, in Vilanculos to attend my son's wedding. We stayed overnight at Casa Msika just 45km from the Zim border and then left the next morning to catch the convoy at Muxungue, which took us through to Save River Bridge (110km) - a 3 hr journey!!!!

Both families pretty much took over the resort and the staff were very helpful all week and the food was delicious. The lodges are equipped for self catering but majority of us ate three meals a day in the restaurant and I...

Great accommodation, very impressive Casa's (QUALITY self catering wooden villas) overlooking the beach and beautiful turquoise ocean. Management went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our week-long stay. Restaurant was great. Wifi, laundry service available. Very comfortable sleep, no holes in mosquito nets, only noise if the gentle sound of wind in the palm trees. Safe for children,...
