The Bazaruto Archipelago consists of five untouched and idyllic dune islands, strung out in the Indian Ocean’s turquoise waters and ringed by fine white-sandy beaches. Palm trees give way to lush vegetation and tucked away are little villages, shaded beneath orange and cashew nut trees. The surrounding waters are filled with some of Africa’s most unspoiled coral reefs, easy to explore when snorkelling or scuba diving. Discover turtles, dolphins and whale sharks, whilst humpback whales are seasonally sighted between June and September. Observe the dhow fisherman and enjoy deep sea fishing, fly fishing, bird watching, sailing, horse riding, and visits to historic islands like Benguerra.
