Why visit the Bazaruto Archipelago

Perfect for an island honeymoon, romantic getaway and the opportunity to reconnect with family members, the archipelago offers the quintessential beach holiday.

The waters that lap the archipelago are filled to the brim with an array of reef fish, sea turtles and game fish. An assortment of endangered marine life have also been documented here such as whale sharks, manta rays, leatherback turtles, humpback whales and the very rare dugong.

Adventures include scuba diving at some of the best sites in the world, snorkelling, horse riding, various boat excursions, cultural interactions and deep-sea fishing.
