At the age of 58 I thought I had seen and done my remote/adventure travelling however by the most wonderful of circumstances I found myself on the totally gorgeous and enchanting Ilha de Mozambique, where I was introduced to the island and all its splendour by Ilha Blue. A tourist operator that is like a social enterprise as they always put the locals first both with training and jobs. It was with Ilha Blue under a local that I toured the island by bike, learning about the history, the people and the architecture.. Next day with Ilha Blue sailed by dhow to the mainland where I swam in a crystal clear lagoon, sat under a Baobab tree eating fresh caught fish and coconut rice followed by a walk through a fishing village, fabulous all with our local guide who not only provided information but cooked the amazing lunch. You can tell the managers, Gail and Pete, love the island and that shows in all they provide and all they think of for each tour, their professionalism and their humour make for a great mix they sure made me feel young again and ready for more. I truly recommend them to anyone of any age visiting the island.
