THINGS TO DO ON ILHA DE MOZAMBIQUE
Ilha de Mozambique may be a small island, but there is a lot to see and discover. There are decades of history to appreciate.
The best way to truly appreciate the island is to take a guided tour with one of the island’s qualified tour guides, who will ensure you don’t miss a thing.
Two of the guides we frequently use for our Coral Lodge Guests are Genito (aka Harry Potter) and James, each with infinite knowledge of the island and the passion for sharing it.
Harry Potter is a very well known personality on Ilha De Mozambique. He provides guided tours, and he can speak five languages, all self-taught. They include English, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
Harry Potter (also known as Genito) has been doing the tours since he was 11 years old. He moved from Nacala when he was eight years and realised there was an opportunity for him to do well with guiding (he was right!). UNESCO also certifies him as a qualified tour guide for the island
He is a vibrant character, full of stories and interesting information.
James has lived on the island for all of his life. He is a very kind and patient man that talks from the heart.
Over and above showing you a lot of the island and sharing fascinating information, he will also share stories of times growing up in the local fishing village called Macuti town, and how he recalls the hard times following the war in Mozambique.
Guests enjoy his tours, as he guides at a calm and understandable pace.
