BAZARUTO ARCHIPELAGO

These small, sandy and exquisitely beautiful islands feature some of Africa’s best beaches

The Bazaruto Archipelago

Resting in the warm Indian Ocean just off the coast of Vilanculos in Mozambique, the Bazaruto Archipelago forms part of a protected marine park and consists of five idyllic islands: Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Santa Carolina and Bangue.

These small, sandy and exquisitely beautiful islands feature some of Africa’s best beaches as well as a number of large dunes and freshwater lakes, providing an ideal nesting habitat for black-winged flamingos. Just offshore visitors can explore a kaleidoscope of colourful corals teeming with an array of exotic marine life including manta rays, whale sharks, dolphins, turtles and dugongs. The islands boast several private luxury lodges, many of which provide excellent opportunities for water-based activities including scuba diving, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing and sailing.

Best time to visit the Bazaruto Archipelago

May and June are humid and warm, and October and November are hot and showery, so the best time to visit is in the dry season from July to September.

Sealife

The Archipelago hosts an assortment of marine life including 500 species of marine and coastal mollusks, 2,000 fish species and nine species of marine mammals, including whales, dolphins and the endangered dugong. Migratory species also make use of the park’s productive marine environment and include species such as whale sharks, great white sharks, manta rays, killer whales, Southern right whales, and humpback whales.
