Top Travel explores Mozambique
This week on Top Travel our two intrepid travelers take their final African journey in our penultimate episode of this season!
Join Jeannie and Janez as they embark on a trip across the boarder to beautiful Mozambique where their adventure begins in the luxurious Polana Serena Hotel. Created by famous British architect, Sir Herbert Baker, the hotel boasts a bygone beauty and sophistication which is hard to find anywhere in the world!
They then venture to the town to find out what treasures the capital city has on offer and are astonished to discover the Maputo Railway Station which was not only featured in the epic film 'Blood Diamond' but is also rumored to be one of the most beautiful stations in the world! It is then off to the spectacular Iron House which was designed Gustave Eiffel, who also created the Eiffel Tower in Paris! Although very eye-catching his creation in Maputo has one massive design flaw… stepping inside it is like entering a sauna!
No exploration of a new city can be complete without some shopping and Jeannie and Janez are enthralled at the abundance of colours and fabrics at the clothing markets and the size of the prawns at the fish markets!
There is so much to see and do in this vibrant city and as our intrepid travelers moved onto their next destination they were filled with great expectations… and were not left disappointed. The spectacular White Pearl Ponta Mamoli Resort is the stuff dreams are made of with kilometers of white beaches and secluded luxury chalets nestled amongst the tropical foliage.
With great waves and beautiful snorkeling spots Janez and Jeannie are in heaven and can hardly believe that this secluded piece of paradise is such a short distance away from bustling Maputo.
Janez, who is always ready for the next adventure, packs his bags and takes a short trip to the breathtaking Bazaruto Archipelago, a group of six islands just off the mainland city of Vilankulo. He is met with even more beautiful beaches, coral reefs and numerous awesome activities including horse back riding in the ocean and an eventful trip to Paradise island in search of the elusive Dugongs.
Don't miss this awesome episode as we discover the treasure that is Mozambique… right on our doorstep!
