Happy African Wedding Week! Ready to spoil you with secret travel gems & luxurious stays throughout Africa, it’s time we point our spotlight on the incredible, ultimate beach wedding destination: Mozambique!

Mozambique sits comfortably at the top of my list for dreamy beach vacations. By the end of this editorial, you’ll be pining for sun-soaked days on the Indian Ocean as well.

Yesterday, we introduced you to Mwai Yeboah, founder of the incredible organization uplifting African wedding vendors, Exalt Africa. This summer, her team – which includes the world-renowned designer & stylist Joy Proctor – embarked on a quest to Anantara Bazaruto Island, to show off what a dream beach destination Mozambique truly is.

Imagine tropical palms waving over miles-long stretches of unspoiled soft white sands. Whales & dolphins in attendance for your intimate ceremony. Remarkable dunes perfect for your sunset wedding portraits. A five-star luxury resort exhibiting unparalleled taste & hospitality. Everything you want from a beach destination plus a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the culture & beauty of East Africa.

If you’re dreaming of an intimate and extraordinary beach wedding, Mozambique in Southeastern Africa is likely just your pace.

Known for its jewel-toned waters, sandy beaches, a string of private islands, and prime opportunities for whale watching—Mozambique truly is a paradise of its own rare and remarkable brand.

The Ceremony

I recommend an elopement at Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort. Twenty-five of your closest friends and family can gather on Pansy Island, a serene sandbank that’s bordered by the kind of bright turquoise waters you have to see in person to truly appreciate.

The Destination

A string of six majestic islands known as the Bazaruto Archipelago sits almost unspoiled off the coast of Southern Mozambique in Eastern Africa. A protected marine reserve, the largest island—Bazuruto—boasts a coastline of clear blue waters and soft sandy beaches that bear the footprints of few tourists. I especially appreciate the uninterrupted serenity you’ll find at this resort—while still having plenty of enriching experiences at your fingertips (think: whale watching, swimming with dolphins, and sunset sailing).
