We have just returned from a ten day family holiday staying in a private villa on Vamizi. Quite simply the best "hot" holiday that we have ever been on. A genuine Paradise on Earth. We relaxed more than we believed was possible and had to pinch ourselves each day to appreciate that we really were here. Air and water temperatures are ideal at this time of the year. Also cold enough at night to sleep very well with fans rather than air con. Falling asleep each night to the sounds of the waves gently breaking a few yards away is a guarantee of a good nights sleep.
We flew in via Johannesburg and although a long jourey, no hassle and absolutely worth it.
The Villa, Kipila, was extraordinary, far larger than we expected with beautiful accomodation and its highlight - the staff who could not have been more attentive, more amusing, helpful and genuine friends, they made our holiday.
The beach is icing sugar soft and fine and like nowhere else we have been and because of the distance between villas, seemingly entirely ours. Scuba diving is world class with good reef fish and large pelargic and coral that is untouched and better than i have seen anywhere. We did not fish and so i cannot comment on that. Our only sadness was that the Humpback Whales were late in arriving and so although we saw a couple, they were not as plentful as they will be in a couple of weeks.
Picnic spots are mind bendingly beautiful and have to be seen to be believed. My sons bought out and used their Kitesurf equipment and declared it to be the best they have ever seen with constant onshore breezes of around 18+knots in crystal clear water only a few inches to a couple of feet deep.
If you are someone who wants to relax in Paradise but have plenty to do, not waterskiing, jetskiing or any other intrusive sports i am glad to say, save up and just go. You will not be disappointed.
Tears were shed on departure, we will be back.
