Pristine Mozambique National Marine Park

We rate the sensational Bazaruto Archipelago as one of the most rewarding wilderness destinations in Mozambique, if not the world. It is here that a rare marine sanctuary protects the ocean wonders that live here in harmony: humpback whales, dolphins, turtles, whale sharks, manta rays and the very shy, rare dugong or sea cow. 

Imagine being part of a 1400 square km ocean park where 5 islands float, two completely wild and uninhabited, the other three transformed into tranquil holiday destinations fit for royalty. A sensory explosion awaits, of enormous flocks of pink flamingos, fish eagles calling, samango monkeys, green coucals, blue-cheeked bee-eaters, bushbuck, red duiker, porcupine and crocodiles – inhabiting the beautiful wetlands, grasslands and huge dunes.  

Meet friendly fisher folk who have lived here for centuries in their rustic simple villages, relying on the ocean bounty. Sustainable tourism shows tourists the way when they come to this region, ethical travel is the way to do it in a changing world.

Definitive Diving in the Bazaruto Archipelago

Pack your diving gear and head to the Bazaruto Archipelago islands to explore numerous scuba diving sites in these untouched waters. Add to this an array of colourful and dazzling dive sites on the seaward side of San Sebastian (south of the islands on the mainland peninsula), a point jutting out in line with the islands. 

Top of the ranks is Two-Mile Reef protecting a narrow channel between the high sand dunes on the south of Bazaruto Island and the long, white beaches of the north point of Benguerra Island. It is well known for its excellent snorkelling sites inside the reef such as the Aquarium, as well as for a host of exciting dives on the seaward side. Spend long days diving and snorkelling at the famous Seven-Mile Reef too and other hot spots in this protected pristine marine park with its underwater magnificent coral reefs.
