Testimonials / Feedback from guests

“White Pearl is just 200%. Many details to make you feel special.

Everything is possible (get breakfast or lunch on our own on the beach or in our Villa for example). Staff is just wonderful.
Food is awesome. Chef should come at the end of the dinner to speak few words.
The possibility to arrive by this small plane make that part of the trip very special.
What is important to know is the small plane always wait is you are a bit late for the airport transfer. That why it’s not a problem to leave luggage in Maputo.

We had a great great great time everywhere. And we will definitely come back in all those places for our 10 years anniversary or maybe before…

As I said we will also advice our friends to contact you to organize trips to Africa.

Mr and Mrs Schneider (travelled March 2014)

“Our stay at White Pearl was beyond superb. We enjoyed every minute. We bought your postcards and have been showing everyone what a beautiful resort it is.

Thank you all once again for our superb visit and hope that we can see you again in the not too distant future, together with more of our family.
Kindest regards
