Fancy a honeymoon under the stars but want an upgrade on the simple tent? Well, Vamizi Island, Mozambique's ultimate beach paradise resort, has launched a dhow service, which allows guests staying on the island to hire the beautifully restored, fully staffed, Arab trading vessel, Tusitiri, pictured.
