Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago is located on the country’s southern coast, the national marine park one of the latest additions to the adventure specialist’s portfolio.
Arno Delport, Sales & Marketing Manager, comment “Largely undeveloped the islands are ideal for anyone in search of a laid back and less touristy beach experience, the coastal town of Vilanculos, the gateway to the Bazaruto archipelago, only a short dhow ride from Magaruque Island where you can hike to a 19th century fort, snorkel with reef fish and turtles or feel the rush on a drift dive. All the more alluring due to their relative obscurity, it’s easy to see why the region been recognised by the WWF as a gift to the earth.”
Further south there are yet more undiscovered beach backdrops; Xai Xai’s coral reef, which runs parallel to the shore, a magnet for a variety of marine life, and Tofo, a whale shark and manta ray haunt on the humpback whales’ migratory route.”
